I'm New

At Center of Praise Ministries you will discover a place of honor through real people who are dedicated to following Jesus Christ our Lord.

Center of Praise Ministries was conceptualized by the divine directive given to our founder and visionary, Bishop Parnell M. Lovelace, Jr.  While yet 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 with core one goal: making disciples of Jesus Christ.   

Our Vision

Our vision is to make full-circle disciples who embrace and respond to the nature of God. Because He's Here (omnipresent)... We Worship. Because He Knows (omniscient)... We Learn. Because He's Able (omnipotent)... We Serve. As disciples, we continue to embrace and respond to who God is, and we are continually transformed to become more and more like Christ.
