NEW YORK, Oct. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- For more than 40 years – and until his transition two years ago – the Honorable Rev. Dr. Frederick J. Eikerenkoetter, popularly known as "Rev. Ike" garnered both acclaim and criticism for his controversial, ground-breaking mind science teachings that attracted millions of followers and changed the face of modern televangelism.

Rev. Ike dared to go where most theologians and preachers would not. As a TV, radio, and mass meetings evangelist, he had the nerve to break away from mainstream religious teachings by preaching "Prosperity NOW," long before it became popular. Rejecting the fundamentalists' literal interpretation of the Bible, Rev. Ike proclaimed that God is not "a man in the sky" but a living presence within each individual and that Individual has the power to transform his or her life by changing his or her thoughts.  

Rev. Ike showed millions of people how to BE, DO, and HAVE all the good that they desire, through the Presence and Power of God that is within them. He became a Spiritual advisor to millions, of all races and religions, and even to those with NO religion.

Subsequently, he was frowned upon and rejected by some mainstream and fundamentalist Christians. Now, however, many famous televangelists, teachers and motivational authors sound just like Rev. Ike, carrying on his legacy of teaching prosperity and positive thinking! Many came to him by night (in secret) to learn from him.

In honor of Rev. Ike's ministry, the historic United Palace Cathedral at 4140 Broadway (175th Street) New York, NY, will host its 44th Anniversary Homecoming Celebration and Installation of Rev. Jack L. Bomar on Sunday, October 30, 2011, at 3:00 P.M., featuring celebrity speakers, performers and honored guests from all across America.

  • The Honorable Inez Dickens, Councilwoman, New York, NY
  • Bishop E. Bernard Jordan, Zoe Ministries, New York, NY
  • Bishop Barbara L. King, Hillside International Chapel and Truth Center, Atlanta, GA
  • Bishop Carlton Pearson, Higher Dimensions International, Chicago,  IL
