Rev Troy Perry be given a Certificate of Recognition from the Huntington Park City Council and (a surprise) recognition from the office of California State Senator Ricardo Lara – presented by Jesus. Rev Perry also delivered the benediction to open the meeting.

As part of the comments during the award presentation, he was able to enlighten the City Council (who were very supportive and attentive) as to the historical significance of the house — just down Miles street, a few blocks from the City Council Chambers. He is very proud to be recognized by the city wherein the church and denomination were founded.
