As a young girl growing up in the South L.A., Angel Chavon Brown Price looked up to her father, a minister who devoted his life to rehabilitating the incarcerated through the gospel. Now, in her role as First Lady of world-renowned Crenshaw Christian Center (CCC), Lady Angel is following in her family’s footsteps, tapping her deep and abiding faith to help others.
Her agenda is simple: to bring more souls to the Kingdom of God alongside her esteemed husband, CCC pastor, Dr. Frederick K. Price.
It is a responsibility she takes seriously. But, while the naturally shy native Angelino confesses that being First Lady of venerable CCC is sometimes daunting, she casts her cares upon the Lord and walks by faith. With God’s grace, she has become a steadfast rock for both her husband and her church family.
One of the numerous ways in which Lady Angel expresses her spiritual devotion is through CCC’s partnership with Union Rescue Mission, a Christ-centered nonprofit that provides food, emergency shelter, medical assistance, and more to Southern California’s needy and unhoused. Such community-based alliances are one of her favorite aspects of ministry.
Lady Angel’s passion for nurturing the minds, bodies and souls of young women inspired her to support CCC’s Big Sisters Program. Through this mentoring enterprise, she has counseled countless girls and young women – her “Priceless Rubies,” as she affectionately calls them – in the areas of self-esteem, confidence, dating and marriage.
Through the years, she has launched a number of programs, including a Faith & Fitness aerobics class which provided a safe, fun, and stress-free environment for women of all ages. In addition, a counseling program, called Marriage Encounter, offers free guidance to married and engaged couples.
She is humbled to serve the people of a church she grew up in (she has been attending CCC since the tender age of three). It is where she met her future husband as a teenager, and where she has marked many blessed milestones in her life including her baptism, nuptials, and the baptismal of her children.
As she and Dr. Price guide their flock through an increasingly complex and technologized world, they consider themselves blessed to have a solid Christian foundation to build upon. They are committed to remaining relevant to the needs of their church and community, while staying true to themselves and the Word of God.
It is no small task, but, as the bible says in Matthew 19:26: “With God all things are possible.”
Pastor Fred and Lady Angel are the proud parents of three children: Frederick, Gabriel, and Bella. When not ministering to others, Lady Angel enjoys spending time with them and extended family and friends, and watching movies, cooking, and exploring new restaurants.
