Through His leadership, the vision for ministry is being brought to the forefront with the following corporations: J. E. Daniel Ministries and Philadelphia Community Development Center. In the year 2000, Bishop Daniel’s vision expanded to a second location on the Westbank, located in Terrytown, LA. In 2003, the vision expanded to a third location, Philadelphia Ministries Northshore. Since Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, the vision has expanded to Houston, TX. Due to the loss of the Eastbank location, the ministry is currently fellowshipping at our Westbank location in Terrytown, Louisiana, which also serves as the new headquarters for Philadelphia Ministries, Int’l.
