“Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His Saints.”
God, who is omnipotent and omniscient, has summoned His Server, Bishop Lee Ward, to eternal rest. Upon his passing, he faithfully served as Auxiliary Bishop under the leadership of Bishop Jerry L. Maynard, Prelate of the Fourth Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction of Tennessee.
During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic resulting in local and state restrictions on public gatherings to achieve social distancing, the Ward family will hold a private memorial service for this servant. When the restrictions are lifted, a date will be set for a Jurisdictional Memorial Service that will appropriately recognize the godly life and notable achievements of Bishop Lee Ward.
During this time of uncertainty, we request the continued prayers as well as acts of emotional and spiritual support for the family. It is with great honor that the National Adjutancy will assist the family and the Tennessee Fourth Jurisdiction during this most difficult time.
“Blessed be the God, even the father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort.”
