The Rev. Dr. Solomon Drake will be the guest preacher at the Father’s/Men’s Day on Sunday June 18, at Trinity Baptist Church, announced Pastor Alvin Tunstill, Jr.

Inviting the entire community to attend, Tunstill said, “We will have one service at 10 a.m. In keeping with Trinity’s year-long 100th Year Anniversary Celebration, this will be a very special celebratory service honoring all fathers and men.”

Drake is the pastor emeritus of Greater Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles where he served as spiritual leader for 34 years. During his tenure, Greater Ebenezer experienced continuous growth, as well as expanded the edifice, purchased additional properties, opened a pre-school and established a state-of-the-art library. In addition, a portion of South Denker Avenue was designated as ‘Pastor Drake Square’ by the Los Angeles City Council.


“Dr. Drake is well known for his distinguished preaching, teaching and for leading hundreds to Christ. He is a godly man of impeccable integrity, outstanding character and has served as an exemplary leader, mentor and spiritual father to many younger ministers,” added Tunstill.

Trinity is located at 2040 West Jefferson Blvd., in Los Angeles. For information, call the church office at (323) 735-0044.
