Crenshaw Christian Center
The Crenshaw Christian Center is a ministry in South Los Angeles, California, founded by pastor Frederick K. C. Price. It is located on the site of the old Pepperdine University campus, which was sold to Crenshaw Christian Center. Price, oversaw construction of the "FaithDome" on the site, the largest domed church in the United States, seating over 10,000. The church was formerly located on Crenshaw and Hardy in Inglewood, CA
In 2007 Price filed a defamation suit after the ABC television network aired a segment of their 20/20 investigative journalism program about televangelists. Titled "Enough!", it was about how ministries spend their congregants’ offerings. Price claimed that the report painted him as an overly wealthy individual. ABC later apologized on air and in writing.
Crenshaw Christian Center East
The Crenshaw Christian Center East was opened in May, 2001 in the former First Church of Christ, Scientist at 1 West 96th Street on the corner of Central Park West in the Upper West Side neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City. The building was constructed from 1889 to 1903, and was designed by Carrere & Hastings – who had just won the competition to design the New York Public Library – in a style reminiscent of the churches of Nicholas Hawksmoor, a combination of English Baroque and French Beaux-Arts detailing. In 2003, the Christian Science congregation, which had moved to the Second Church put the building up for sale, and it was purchased by the ministry in 2004. The building, which features stained-glass windows by John LaFarge and can accommodate 2,200 people, was designated a New York City landmark in 1974 and is a contributing property to the federally designated Central Park West Historic District.
