The seeds that produced us
L. Frazier White II, Ph.D.
The seed started in 1986 when Elder Cleo White,...
a mom, school teacher, and preacher, along with her husband Deacon Lionel White started a church comprised mostly of her students and youth from several neighborhoods in Washington, D.C. Though she was a longstanding member in an established church, she felt God's call to go to the highways and hedges. L. Frazier White became the Pastor in 1996. In 2010, due to the outreach ministry needs of the community Faith Temple established Faith for the City, Inc. as a standalone non-profit organization.
