Pastor Dies From COVID After Church Told Members ‘Not to Worry God is in Control’

He Should’ve Listened to Dr. Fauci

A Lexington pastor has died after being hospitalized with COVID-19 about two weeks ago, according to Center Point Church and WKYT, the Herald-Leader’s reporting partner.

Tim Parsons, lead pastor at Center Point Church, tested positive for coronavirus a little more than two weeks ago and was hospitalized Aug. 13, according to WKYT. He died Thursday morning, according to WKYT.

Parsons’ health rapidly deteriorated after he was diagnosed with the virus on Aug. 9. He was hospitalized a few days later. Congregants prayed earnestly for God to restore the pastor in an online service last week. A day before Parsons’ death was announced, the church embarked on a period of prayer and fasting. They pleaded with God for his healing and a list of other needs.

In a frequently asked questions section on the church’s website, one of the topics is, “Should I be worried about COVID-19?”

“We don’t want to be worried because the Bible tells us not to worry,” the site states. “We know that God is in control and that He can use all suffering to draw people to Himself. We do want to be wise by practicing what the CDC calls ‘safe distancing.’ We can also look for opportunities to turn Coronavirus conversations into gospel conversations.”
