About the City Of Praise Family Ministries *(see the enclosed video)
The ministry was founded in 1964 under the guidance of the Reverend James R. Peebles, Sr. and Apostle Betty P. Peebles. Jericho City of Praise became one of the largest mega-churches in the nation with more than 15,000 members. Currently, we are a mobile church, operating two satellite locations at Forestville Military Academy in Forestville, MD and Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Greenbelt, MD. The City of Praise Family Ministries is led by the anointed leadership of Senior Pastor, Bishop Joel Peebles and Co-Pastor, Pastor Ylawnda Peebles. Our vision is to Save Families, One Soul At A Time.

“We are extremely confident that when the upcoming court proceedings in the district and other jurisdictions are concluded, they will prove that the board of trustees which has been in place for over 40 years under Bishop James & Apostle Betty Peebles-and now Bishop Joel & Pastor Ylawnda Peebles-is the true board. “ DC CASE 2013 CA 007115 Robert George, ET AL. V Clarence Jackson ET AL. filed in the District of Columbia Superior Court on October 15, 2013 is in the final discovery phase and headed towards trial in the late fall.
“The employees, who asserted themselves during the prolonged season of illness of Apostle Betty Peebles, are unauthorized and illegal. At this point there is no final court order that gives the employees governing control, therefore any actions these employees take will inevitably be deemed void.”
