As pastor of the Allen A.M.E. Church, Flake has easily retained his seat in Congress while building a major community center--including a senior-citizen housing complex and a private Christian school--that employs 800 people. In Congress he champions minority concerns and economic development, and his parishioner-constituents will probably return him to Capitol Hill.
