Citadel of Praise

About the Church

WE ARE A CHURCH THAT LOVES GOD AND LOVES PEOPLE

Citadel of Praise was started in July of 2005. The Lord gave the vision to our Founder and Senior Pastor, Spencer T. Ellis, to begin the ministry after much fasting and praying. God told him to name the church "Citadel of Praise". Citadel of Praise is a church where God replenishes his people with power to resist attack from the enemies of life. In Psalms 100:4, the Lord declares to the people to, "Enter into his gate with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name." The Citadel is non-traditional church where God's spirit takes preeminence.

In September 2006, Citadel moved into its newly purchased property which consists of four institutional buildings on 5 acres of land. The land consists of a 700-seat church, administration building, elementary school, and former convalescent home. In August 2007, the U.S. Census Bureau ranked Detroit as the number one "poorest city" in America with over 30% of its citizens living in poverty. Forbes magazine has named Detroit as number one or in the top 5 of the most "miserable" and/or "dangerous" cities in America over the last 10 years. Therefore, Citadel is committed to stimulating the economic growth and improving the quality of life through Jesus Christ.

Within seven years of ministry, the membership has grown to over 1700 members. Under the leadership of God almighty and his servant, Pastor Spencer T. Ellis, this ministry is "Exploding".

Spencer T. Ellis
Spencer T. Ellis serves as Founder and Senior Pastor of Citadel of Praise Ministry. The Lord began dealing with Pastor Spencer in the 2003, pressing upon him that he was calling him into his own ministry. The Lord pressed upon his spirit that he was chosen for such a time as this and that God had a people in Detroit for him to lead and nurture in the ways of the Lord. Subsequently, after much fasting and praying, Citadel of Praise was started in July of 2005. Within its first year of ministry, under the leadership of Pastor Spencer, Citadel was blessed to purchase 5 acres of land and properties which includes a church, administration offices, elementary school, and former convalescent home. He is currently writing his first book, entitled, “Me, God, and My Destiny.”
