It was confirmed today that Bishop T.D. Jakes will do the eulogy for Rev. Dr. Zachery Tims. The services will be this Saturday in Orlando,Florida.
On Friday, August 19, 2011 there will be a Wake and Viewing at NewDestiny Christian Center located at 505 East McCormick Road, Apopka, Florida. Viewing will be from 3:00pm to 7:00pm and the Tribute Service will be 7:00pm to 8:00pm.
The Funeral Service will be held at 1st Baptist Church of Orlando, which is located at 3000 South John Young Parkway in Orlando, Florida. The final viewing will be at 10:00am and the Service will began at 11:00am. Each of the services will stream live on the church’s website www.NDCC.Tv for those of you that will not be able to attend.
Dr. Zachery Tims, Jr. will be taken home to Baltimore, Maryland for his Interment.
At this time nothing has been determined about the future leadership of the church. The contact said their main focus is to get through the weekend right now. Additionally, it was added that everyone is still very much in shock and that the results have not yet been confirmed of how Zachery Tims died nor what the white powdery substance was found in the pocket of the short pants he was wearing when he was found dead in his hotel room at the W Hotel inTimes Square.
Most likely the results will be held until after the funeral service to keep it from being a greater negative image cast over this Man Of God remains. Bishop Thomas Dexter Jakes is just the man to deliver a very difficult eulogy and will see to it that Tims is put away with the dignity that he deserves. Mr. Obnoxious recently found out that Bishop Noel Jones was offended that he was not asked to preach the eulogy, but it seems that Tims was much closer to Jakes. However, Jones will not be able to attend do to a prior speaking engagement.
Again it was requested that we all continue to pray for the Tims Family and the church family.
It has been confirmed that the Tims Family will not allow members of the press to attend the services nor will it be aired live on The Word Network nor stream on the church’s website!
Details will continue to be posted on Obnoxious TV!
