Saturday morning March 23, 2015, the Washington, DC metropolitan area, the Amherst, Viriginia area, the WYCB family, and the Scripture Cathedral Family lost an Icon in their Pastor, Apostle C.L. Long. He was known by many in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area as “The Radio Pastor.” He broadcasted on WYCB at the same time slot – 12 Noon for 36 years!!! He also was also heard at midnight for most of those years. He was a Father, a Husband, a Pastor, an Apostle, a broadcaster, and a friend to many across the country. His son Elder Donnell Long made a statement.
“Today, I, my family and the Scripture Cathedral church mourn the loss of my father and our Pastor, Apostle C.L. Long. This news comes as a major blow to us all; especially knowing that Bishop Long’s ministry has meant so much, to so many people, over the past 50 years. I would like to thank the Scripture Cathedral family and friends for your loving prayers and support during this time. We have been taught well, and are looking forward to honoring his legacy. I am grateful to God, for giving us such a giant in the faith, community leader and the best father one could ever hope for.” –Elder, Donnell Long
REST IN PEACE — APOSTLE C.L. LONG
