Apostle Jeremiah Ravenell
(contact information below)
In the Bible, Romans 10:13-15 tells us that: "...whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call
on him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? As it is written, HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET
OF THEM THAT PREACH THE GOSPEL OF PEACE, AND BRING TIDINGS OF GOOD THINGS!"
Pastor Ravenell has been anointed by God to preach the gospel to the poor, brokenhearted, captives,
blind, bruised and to preach the acceptable year of the Lord. He is one who gives of himself never looking for anything in return. He exemplifies Jesus Christ as he ministers to the needs of others and shares the gospel of Peace.
When Satan tempted Jesus in the wilderness to command stones be made bread, Jesus' reply was: "It is
written man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word which proceedeth out of the mouth of God." (St. Matthew 4:4)

Christian growth in Christ by providing inspirational and uplifting messages, through Sunday School, Sunday Worship Services, Wednesday Night Bible Studies, Friday Night worship services and revivals.
Pastor Ravenell continues to provide growth and fellowship opportunities when discussing topics
such as "Success Out of Failure", Spiritual Growth, Fasting Prayer and other

In January of 1991, the membership of our church increased so tremendously that Pastor Ravenell had to
relocate his congregation to a new building. God took a very popular nightclub, "Pier 52", and turned it into one of the most beautiful sanctuaries in the area. What used to be the dance floor is now the pulpit where Pastor Ravenell
and many other ministers stand on a cross and a star expounding the Word of God.
In February of 1991, the Alice Temple Day Care Center was established. The purpose of the center is to

compact disc, reading materials, video rentals and sales and other religious needs. He opened the Santee Christian Bookstore, in Santee, South Carolina and the St. Stephen Christian Bookstore in St. Stephens, South Carolina.
In April of 1993, the Alice Temple Miracle Prayer Tower was established to provide prayer and
counseling by the means of telephone. The Prayer and Counseling Line equipped
with qualified trained counselors who counsel according to the Word of God. The
counselors have faith to believe with callers for miracles.
