OUR Hallelujah to the CHRIST as we plan a celebration acknowledging our pastor and wife for 27 years of devotion to the cause of Christ.  We are happy and pleased to say we are the recipients of the words recorded in Jeremiah 3:15 “and I will give you pastors according to thine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.”  We thank God for this kind of pastoral leadership. 

A special invitation is extended to our fellow laborers, family and friends to join us in giving homage to our Pastor, Preacher and Teacher “OUR PASTOR A MAN OF INTEGRITY FAITHFULLY PREACHING AND TEACHING THE WORD OF GOD.”  (SCRIPTURES PSALM 1:1-3, JEREMIAH 3:15 AND ROMANS 1:16-17.)  We feel this theme and scriptures describe our beloved Pastor Solomon L. Drake.  This celebration would be incomplete without acknowledging our Pastor’s wife, Sis. Isabel Drake, a woman that allows the rivers of faith, joy, peace and contentment to overflow in her life giving her many opportunities to sow seeds into the lives of the families of Greater Ebenezer along side her pastor and husband.  Both she and Pastor share in the lives of the families here at the church and in the community in all circumstances.  Our children and youth have a special place in their ministry whereby all of our young people truly feel they are not only spiritual but biological family members of the Drake household.

The celebration begins Sunday, September 20th at the 8:00 am service: Theme speakers for the day are: 8:00 am Bro Chris Johnson. 11:00am Bro. Martin Evans. 4:00pm Sis. Niema Curley.  Special guest at the 4 o’clock service is Pastor Terry Brown and the Liberty Baptist Church.  Sunday, September 27th speakers are: 8:00 am Sis. Jessica Fair.11:00am Deaconess Tracy Williams. 4:00pm Bro. Donald Hunt.  Closing out these special services will be the pastor and congregation of the New Hope Baptist Church, Rev. James S. McKnight.

The invitation is open to all who want to celebrate and wish Pastor and Sis. Drake continued blessings as they continue to give all praises to God as they move about declaring the glory of God to all who cross their paths.

Our address is 5300 South Denker Avenue, Los Angeles, CA.  Should you need additional information call the church office @  323-759-4996  323-759-4996 .
