Reverend David George

Posted on September 15, 2015 By

It is with great sorrow coupled with the hope that is ours in the resurrection that the EPC Church Planting Planning Team mourns the passing of our dear brother Reverend David George.  Davide was recently diagnosed with a very rare form of pancreatic cancer which spread very rapidly.  David died over the weekend and is now in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ forever.  Please join us as we pray for his wife Jayne and their extended family along with his spiritual family in the Christ Church of East Bay community.

Let me share some of David's favorite verses with you in this moment of grief.  From Psalm 103

Bless the Lord, O my soul.

And all that is within me,

Bless his holy name

Bless the Lord, O my soul,

And forget not all his benefit,

Who forgives all your iniquity,

Who heals all  your diseases,

Who redeems your life from the pit,

Who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy.


Only By His Grace,


Dr. Tom Ricks

EPC Church Planting Planning Team Leader
