The Center of Praise Ministries was conceptualized from the visionary directive given to our founder and visionary, Bishop Parnell M. Lovelace, Jr. While a student at Oral Roberts University, Bishop Lovelace was given the mandate to begin a ministry in his native home of Sacramento, California. The ministry has served to embrace people of all backgrounds with a message of unconditional love and abundant grace.
We are a nondenominational, multi-ethnic, and multi-generational Christian church. We seek to model a loving God who loves us as we are, but loves us too much to leave us as we are. He is transforming our lives through our fellowship with Him and with one another.
