Jimmy York 1975-2009

Posted on February 9, 2009

This past weekend, Fellowship Church lost a great friend and an amazing Christian man. Jimmy York died just before midnight on Saturday. He was 33 years old.

Those of us who knew Jimmy knew him as a man of integrity, humility, humor and generosity. He was a true reflection of Christ in our church. A husband, father, leader and friend, Jimmy was always willing to reach out to help anyone who needed it. It was his calling in life. And since 1999, Jimmy fulfilled that call here with us at Fellowship.

He will truly be missed by so many. Please join Lisa, me and the entire Fellowship family in lifting up his wife and his two young sons in prayer. The road they face ahead is rough. But we hold fast to the truth that Jesus Christ, who will lead them through, is full of grace and strength.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight" (Proverbs 3:5-6).

    Pastor Ed,
    Jimmy was my brother in law by marriage, and though I only met him a few times one could easily see his devotion to those he loved. He truly recognized God’s calling both in ministry and in his home. Thank’s for the comments.

    I’m sad to see the loss of such devoted Christ follower and teacher. To magnify our Lord GOD, is to tell others about all the things he is to us, and it sounds like that is what he lived his life for. I could not think of a better legacy to have.

    I knew the entire York family well and know in my heart that God has a real need in heaven for Jimmy. My prayers go out to the entire York family.

    Thank you Fellowship Church for your love for our son. He truly loved the Lord with all his being and he loved this church. We thank you all for being there for Tricia and our grandsons and our prayers are for each of you as you continue to carry on the work Jimmy was so passionate about. God Bless each of you. Thank you for all your prayers. Jimmy’s Mom Bev.

    Ed and Fellowship Church,
    Thank you for your prayer and support for my sister Tricia, Auston and Braxton. I don’t know what would have happened if this church were not in place. Jimmy was an amazing man of God, who was passionate about his job,family,friends and our family will never be the same without him. At the same time we all know that God has a higher purpose. I can’t wait to someday be back in Dallas so I can all Fellowship Church home. God Bless Victoria Brown
