Megachurch Pastor Among Those Stranded at Sea

Posted by

Megachurch pastor Fred Price of Crenshaw Christians Center in Los Angeles was among the 4,500 passengers stranded this week on the Carnival Splendor, reports the Sacramento Bee. Price was on board as a featured speaker for a group of about 30 Christians.   

His daughter Angela Evans told the paper her father probably prayed for the safety of all the passengers. “He probably prayed that all will be well,” said Evans, who is the chief executive of the 25,000-member church. “I’m sure he contained the fire.” 

On Monday the nearly 1,000-foot cruise liner’s engine room caught fire and knocked out power to the rest of the ship. For the last week passengers not only went without the infamous cruise amenities, but also air-conditioning, hot water and telephone service for a portion of the time. 

Pulled by six tugboats, the ship docked in San Diego on Thursday evening; all the travelers and crew were unharmed.
