Apostle Long was regarded in the body of Christ as a ‘father’ to many. While ministering for over 50 years, Pastor Long had broken barriers in both church traditions and media ministries alike. He had been highly esteemed in the city of Washington, DC for his relentless toil in the community addressing social-economic pressures, inner city violence and family conflict. In addition to this, Pastor Long had a heart to respond to national crisis as well. Among his efforts: he was the cause of many area wide initiatives to contribute to the relief efforts for the victims of the 1998 North Carolina Flood, the 2005 Hurricane Katrina disaster, and the 2010 Haiti Earthquake to name a few.
Pastor Long embraced his Apostleship, as he served as a covering and advisor to other Pastors around the country. It was his personal conviction that every believer truly encounters Jesus as Lord in their lives, walking in the power that has been promised to us all to ensure a more abundant life.
Known for his C.L. Long Miracle Crusades, Pastor Long traveled extensively; preaching and teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ around the country.
