On January 26, 2010, the church held it’s first prayer meeting in Oakland, CA at Merritt College in the Huey Newton/Bobby Seale Student Lounge. Since that time, the church, under the leadership of Bishop Christopher C. Smith, has seen consistent growth numerically, financially, and influentially. Oakland holds a special place in the heart of Bishop Smith as it is the place where he got his start in ministry.
The Oakland Cathedral has a number of ministries in place to serve the congregation and surrounding areas including Prayer, Evangelism, Children, Youth, Marriage, Men, and Helps ministries.
Services are held on Tuesday evenings at 7:00PM and Sunday afternoons at 12:00PM at 625 8th Street in Oakland, CA.
