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).
