Praise Chapel began with one church in Maywood, Ca in 1976, when Pastors Mike and Donna Neville moved to the Los Angeles area from Tulsa, Oklahoma.
The area of the church was very strongly gang and drug infested. Within a few years God began to move in a very special way as gang members and their families began to be saved. Soon the church was filled with people on fire for God who went out side the church into the streets and neighborhoods of the Los Angeles are preaching the gospel and seeing souls saved.
Following what God was doing, Mike and Donna began to train pastors and send them out into the various areas of Los Angeles to start new churches. God blessed these new pastors and churches as they reached the unsaved and unchurched people.
Today Praise Chapel Family of Fellowships has multiplied into many areas of the United States and the world. With over 200 churches in the United States and hundreds more in over 13 nations. Praise Chapel has become a “Family of Fellowships.”
