Touring the Holy Land
By Michael Evans

Apostle Fred and Dr. Betty Price traveled to the Holy Land for the next ten days. They departed on April 25th and returned May 5th. A. Michael Evans, VP of Marketing and Executive producer of Ever Increasing Faith Ministries, traveled with them and offered a daily diary of their travels.

Itís 9:20 pm, Tuesday April 27th and Iím dog tired, I can hardly move. But, I had an idea this would happen after getting up so earlyóstill suffering the effects of jet lag. Anyway, went to breakfast and it was awesome. I decided that since I love bread so much and donít eat it much at home due to too many carbs, Iíd try the bread here. Oh my God, is it good. There are so many shapes, sizes and colors and itís all crusty on the outside and delicious on the inside. So, hereís the deal, breakfast is going to be eggs, fruit and breads. Today didnít disappoint. A chef made omelet, diced fruit and lots of delicious bread with homemade jams, coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice.

We checked out of our luxury hotel and watched as the hotel staff loaded the luggage into the brand new Mercedes Benz buses and off we went, through the hustle and bustle of early morning traffic in Israelís largest city and out into the countryside. It was much like taking a trip along the California coast between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara. The day was beautiful, warm, 86 degrees, sunny and awesome. We passed by the cities of Afula, Herzlia, Netanya and others en route to Caesarea.

Community Fair Highlights
By Denisha Randle

View Photo Gallery

Crenshaw Christian Center’s 4th Community Fair kicked off on April 10th at 10a.m. on the beautiful grounds of CCC. Attendees were not only inspired and educated, but enjoyed a number of activities held on the 30 acre-campus. Festivities included a cook-off bake-off, a Spring League basketball tournament, custom car show and a natural body building contest.  The purpose of the fair was not only to bring a community together, but also to raise money for FKCP III Schools in assisting with the continued efforts of educating the whole child—spirit, soul and body.

The fair began with a bang featuring former NFL player Rosey Grier, cancer survivor and R&B singer Charlie Wilson and philanthropist Michael Milken, as they tackled the issues while educating our men on prostate cancer awareness. 

The festivities continued with a cook-off/bake-off, which included three categories consisting of a dessert, a side dish and a main dish. Among our many creative cooks, it boiled down to the following winners:
Dessert Winner:          1st Place - Seranie Ruiz (Banana Pudding)
                                     2nd Place – Minervia Henry (Lemon Cake with Lemon Butter Cream)
                                     3rd Place – Taylor McDaniel (Pound Cake)

Side Dish Winner:      1st Place – Wanda Dennis (Greens)
                                    2nd Place – Minnie Nathan (Black-Eye Pea Salsa)
                                    3rd Place – Emmett Cox II (Beans & Rice)

Main Dish Winner:     1st Place – Shawndree Billingsly (Lasagna)
                                    2nd Place – Jeanette Fant (Lasagna)
                                    3rd Place – Nollie Wilson (Chili)

If cooking wasn’t your cup of tea, there was the Custom Car Show featuring cars with custom paint jobs, low riders sitting on 24-inch shiny rims, big engines and music by Power 106. Our very own Vice President of Marketing Michael Evans  took home the 2nd place trophy for best motorcycle and best bike mural.

FKCP III School’s Drumline, Cheerleaders and Drill Team marched down Price Drive which kicked off the main stage event. Live music began at center staged, hosted by Pastor Robert Cummings, where rapper Reborn rocked the mic with Bible-laced lyrics, gospel group Unity of Praize belted out harmonized worship, saxiphonist Jay Boykin played and our very own Sandra Rios and Meredeth Livingston-Williams put a beautiful Latin twist on praise and worship. Spectators soon became participants when Soulful Steps hit the stage with their sanctified rendition of line-dancing. Also on stage, were demonstrations from Pastor Cummings and his Total Youth Development team, where they showed off combat karate moves.

Sports fan enjoyed watching members of our elite Division 4 Champions, the Price Knights basketball team hooped it up with members from local schools in the Spring League Basketball Tournament. Our work-out enthusiasts were inspired by the well sculpted bodies at the Natural Body Building contest.

More than 40 vendors offered an array of items with everything from art pieces, clothing, gourmet coffee and jewelry.


CCC Member spotlight on Adrian Evans
Bringing Beauty Wherever She Goes
By Antracia Moorings

Adrian Evans, a member of Crenshaw Christian Center and executive assistant to Pastor Fred Price Jr., has been all over Hollywood as of late. Her work as a make-up artist has been landing her gigs in the spotlight since 2006 under the banner of her company, Drini.
Adrian, who was nicknamed Drini by a friend, nabbed her first celebrity in 2006 when a friend asked her to do makeup for an up-and-coming singer named Corinne Bailey Rae.
“I had never heard of her until the day before I was supposed to do her makeup when I saw her picture in People Magazine,” says Adrian, who launched her business in 2002. “We spent the whole weekend with her beautifying her for The Tavis Smiley Show, The Jay Leno Show, and the BET Awards. I was so thrilled.”

Adrian’s most recent red carpet gigs have been on her friend Amber Riley of the show “Glee,” whom she met while Riley was singing backup for their mutual friend Onitsha—another one of her clients. Her makeup brush has graced the faces of some of Hollywood’s brightest including singer Ray J, reality TV star and designer, Whitney Port of MTV’s “The City,” Sinbad, and Vanessa Bell Calloway, just to name a few. Her makeup work has been featured on the Tyra Banks Show, MTV, VH1 and BET, Golden Globes, People’s Choice Awards, TV Land Awards, Screen Actors Guild Awards, ASCAP Awards and Image Awards.

Adrian, who has no formal training as a make-up artist, says the best part of her job is having the opportunity to beautify someone and seeing the finished product on the model themselves, on screen or on an image.

Most recently, Adrian’s work—which she describes as bold, eccentric and fun—was featured in the May 2010 issue of Glamour magazine and the upcoming May 7, 2010 issue of People magazine. Not bad for this 26-year-young, Los Angeles native who got her feet wet at the age of 15 when a friend asked her to do her makeup for the prom. Word of her skills spread far and wide.

“My ultimate goal is to do makeup for film and television, and of course the red carpet,” notes Adrian." I also want to own and operate my own cosmetics line, especially for African-American skin with an emphasis on healthy skin regimens.”

“I cannot take full credit for the opportunities that I have been privileged with because I know that God has allowed me to be who I am and acquire all that I have.”

With an Associate’s of Art in Fashion Design from FIDM and a Bachelor’s of Fine Art in Fashion Design & Marketing, Adrian a.k.a Drini, feels empowered to accommodate past, present and future clients and will continue to grow into a household name.  Lights, Camera, Action!

Basketball Buzz
Compiled by The Knight Chronicle staff. Hereís what the sports media had to say about the FKCP III School varsity Knights in the wake of the teamís sixth CIF state basketball crown, March 26, 2010, at the Division IV boysí title game at the Rabobank Arena in Bakersfield, Calif.

"Los Angeles Price guard Allen Crabbe is the best player in America not selected for the McDonald's All-American game. Heís [delivered] a sixth state title for Price, and in a couple of years, when heís a college All-American at California, people will be asking, ĎHow did he get out of Los Angeles?í Heís 6 feet 6, drains three-point shots, dunks, makes free throws, blocks shots, and got an A in calculus."

The Division IV boysí game was a showcase for Price as the Knights scored a 69-51 victory, but really looked like a showcase for 6-9 forward Richard Solomon, who, along with star teammate Allen Crabbe, are headed to California. Golden Bears fans had to like what they saw in Solomon, who dunked, laid in when he could have dunked, and administered pain from long range. He was outstanding.

Frederick K C. Price III  Students Tour the Nationís Capital.
By Delphine Nelson and Reginald Hardine

On April 12, 2010, the 8th grade class of Frederick K. C. Price III School made history when it embarked on the first Washington, DC tour ever in FKCP III Schoolís 25-year history.  Accompanied by Ms. Anne Beatty, class sponsor and high school English instructor, and Eric Dunn, Middle School Social Studies and Spanish instructor, along with seven parent volunteers, these students were well received at our nationís capital and exposed to an abundance of facts about the origins of our nation.

What is unique about this tour is that it was the unity of the 8th grade parents that made it happen.  Under the leadership of Reginald Hardine and Delphine Nelson, the parents and students joined forces to fundraise, coordinate their itinerary and plan the travel clothing and special outfits for our visit to the White House.  The result was a first-class tour of our nationís capital and historic sites that were key in the shaping of our nation.  Not only that, our students found out that their school and Crenshaw Christian Center are names known not only in Los Angeles, but the nationís capital as well.
