Christ Holy Sanctified Church – Its Mission
The primary ministry objective of Christ Holy Sanctified Church is to convene conferences and conventions on a district, state, jurisdiction, and national level in order to perform functions and conduct business necessary in the administration and growth of its fellowship churches.
The specific purposes of this corporation is to preach and teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout every hamlet, city, village, state, county, and the world in order to win individuals into the Kingdom of Heaven and promote spiritual growth by means, but not limited to evangelism via worship services, television, radio, Internet, personal encounters through its members, fellowship, affiliate churches, conventions, training conferences, schools, and colleges.
Christ Holy Sanctified Church, founded in 1910, is a 501(c) California Non-Profit Religious Corporation with both affiliate and wholly owned subsidiaries established throughout North America and Africa. Subsidiaries are defined as follows:
Wholly Owned Subsidiary – Those congregations (local assemblies) which are under the control of the parent corporation, particularly with regards to real property. Day-to-day operations are under the control of the senior pastor and board of trustees.
Affiliate/Fellowship Subsidiary – Those congregations (local assemblies) which have complete autonomy with regards to its day-to-day operations, financials, and real properties. These congregations operate autonomously and are under the control of the senior pastor and board of trustees.
Wholly Owned and Affiliate/fellowship Subsidiaries are both under the “Ecclesiastical” governance and sovereignty of the National Corporation (Parent Corporation) and convention of churches.
The Christ Holy Sanctified Church is a hierarchical structure with the Board of Presbytery (Board One) being the executive and ruling body. Board One is comprised of individuals that are jurisdictional bishops or presiding elders (superintendents) that have been elected by members of Board One or elected from the members Pastors’ Council (per available seats).
Ecclesiastically, dioceses, jurisdictions, districts, and the local assemblies are what make up the national organization. The national departments (auxiliaries) of Women, Sunday school, Youth (H.Y.P.B.S. – Holy Young People Bible Study), Evangelism, Usher, and Music serve throughout the national conventions and are a pattern for the jurisdictions, districts and local churches. The Pastors’ Council is open to all senior pastors of the organization as a conclave for providing support, encouragement, court of appeal, and as constituents for the Board of Presbytery
The Board of Administration (Event Planning, Convention Services, Hospitality, Leadership Conferences, Transportation, Audio Service, Public Relations and Corporate Communications, etc.) executes the planning and logistics for all national related conventions, events, activities annually and throughout the year.
The support staff of the organization consists of the Departments of Finance and Accounting, Budget, Adjutancy, Credentials and Compliance, Special Honors, Presentations, and Recognition, and many select committees and councils provide day-to-day operational and administrative support.
The National Departments (Auxiliaries) of the Christ Holy Sanctified Church serve the church body in general and functions throughout the year providing leadership, fund raising, and seminars and training sessions during the general convention and leadership conferences.
Each department president and executive staff members serve a four (4) year term as nominated by the respective department executive staff and elected and approved by the Board of Presbytery. There are no limits on the number of terms that may be served. However, some departments positions are appointed (versus being elected) and serve at the pleasure of the organization, therefore, have no set limit of service.

In the early 1900’s, Mother Sarah A. King established the “Home and Foreign Mission Society” as a department that helped women of all ages, and primarily those that were disadvantaged and unlearned, in becoming better mothers, wives, and servants of God.
During the 1960’s and later years, Bishop Ulysses and Sister Tryphosa King carried on the vision of “missions” started by Mother King by carrying the gospel and extending a helping hand to those in several countries in Africa as they took several teams over the course of many years. Many churches and “missions” were established during that time. Mother Lola Hayes also did mission work in Tijuana, Mexico and other parts south of the border.
After the deaths of Bishop U.S. and Sister King, the organization’s priority towards foreign mission diminished, leaving a void in sending and supporting missionaries and maintaining a presence in foreign countries. But, the harvest is still truly plentiful and we are excited for the opportunity to rebuild the mission objective and directive and continue the vision of Bishop and Sister King.
“38/38 Club” Mission Support Plan
What is the “The 38/38 Club” Mission Support Plan? Simply, we are asking that you pray 38 minutes a week (5.4 minutes per day) and share a recurring monthly investment of 38 pennies ($0.38) or, 38 dimes ($3.80) or, 38 quarters ($9.50) or, 38 half-dollars ($19.00), or $38 a month toward the “international missions” budget. Or, you may wish to make a one time contribution of $1,000, $500, $100, $50, $25, or any other amount. Whatever the Lord puts in your heart to assist the mission’s department budget will be greatly appreciated. These funds will be used to:
- Help train pastors in Uganda, Liberia, and Nigeria
- Offset travel expenses for planned missions trips
- Build schools and orphanages
- Repair existing churches
- Purchase food, supplies, equipment, and much needed materials (Bibles, computers, clothing, furniture, medical/sanitation supplies)
“Go into all the world…what a tremendous privilege it is to be serving the Lord on the foreign mission field. Christians worldwide should be celebrating the fact that our Savior is alive, and that we have the opportunity to share this Good News with everyone we meet – in foreign lands, and in our back yard. All it takes is saying “Yes, Lord, I will.” We invite you to consider being a part of our work, through going, giving, and praying.” (Helping Hands Mission Organization).
What Else Can You Do?
For the challenges that lie ahead of us, it will be impossible for one person to carry out global missions work; this must be a united team effort that will grow beyond the lifetime of the present leadership. There are some that are willing to be “local global missions coordinators” in their churches, willing to work with CHSC in continuing to build a successful missions ministry (locally) as well as develop our foreign missions work in Uganda, Nigeria, Liberia, and other parts of the world where we have contacts. These persons will also help coordinate short-term missions trips for those from CHSC ministries, as well as friends of CHSC.
Please join in with Elder Edward Udell, Sr., Director of Missions for CHSC, in helping to continue the vision and directive. “One can chase a thousand; two can put 10,000 to flight”.
A Church Without Walls…
and a roof, doors, floor, seats…. We are helping to support churches and missions that literally do not have walls or any other semblance of a place to worship God. Yet, these “warriors” continue to preach the gospel as best they can with what little they have but they need our help. For just a few pennies a day (in local currency), you will help provide shelter, lights, furniture, sanitation and other conveniences we truly take for granted. Won’t you pray and ask God to guide you in what it is you can do to help those that are less fortunate than us here in America?
