SAN DIEGO, CA – The KAIROS Company releases the following statement from Dr. David Jeremiah on the passing of Dr. Tim LaHaye:
“Tim LaHaye and I have been friends for over forty years. For thirty-five of those years I have been his pastor. I followed him to the pulpit of what is now the Shadow Mountain Community Church in 1981 and from the very beginning, he has encouraged me, and I have honored him. Tim was one of the most godly men I have ever known. Almost every conversation I had with him ended with his praying with me and for me. He wrote me extended letters of appreciation for what God was doing in our church. We shared long lunches together talking about ministry and praying for our nation.
“When I look back over Tim LaHaye’s life, I am reminded of Paul’s words concerning King David. “He served his own generation by the will of God”
“Tim’s ministry will continue for many years through the books he wrote, the organizations he founded and the people that he influenced. But I will miss him when I look out from my pulpit next Sunday.”
