A great pastor in our fellowship went home to be with the Lord last night. Mark Denyes was founding pastor of Emmanuel Christian Center in the Twin Cities and a great man of prayer.

He lived as a great example of a pastor for thousands. For me, he was an example of a man of prayer.

He is no longer homesick for a place he’s never been. He is now home.

Eternal memory.

7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. (II Tim. 4:7, NIV)

 

One thought on “Finishing Well

  1. What a great man of God. He dedicated Brenna and Steven back when his church was still called Fridley Assembly of God. And you’re right, his vision and leadership grew out of a rich prayer life. He will be missed!
