Pastor Kenneth Green was in the middle of a sermon about the importance of persevering when he collapsed and died inside of Greater Saint Mary Baptist Church in New Orleans, Louisiana. Green’s last words were, “If the Lord called me now, I’m ready to go.”
The sudden death shocked the congregation and Martin burst out in tears when she saw her pastor tumble to the ground.
“He took a swallow of water, before he took water he wiped his face, and then he looked up and it looked like his eyes were rolled back, like there was no life in his eyes, and he tumbled over. Everybody was in a state of shock people were crying,” she said.
Green leaves behind a wife and three children. The family is currently awaiting autopsy results. They describe Green as a man known for ministering to the poor and his congregation.
The Godfruits take-away: Pastor Green knew his time had come, and God took him home, his task on earth at long last accomplished. God keep his family in this time of loss and grief.
