Pacific Mount Olive Church of God in Christ (PMO) will celebrate 96 years of service to God and to the community on Sunday, April 28, at 3:30 p.m., in the sanctuary located at 1385 E. 21st St., in Los Angeles.

Bishop Frank and Lady Sandra Stewart will be the special guests, said Superintendent Milton and First Lady Belinda Joyner. The Stewarts are the spiritual leaders of Zoe Christian Fellowship of Los Angeles.

“In his early years, Bishop Stewart served as the assistant pastor at Pacific Mount Olive under his uncle, the late Bishop E.B. Stewart, who was the first bishop appointed by COGIC founder, the late Bishop Charles Harrison Mason, to head COGIC churches in Northern California,” said Pastor Joyner. “The members of the PMO church are proud of the heritage of the great leaders that the Lord has provided.”

PMO was organized in 1923 in a house prayer meeting with Elder Johnny Robins named as the first pastor. Bishop Mason assigned Bishop E. B Stewart to lead the congregation and he served as pastor from 1931 to 1969.  Supt. J.C. Brewster became pastor in 1969 and headed the church for the next 30 years.

Spence. “There will be music by the PMO choir, Cynthia Mizell,  the Stewart Family and Friends Singers, Elder Gregory Farrell and the Farrell Family and gospel saxophonist, Peter Everett.”
