Rev. Dr. Wendell Anthony
Following the passing of the founding pastor of Fellowship Chapel, Rev. Anthony, decided to establish the James Edward Wadsworth, Jr. Community Center (JEWJCC) in honor of his mentor. Pastor Jim, as he was affectionately known, had a love and passion for the City of Detroit and the people of God. The JEWJCC, since its inception in 1987, has been serving the people with a genuine love and passion for the betterment of their lives.
