Pastor James and his wife have pastored the Ephesians New Testament Church for 25 years; they officially organized the church in 1985. Throughout the years Pastor James has feed the hungry through the praise kitchen, clothing the needy through their mission department; and have stood up for the rights of their parishioners on issues that were unfair.

Pastor James was appointed to the police council whose role was to help insure that enough officers were on the street to keep the community safe. He has been a champion for keeping the Dr. King legacy before the community, which has resulted in the Children’s Wing of the Lewis Technology Center Library being named after Dr. King also a statue called the “Column of Knowledge.”

The gala event will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn Fontana, 10543 Sierra Ave. in Fontana.

There will be a special guest appearance by the former Grammy nominated artist Minister Keith Pringle. The speaker for the evening will be the Rev. Dr. James A. Forbes Jr., Pastor Emeritus of the Riverside Church New York, New York and a retired Professor of Homiletics, Union Theological Seminary, listed in Ebony Magazine as one of the top 10 African American Preachers in the country.
