Billy Joe Daugherty

Received word this morning that Billy Joe Daugherty, pastor of Victory Christian Center in Tulsa died yesterday after a brief battle with Non-Hodgkins lymphoma. He was only 57.

Pastor Daugherty was a great spiritual leader. Although I disagreed with a bit of his theology, I've always admired his ministry, and have been inspired by his teaching.
His congregation launched the Tulsa Dream Center, which houses a food and clothing distribution, dental/medical clinic, legal counseling, recreation facilities and other programs to help needy people of Tulsa.
Through his influence, 523 Victory Bible Institutes have been started in 85 countries around the world.
I'd call that a missional ministry. Well done, thou good and faithful servant.

I guess faith healing didn't work for the faith healer.

Dear Anonymous,

I always feel it is up to God whether we are healed here on earth, or God decides to heal us in Heaven. Perhaps God felt Billy Joe's work was complete here on earth.
