I am saddened to announce the sudden and unexpected passing of Pastor Gary Clements of the Roberts Tabernacle Church in Westmoreland, Tennessee.

We had just finished two days of meetings with the North American Leadership Council in Cleveland when we received word that Gary was being rushed to the emergency room. His parents, Bishop Sam and Linda Clements of Cleveland left immediately, along with Debra and I, and Presiding Bishop of Florida Bishop Robert F. and Mary Ann Davis. Bishop Randall Howard left shortly after us, and we stayed with the Clements at the Sumner Regional Hospital in Gallatin, TN until Gary’s brothers and their family arrived.

I am asking for special prayers for Gary’s family. I will post more information as it is received.
