Please join West Angeles Church of God In Christ as we wish Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake a very Happy 78th Birthday!

We are truly thankful that God has blessed us with a shining example of a family man, a leader, and a role model! 

As Presiding Bishop to the Church of God In Christ denomination, Bishop Charles E. Blake Sr. is one of our nation’s modern day heroes and we are proud to call him our spiritual leader. He is the pastor of West Angeles Church of God In Christ, which maintains a membership of over 24,000.

Bishop Charles E. Blake is the epitome of a servant. His entired life is – and has been – dedicated to loving his fellow man more than himself. He is first a husband to Mae Lawrence Blake. Together, they have three children and eight grandchildren.

West Angeles is deeply involved in providing not only for the spiritual life of its people, but for the more than 80 programs aimed at the psychological, social, and economic enhancement of the community. Bishop Blake is a humble humanitarian and communitarian, whose dedication to serving men, women and children across the globe knows no bounds.

Bishop Charles E. Blake is the author of Free to Dream and Encountering God. His books focus on the enhancement of life and how to have a more fulfilling relationship with God. He also published The Legacy Conference Setspecifically for those who want to expand their own ministry.

Bishop Blake’s dedication to service has touched the masses, and on April 6, 2009, in Washington, D.C., President Barack Obama tapped Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake to serve on his 25-person White House Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. He was also tapped as one of four to speak at the Democratic National Convention’s first Ecumenical Service, where he pronounced his status as pro-life democrat and challenged both Democrats and Republicans to protect the rights of the unborn and born alike.

Happy Birthday to a man who has inspired many and continues to lead in humility, love, and worship!

I love WEST A and I Love Bishop Blake and Lady Mae with all my heart, THANK GOD FOR YOU BOTH….

    This year has been bittersweet. February 21st our family home burned down and we lost everything and then March 10th my mother died from a massive heart attack .
    Bishop Blake came to our convocation in June. He signed the resolution I was sent for my mitger, Evangelist Bonnie Green’ s Homegoing service and then reached over, picked up my grandson, Adus’Ray and kissed his forehead. Look, I’ve always love Bishop & Lady Blake but these 2 acts by our Presiding Bishop soothed the pain that I’d been living and drowning in .
    I Love You Bishop Blake!!!
    Have a blessed and prosperous day!!!
    & Adus’Ray
