Meet Our Pastor


Born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is the visionary, founder and Senior Pastor of the Praise Center Church in Wilmington, Delaware.  Pastor Middleton shepherds a growing and diverse flock of members varying in age, race and socio-economic background.


In May of 2000 Praise Center was established.  The church was located in the Center City section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at 22nd & Chestnut Street. The cradle of the Praise Center’s humble beginning began with seven members. The church focused on outreach in the community.  As a result, many people have turned from a life of sin. What began with seven members has now grown.  Pastor Middleton anointed to preach, teach and rightly divide the Word of God without fear and reservations.


The need for souls to be saved is always the priority and in the heart of Pastor Middleton.  In December 2004, Praise Center Church relocated to 715 N. Bancroft Parkway in Wilmington, Delaware.


The vision God gave to Pastor Middleton founded on Prayer, Praise and Power.

As he led the people of God in prayer and praise, he labored diligently in preaching the gospel to ensure that everyone receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.  Pastor Middleton's ability to motivate, inspire and empower through the Word of God is drawing people from all occupations to Christ.


Bishop Elect Marvin L. Winans consecrated Pastor Steven L. Middleton in the Office of Pastor with Perfecting Fellowship International.


Pastor Middleton is married to Renee Middleton; they raised two of their nieces. They have been friends for 43 years and married for 30 years.
