Cleveland, TN--One of the most renowned leaders in the history of the Church of God passed away, Sunday, February 21, 2016, at his home in Cleveland, Tennessee. He was 87.

Details on memorial and funeral services are forthcoming.

"To paraphrase the words of David, '…a prince and a great man has fallen this day …'"

Church of God General Overseer Mark Williams stated upon learning of Dr. Lowery's passing. "T.L. Lowery moved among us as a man sent from God.  His passion for souls led him to the four corners of the earth to testify of the greatness of God and His Son, Jesus Christ.  He preached the Gospel, laid hands on the sick, and imparted spiritual blessings to people far and near.  He led with distinction and prophetic unction.  He inspired all of us to reach a little higher and to shout unto God with the voice of triumph.  He not only belonged to the Church of God but to the Body of Christ, and now, to the ages."

"I will miss him.  The church will miss him," Williams concluded," but his legacy will live on through his son and daughter-in-law, Steve and Janice, his grandchildren Aimee, Stephanie, Jon and Michael and the countless spiritual sons and daughters whom he has mentored."

Dr. Lowery's life and ministry was extensive and is best told on the website of the T. L Lowery Global Foundation.
