Pastor Crutch operates in the Prophetic and Teaching/Preaching gift of the five fold ministry. Called at the early age of 16 years old, Pastor Crutch committed to being a loyal son of the Gospel, preaching and proclaiming the good news of our Lord Jesus Christ.

While serving in his local church as a teenager, Dr. Crutch met and later married the love of his life the lovely Lady Adrien D. Crutch and together they united to do the work of the Lord. In 1991, the Lord called Dr. Crutch to the office of Pastor. It was at that time Praise Temple was formed. The Lord gave Dr. Kenneth Crutch a vision to gather and restore those that are bruised, broken and bewildered, building and developing them into people of faith, purpose, power and praise. In the year 2002, Pastor Crutch was directed to re name the church New Praise Christian Life Center.
