  • Another promising young man yet again removed from this life by people who think they have the right to judge and take other people’s lives. James worked with us here at the Ministry of Finance for a very brief Summer stint. He was an exemplified young and promising young man destined for greatness. RIP James. the Lord will avenge your killing. RIP

  • So very sad. Lord reveal the perpetrators and bring just punishment.

  • Praying in the name of Jesus for the family and the members also that pastor Johnsons family.

  • Why wait on the lord. I’m sure persons must have seen the killer

  • I have never met James, but my heart is deeply saddened by the tragedy that met him in CHURCH!..My profound condolences to his family.
