Please join West Angeles Church of God In Christ as we wish Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake Blake a very Happy 76th Birthday! We are truly thankful that God has blessed us with a shining example of a family man, a leader, and a role model!
Pastor to West Angeles Church and Presiding Bishop to the Church of God In Christ denomination, Bishop Charles E. Blake, is arguably one of our nation’s modern day heroes and we are proud to call him our spiritual leader.
Bishop Charles E. Blake is the epitome of a servant. His whole 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. He is the pastor of West Angeles Church of God in Christ, which maintains a membership of over 24,000.
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 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!
