For more than a century, Phillips Temple Christian Methodist Episcopal Church has spread the Gospel throughout South Los Angeles and now, Pastor Bernard Jackson and his congregation are preparing to observe their 113th anniversary.

The celebration takes place on Sunday, Jan. 26, at 10:30 a.m., in the historic sanctuary located at 973 E. 43rd St., in Los Angeles. The theme is “In Partnership with God for 113 Years” and the scriptural reference is Mark 6:8.

“This is a momentous occasion for Phillips Temple and we want the L.A. community to celebrate this exciting milestone with us,” said Jackson. “Bishop Kenneth W. Carter, presiding prelate of 11th Episcopal District, will bring an uplifting message to help you grow in your walk with Christ.”

Carter was elected and consecrated as the 55th CME bishop in 2006. Previously, he served as a presiding elder in Mississippi and as pastor of Carter Metropolitan CME Church in Fort Worth, Texas for 10 years. He also led parishes in Tennessee, Virginia and Washington, D.C.


A native of Corinth, Mississippi, Carter earned his B.A. degree from the University of Mississippi, Master of Music Education from Delta State University, Master of Divinity from Howard University, and Doctor of Divinity degree from Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist University.
