Church officials of Pastor Zachery Tims‘ New Destiny Christian Center have announced that his funeral will be held on Saturday at 11 AM at First Baptist Church of Orlando. A wake and public viewing will be held from 3-7 PM on Friday at New Destiny Christian Center in Apopka.
Last night at New Destiny Christian Center in Apopka, members gathered in the sanctuary with prayers and remembrance of the 42-year-old pastor and former host of 102 Gospel JAMZ.
The Orlando Sentinel is reporting that Jamal Bryant, a Baltimore pastor and friend of Pastor Tims, attended the gathering and gave these words to the congregation:
You are not a personality-driven church. You are a purpose-driven church. Pastor Zack’s DNA is now on you. You are infected with excellence.
Allow yourself the liberty to grieve. Allow yourself the freedom to cry.
