Pastor Whittley and First Lady Angela Whittley, along with their three sons, Dorian, Lorenzo, and Dominique, were members of Rock Temple COGIC in Clarksville, TN for seventeen years. During those seventeen years, fifteen of them were spent as members of leadership in the local, state, and national ministries. Pastor Whittley and his wife served faithfully where they were planted, growing and fulfilling God’s call on their lives.
Duty called and the military moved them to Fort Carson, Colorado where they also served in the eldership and as leaders at the Christian House of Prayer in Colorado Springs, CO, under the dynamic leadership of Pastor Charles Tedder and First Lady Allison Tedder. While in Colorado Springs they matured in God even the more. God spoke to both Pastor and First Lady Whittley individually, confirming on several occasions what they both knew years prior, that God was calling them to begin the ministry. God further instructed Pastor Whittley that they would have to return to Clarksville, TN/Fort Campbell, KY to both retire from the U.S. Army and begin the ministry. They shared this great news with Pastor Charles and First Lady Allison, who gave them their blessing and Pastor and First Lady Whittley told them the new church name would be named Christian House of Praise of Middle Tennessee (MiT), also known as “CHOPMIT”.
On August 2, 2016 Pastor and First Lady Whittley set out to establish the ministry. Their first service was held at the Oak Grove Community Center and eight people were in attendance. The Oak Grove Community Center currently remains where services are held.
All the Glory belongs to God! This is just the beginning. Christian House of Praise is trusting each day our numbers will grow as God adds to the church those who are saved, desire to be saved and are willing to grow up into Him in all things and go to “The Next Level”.
We currently have three services, Saturday morning prayer at 9:00 am, Sunday morning worship at 10:00 am and Tuesday Night Teaching (TNT)/Bible Study at 6:30 pm. Let’s go together to “The Next Level” in God and in life!
