Price Sr. reclaiming the helm is typical in the Word of Faith church community, even at his advanced age.

Many traditional churches have been around for hundreds of years and they have pastors who are hired and can be fired. In many modern church fellowships, the founder leaves the ministry as an inheritance for their children. Robert Schueller turned the reigns of the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove CA. over to his son Robert Jr. When he was embroiled in controversy, Schueller Sr. stepped back in the pulpit for a season. There were some changes and now the current church pastor is Bobby Schueller, the grandson of the founder.

Jerry Falwell founded Liberty University and Thomas Roads Baptist Church. It was written into his will that his church would be pastored by his son Jonathan and the University run by Jerry Jr. Should Fred Price Jr. not return to the pulpit, his father and the church elders will have to find a suitable replacement. To date, the only other minister who has been utilized on the television broadcast from the Crenshaw Christian Center California location is Fred Sr.'s wife Betty, who also is advancing in age. More than likely Pastor Price Jr. will return as he said after a time of restoration.
