The Rev. Jerred K. McDaniel was recently appointed the new pastor of First AME Zion Church, located at 1085 N. Raymond Avenue in Pasadena.
Bishop Staccato Powell, presiding prelate of the Western Episcopal District of the AME Zion Church announced the appointment during the 97th Session of the Southwest Rocky Mountain Conference held at Martin Temple AME Zion Church in Compton.
A native of Montgomery, AL, McDaniel earned a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration and a Master of Science degree in human resource management from Troy University of Montgomery. He also serves as Los Angeles Area Manager for AAA Parking.
“Rev. McDaniel is a prophetic minstrel and intercessory prayer warrior,” said member Annie Northern. “His heartbeat for the people of God is evidenced by his use of the many spiritual gifts afforded him by the Holy Spirit to usher in the presence of God, both corporately and private.”
“Please join the members of First A.M.E. Zion Church in welcoming to this young energetic man of God to our great city,” she added.
