Eugene C. McCown, Jr.

Pastor McCown



Eugene C. McCown, Jr. has been serving his community since college days attending San Diego State University.  As a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Eugene served as a high school mentor; provided math tutoring to high school and college students; generate programs to include college attendance among under-represented communities; worked at food shelters; and so much more.  Though college days swiftly passed, Eugene has always had a heart for people and after planting Praise Center Church in Dumfries, Virginia, he launched WeSERVE in January 2016 to assist in the fight against hunger in Prince William County by partnering with the Capital Area Food Bank.  With the desire to provide more than food resources, he opened a six seat state of the art computer lab in November 2019.  Eugene believes the best is yet to come and looks forward to expanding WeSERVE’s reach in the community in 2020.
