LANDOVER, Md., — Bishop Joel, Pastor Ylawnda Peebles and The City of Praise Family Ministries Return to Jericho Church and Campus. Bishop Joel, Pastor Ylawnda Peebles and The City of Praise Family Ministries will host their return home celebration service Sunday on August 30 at 4 p.m. at 8501 Jericho City Drive in Landover, Md.

If you’ve ever lost a home, a job or even your peace, this event is proof that by God’s Grace, you can recover,” said Bishop Joel Peebles, “After years of being displaced, the City of Praise congregation of more than 12,000 members is returning home to our Landover campus.”

“This is truly a season of restoration and reconciliation. On this special day, the Body of Christ is coming together as one–in unity to worship our loving God,” said Pastor Ylawnda Peebles.
The ministry was founded in 1964 under the guidance of the Rev. 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. The ministry is located at 8501 Jericho City Dr., Landover, Md.
