Malenda,

You need to start by claiming the listing so that you can edit the categories on it. Please go to https://www.google.com/maps/place/Living+Word+Ministries/@38.1406658,-121.2958776,15z/data=!4m2!3m1!... and click "Claim this Business" to start.

Pentecostal church is a category in GMB. Are you not seeing it as an option?

Are you making sure we are listing under Pentecostal, so we come up when someone is searching for Pentecostal churches? Sent via the Samsung Galaxy Note® 4, an AT&T 4G LTE smartphone

Malena,

I don't know what church you are referring to but you would need to start by claiming the listing for it through Google.com/business and then you can edit the categories it is associated with.
