Living Legend Luncheon

The Living Legend Award was a dream that God placed on the heart of our former President and Founder, Dr. E.K. Bailey. It became a reality over twenty-three years ago because of the heart of E.K. Bailey Ministries, Inc. staff, volunteers, the Board of Directors, and the members of the Concord Church staff. As the Lord used these diligent individuals to put “feet“ on Dr. Bailey’s prayers, this prestigious luncheon has become one of the most anticipated events during the E.K. Bailey Preaching Conference.

For the past 24 years, the Living Legend Award has been presented to a “preacher‘s preacher” who has been committed to delivering God’s word with passion, proficiency, and profundity for many generations. The recipients have been committed to spotlighting God’s name, His character and His message of hope.


Founded over 9 years ago by Dr. Tara Jenkins, Ministry Mates was created to equip, encourage and empower pastors’ wives for their unique and specific roles of ministry. Ministry Mates is an extended family of pastors and preachers’ wives helping each other maximize their lives, influence, and impact through gatherings, trainings, and resources.

Each year during EKBPC, Ministry Mates convenes at the beautiful Fairmont Hotel with a fun schedule of empowering programs and sessions for First Ladies and wives. Co-hosted by Concord Church’s First Lady, Stephanie Carter, this is one women’s collective that you don’t want to miss!
