Bishop Edgar L. Vann, II is the senior pastor of the Second Ebenezer Church.

In the news

The Reverend Edgar L. Vann Jr. accepted the position of pastor at Detroit's Second Ebenezer Baptist Church in 1977; just 21 years old at the time, he assumed control of a church that had missed its last 31 bank payments and which claimed only 66 members. During his first year Vann accepted no salary, supporting himself instead as a bank teller; over that 12-month period the church emerged from debt, and slowly its congregation rose to over 2,000 members.
