Church Community Vows To Continue Work Of Its Beloved Pastor

SAVANNAH, GA -

A church in mourning isn't letting their grief get in the way of continuing the work of its beloved pastor. Pastor Freddie Hebron of the Christian Revival Center passed away Monday.

"Rather than standing behind a pulpit he was one of us with a servant's heart and constantly, constantly gave not just spiritually but he gave physically to people in the most dire need the ones who are hopeless, and broken, homeless, and addicted, and suicidal," said Lara Love.

Pastor Freddie Hebron's dedication to helping those in need could be felt community wide. 

"He's taught me so much, giving me so much, did so much for so many people. I mean I don't know too many pastors who would take homeless people off the street and into their house," said Terrie Webb.

The community leader may not be here in body his giving spirit will carry on at the Christian Revival Center.

"He said we have to walk in our calling and he walked in his calling so our soup kitchen will continue our clothes closet will continue. We always lead here at this church," said Antoinette Dunham.

The pastor's helping hand also extended to the people of Haiti. He was there when the 2010 catastrophic earthquake hit spending weeks helping with the recovery effort. He continued his visits with that nation until his passing. 

"On Sunday, his last ministering to us, he said we would do 62,000 children and we will do 62,000 children we will not let our pastor's vision perish," said Dunham.

As the congregation continues to serve they have a wealth of life lessons to look back on.

"He taught us not to grieve when people die he taught us to celebrate and rejoice that through faith in Christ they end up in heaven and that's where he is with Christ," said Love.

If you would like to pay your respects to Pastor Hebron, his funeral is Saturday at 11 a.m. at the Christian Revival Center on Bull Street.
