“There is no greater pain than a loved one who our Lord calls home. Our beloved Pastor, Friend and Spiritual Father Lock P. Beachum, Jr. transitioned to his home in glory to be with our Lord! Although we mourn the loss, we do not mourn as those without Hope. For we know our Pastor loves Jesus Christ with his whole heart and is now in His presence eternally. This is a time to mourn, yet we also rejoice in the life and legacy our Pastor has left and the thousands of lives he has impacted…this is Legacy.

Please continue to pray and lift up the entire Beachum Family, especially; First Lady Gloria, Brandon, Patterson, Nyomi, Mom and Dad Beachum during this time. We honor our Pastor Lock P. Beachum, Jr. as we love and pray for his family and church family.”
