In 1997, as Cathedral Of Praise (formerly Pentecostal Tabernacle) began planning for the construction of the new 1800 seat Sanctuary and Worship Center. Bishop Maynard chose Church Builders United, a partnership of minority-owned contractors. Also, minority and women-owned businesses worked as sub-contractors on the project. Bishop Maynard further insisted that the labor force is made up of a significant number of minority workers. Thus, approximately eighty-percent of the laborers working on the construction of the facility were African-American and Latino.
