A beloved pastor in Jackson has died from COVID-19.
Pastor Devon Adams of Word of Christ Ministry was known as a pillar in the community for more than a decade.
His church family said that for more than 18 years he devoted his life to making the Jackson area a better place to live. He even started a food drive during the pandemic.
Pastor Charles Alexander said Adams will be missed, but that his commitment to the community will carry on. “He just wanted to encourage the community and people,” said Alexander. “Get their life right with the Lord. That was his vision, just seeing others get set free.”

This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief. However, for this reason I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show all longsuffering, as a pattern to those who are going to believe on Him for everlasting life. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
1 Timothy 1:15-17
