Dr. D. James Kennedy: A man for the ages





FacebookTwitterGoogle+
By Robert Meyer

Last week in the mail, I received a letter from Brian Fisher, the executive vice-president of Coral Ridge Ministries. The letter stated that Dr. D. James Kennedy, one of the Christian stalwarts of our times, had retired from his pastorate at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Dr. Kennedy had a heart attack last December, and complications from that condition have diminished his mental and physical faculties to the point where he would not be able to resume his duties.

Now as I write this piece, I have just received word that Dr. Kennedy has passed away. It is with a heavy heart and a bit of shock that I continue this piece, but I began this venture with the intention of honoring Dr. Kennedy — and so I shall.

We knew for some time that Dr. Kennedy was in a seriously debilitated condition, so we had some time to absorb this shock, yet time alone is never enough.

Rather than give a biography of Dr. Kennedy, I would rather discuss his accomplishments, and how his ministry has impacted my own life.

I'm not sure when I first heard of Dr. Kennedy, but I do vividly remember that I first saw his T.V. program early in 1999. At that time he was urging those in his audience to be vigilant about the Y2K phenomenon, that they should regard it as more than just another periodic scare. Before his name became familiar to me, I referred to him as the Y2K guy when discussing his broadcast with my wife. Before long, it became the favorite religious program of the several we watched on a regular basis.

My wife and I had attended a reformed church, and the thing I liked right off the bat about Kennedy, was that his sermons were relevant in addressing the current cultural issues. He exemplified the reformed tradition, that Christ is Lord over all of life. Besides the elaborate and beautiful arrangements of traditional hymns, and his timely motivating sermons, the program always made an evangelical appeal to the lost, and presented a documentary about some vital cultural issue.

Dr. Kennedy often received letters from his viewing audience, containing personal testimonials and notes thanking him for his tireless efforts for the kingdom of God. I never wrote Dr. Kennedy personally, and now wish I had. But, I still want to share how he impacted my life.

After one sermon shortly after I began watching his show, Dr. Kennedy said to his viewing audience: "Some of you need to run for public office; some of you need to write letters to the editor." It was as if Kennedy was speaking to me personally. I certainly took him that way. I decided I would try both. I have to admit the political angle didn't turn out as expected, but the writing aspect did bloom into a passion. In fact Dr. Kennedy had a large hand in the fact that you are reading this piece about him today. In my late teens I had a burning desire to move ahead with the things of God, but over time I lost this youthful zeal. I spent most of my 20's and 30's sitting on my hands, but Kennedy helped renew my life with that conviction and zeal.

Kennedy's influences extended well beyond his own sermons and the auxiliary ministries that grew out of his initial calling. Kennedy introduced us to so many other influential Christians through the books and audio/visual materials he endorsed. His documentary segments inspired us to look into certain issues more closely.

What I liked best about Dr. Kennedy was his strong emphasis on the cultural mandate, and the need for the Christian worldview to be a bridge spanning our entire social milieu. While many today bemoan Christian involvement in the public square, Kennedy taught that social and political activism are the Christian's inherent duty.

Too many influential personalities today, are urging people to compartmentalize between their spiritual and social lives. All that has brought about a culture increasingly hostile to Christianity and apathetic toward the very things bringing great harm to society. Kennedy was a watchman on the wall, ever vigilant, sounding the clarion call, warning us against these dangerous trends.

It is reasonable for us to ponder the question of who will (or can) replace the small handful of committed visionaries, that by God's grace, are given to us sparingly in each generation. Over the past five years we have lost such Christian luminaries as Henry Morris, Carl Henry, Adrian Rogers, Jerry Falwell and Billy Bright. Add to that list an ailing Billy Graham, other aging evangelicals, and now Dr. Kennedy. It is easy for the evangelical community to ask who will lead us now, who will replace these fallen stalwarts?

Remember what Jesus said to the religious self-righteous of his day, when they complained about the people who praised and worshiped him. He said that God could raise up the very stones and cause them to worship. God will call new believers to meet the growing challenges of the day. As for Dr. Kennedy, he already had appointed faithful believers to carry on with his vision.

I will miss Dr. Kennedy dearly, yet I will continue to be inspired by his fine example and strong convictions.

Dr D. James Kennedy Funeral Celebrates Legacy

Print Email


A statement from Rev. Billy Graham was also read: “He was a bold proclaimer of the Gospel and a strengthening of moral and spiritual values in the American life.”

Rev. John Sorenson, Executive Vice-President of Evangelism Explosion International, declared: “He practiced what he preached, he loved sharing the Gospel of Christ with people.”

Rev. Mark Creech declared: “No one in our time has probably understood with greater depth, conveyed with greater passion, or equipped the church with greater skill, to fulfill its two-fold mission – the Cultural Mandate (that Christians are to bring God's truth to bear upon every area of human society) and The Great Commission – than Dr. Kennedy.”

Frank Wright, President of the National Religious Broadcasters, paid tribute to Dr Kennedy's preaching “The full counsel of God.”

Allan Chambers, President of Exodus International said: “Dr Kennedy's strong stand on social and moral issues elevated and compelled public debate. He was an unwavering defender of the Faith, a passionate advocate for truth, a visionary committed to advancing the Gospel of Jesus Christ and a good friend.”

Wendy Wright, of Concerned Women for America, declared: “We honour his legacy of faithfulness to Christ and commitment to fulfilling the Great Commission.”

Rev. Ronald Siegenthaler, CRPC Executive Minister, pledged: “We will worship the Saviour he faithfully served for so many years, and we will exalt the Gospel of free grace through faith alone in the Lord Jesus Christ – a message which he proclaimed from this pulpit and to the nations of the world.”

In the keynote message, Dr James Dobson, Founder and Chairman of Focus on the Family, declared: “We have a wonderful heritage in the Christian Faith, but we lost one of the best of these men of Faith last week. When a great oak tree falls, many of us lesser creatures lose a place of shelter and security in its branches. It causes me to wonder, who will be there to carry the banner when this general of leaders is gone? I pray that the Lord will anoint another generation of Jim Kennedys - courageous men and women who will never waver one inch in the defence of righteousness. May God help the younger generation carry on the work that D. James Kennedy did so ably for more than half a century.”

The body of Dr Kennedy was laid to rest Friday 14 September at a private internment ceremony.

Dr. Michael Milton Named President of D. James Kennedy Institute
Theologian, author and singer/songwriter Dr. Michael Milton has been named President and Sr. Fellow of the newly founded D. James Kennedy Institute for Christianity and Culture (DJK Institute), established in honor of the beloved pastor and teacher, who taught the life-changing Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world, reports McCain & Co. Public Relations.

The announcement was made by Jennifer Kennedy Cassidy, daughter of the late Dr. D. James Kennedy, at the launch of the second edition of Dr. Milton's book, Silent No More, at the Reagan Ranch Center in Santa Barbara, Calif.



The vision of the DJK Institute is to continue the Christ-centered legacy of Dr. D. James Kennedy by declaring the biblical message of Jesus Christ and providing evangelistic outreach through popular and scholarly works in books, music, and missions. In addition to the ministry of evangelism and education, the DJK Institute will also serve as a "think tank" for faith and culture and will provide scholarships to support a new generation of pastors.

Dr. Milton, the former Chancellor/CEO of Reformed Theological Seminary, is the founder and current president and CEO of Faith for Living, Inc. Dr. Milton, a Presbyterian minister (PCA) was in the first graduating class of Knox Theological Seminary, which was founded by Dr. D. James Kennedy. Dr. Milton was the first recipient of the annual preaching prize at Knox, and also the prize in systematic theology. He also was the first Knox Seminary pastoral intern and assistant to Dr. D. James Kennedy.

"The Institute is literally a dream come true," Milton says. "I dreamed that the legacy of my late, great mentor, Dr. Kennedy, needed to be continued. When I awoke, I began writing down my vision for an institute that would be not only a 'think tank' for faith and culture, but a fellows program to help perpetuate the optimistic Kingdom-minded vision of D. James Kennedy in the lives and ministries of future pastors. I brought this dream to Mrs. Kennedy and his daughter, Jennifer. Together we dedicated it to the Lord in prayer."

"I am so honored that the Kennedy family has asked me to lead the D. James Kennedy Institute, and I am delighted to now share this vision with others," Milton continues.

The announcement follows news in September from Truth In Action Ministries that Dr. Milton has been tapped as teaching pastor of Truth That Transforms with Dr. Michael Milton, a television ministry which launched in 1974 as The Coral Ridge Hour with Dr. D. James Kennedy.

The television ministry, which reached a peak audience of 3 million viewers in 200 countries during its tenure, has continued with Dr. Kennedy's messages since he passed away in 2007.



Truth That Transforms with Dr. Michael Milton airs at 9 p.m. C.T. Sundays on the NRB Network, immediately following Kennedy Classics, featuring the sermons of Dr. D. James Kennedy. Kennedy Classics also airs on The Church Channel on Sundays at 9 a.m. C.T. Both shows are hosted by Dr. Jerry Newcombe and Jennifer Kennedy Cassidy.

Truth in Action Ministries, which changed its name in 2011 from Coral Ridge Ministries, was founded by Dr. D. James Kennedy, the founder of Evangelism Explosion International, Knox Theological Seminary, Coral Ridge Ministries and Westminster Academy in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

About Truth in Action and Truth That Transforms:

Inspired by the vision of Dr. D. James Kennedy, Truth In Action Ministries educates, motivates, and activates believers to see the world in light of God's truth - and transform their culture for Christ.

Truth That Transforms with Dr. Michael Milton is the broadcast ministry of Truth In Action, airing on the NRB Network and select radio stations.

For more information, visit truthinaction.org.

About Dr. Michael Milton:

Dr. Michael Milton is the founder and current President and CEO of Faith for Living, Inc. and the teaching pastor of the Truth That Transforms with Dr. Michael Milton TV program on the NRB Network. Formerly the Chancellor and CEO of Reformed Theological Seminary (RTS), Milton is an ordained Presbyterian (PCA) pastor as well as a professor. Milton earned his Ph.D. in theology from The University of Wales and holds multiple degrees from such respected institutions as Knox Theological Seminary and MidAmerica Nazarene University, and is a graduate of historic national defense institutions such as the Eisenhower Command and General Staff College and the Defense Language Institute. Milton's unique, and yet pastoral, insights and commentaries on faith and culture have been warmly received, as his columns have appeared in newspapers and publications across the nation and around the world.

The multi-talented pastor, author and musician has received rave reviews for his current CD, Through the Open Door. Christianitytoday.com, who has compared Milton to Neil Young, Steve Curtis Chapman and Dan Fogelberg, calls the music, "musically opulent and emotionally stirring."

Milton has released four CDs, 16 books and writes for numerous popular and scholarly periodicals. He is a faculty member of Intercollegiate Studies Institute and a contributing writer for The Center for Vision and Values. He was appointed to the College of Military Preachers, serves as a Chaplain in the U.S. Army Reserve and is an instructor at the Armed Forces Chaplain School. But anyone who has listened to his music can attest that "stuffy" is not a word that is found in his vocabulary. Much like his friend and sometimes musical collaborator, legendary Christian singer/songwriter Michael Card ("El Shaddai"), Milton has an uncanny ability to unpack complex theological concepts into everyday language that makes them both memorable and accessible.

Milton's current book releases include Silent No More from Tanglewood Publishing in the U.S. and Evangelical Press in the U.K., Songs in the Night: How God Transforms Our Pain to Praise from P&R Publishing Co., and the third edition of What God Starts, God Completes: Help and Hope for Hurting People by Christian Focus Publications.

“Now, I know that someday I am going to come to what some people will say is the end of this life. They will probably put me in a box and roll me right down here in front of the church, and some people will gather around, and a few people will cry. But I have told them not to do that because I don't want them to cry. I want them to begin the service with the Doxology and end with the Hallelujah chorus, because I am not going to be there, and I am not going to be dead. I will be more alive than I have ever been in my life, and I will be looking down upon you poor people who are still in the land of dying and have not yet joined me in the land of the living. And I will be alive forevermore, in greater health and vitality and joy than ever, ever, I or anyone has known before.” D. James Kennedy

Who is D. James Kennedy?

D. James Kennedy (1930 –2007) was an American pastor, evangelist, and Christian broadcaster. He founded the Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where he was senior pastor from 1960 until his death in 2007.

Kennedy also founded Evangelism Explosion International, Coral Ridge Ministries, the Westminster Academy in Ft. Lauderdale, the Knox Theological Seminary, and the Center for Reclaiming America for Christ, a socially conservative political group.

In 1974, he began Coral Ridge Ministries, which produced his weekly religious television program, The Coral Ridge Hour, carried on various networks and syndicated on numerous other stations with a peak audience of three million viewers in 200 countries.

The Coral Ridge Hour continues to air widely as does the daily radio program, Truths That Transform, which airs on radio stations in the United States. Current and archived versions of both programs are available on the Coral Ridge Ministries website. During his lifetime, Coral Ridge Ministries grew to a US$37-million-a-year non-profit corporation with an audience of 3.5 million.

In 2006, the National Religious Broadcasters association inducted Kennedy into its Hall of Fame. As a result of a heart attack from which he never fully recovered, Kennedy last preached at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church later that year, on December 24, 2006. His retirement was officially announced at the church on August 26, 2007, and he died in his home ten days later.

Personal information and career

D. James Kennedy was born in Augusta, Georgia, and moved with his parents to Chicago, Illinois, during his childhood. His father was a glass salesman, and his parents were Methodists. Kennedy joined the Boy Scouts. He later moved with his family to Tampa, Florida, where in 1948 he graduated from Henry B. Plant High School and began studying English at the University of Tampa.

After two years he dropped out of college, began working as a dance instructor at the Arthur Murray Dance Studio in Tampa, and later won a first prize in a nationwide dance contest. On August 25, 1956, he married Anne Lewis, whom he had met while giving her dance lessons at Arthur Murray. They had one daughter, Jennifer, born in 1962.

Education

Kennedy became a Christian in 1953 after hearing a radio preacher present the Gospel, which Kennedy later said he had never heard up to that point. In December 1955, Kennedy decided to quit his Arthur Murray job to enter the ministry. He resumed his studies at the University of Tampa (graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in 1958) and began preaching at the small Bethel Presbyterian Church in nearby Clearwater, Florida.

The following year, Kennedy entered Columbia Theological Seminary, receiving a Master of Divinity degree.[3] After his ordination in 1959, Kennedy became the pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church, where he remained until his death. In the 1970s he earned a Master of Theology summa cum laude from the Chicago Graduate School of Theology, and in 1979 a doctorate in religious education from New York University.

His doctoral dissertation was on the history of an evangelism program he founded. Kennedy said that he earned a Ph D. "to dispel the idea there is an inconsistency between evangelism and education...evangelical ministers [need] to be thoroughly educated and equipped to meet on equal terms anyone with whom they come in contact".

Ministry and theology

Initially ordained in 1959 by the Presbyterian Church in the United States, Kennedy later became an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America, after he and his church left the PCUS in 1978. Espousing a traditional Calvinist theology, Kennedy's theological works include Why I Believe, What If Jesus Had Never Been Born, Skeptics Answered, and Truths That Transform. In 1971, he founded the Westminster Academy in Ft. Lauderdale and, in 1989, Knox Theological Seminary.


Kennedy was a conservative evangelical minister who was often involved in political activities within the Christian right. He wrote What if America Were a Christian Nation Again? and frequently preached messages arguing that the United States was founded as a Christian nation. Kennedy started the Center for Christian Statesmanship, an evangelical ministry on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.

The Center, closed in 2007 by Coral Ridge Ministries but quickly reopened under the auspices of Evangelism Explosion International, awards a "Distinguished Christian Statesman Award" annually to high profile Christian political leaders. Award recipients include Tom DeLay, Sam Brownback, and John Ashcroft. He was called by critics a leader of the Dominionism movement.

Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

Kennedy founded the Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida in 1960. Beginning with 45 persons attending a typical Sunday service, it became the fastest-growing Presbyterian church in the U.S. in the 1960s and had 1,366 members by 1968. Kennedy developed the Evangelism Explosion ("EE") method of evangelism in the 1960s, which emphasizes the training of church laypeople to share their faith by home visitation in the community.

In 1978, Kennedy began the weekly Coral Ridge Hour on national television, which at its peak had a weekly audience of three million viewers in 200 countries and was aired on more than 400 stations and four cable networks, including the Trinity Broadcasting Network, The Inspiration Network (INSP) and the NRB Network, as well as broadcast to more than 150 countries on the Armed Forces Network. By the 1980s, the church's membership had grown to almost 10,000 persons. As of 2009, the church has 2,200 members and weekly attendance averages 1,800 persons.

Retirement and death

On the evening of December 28, 2006, Kennedy experienced prolonged ventricular tachycardia at his Ft. Lauderdale home, leading to cardiac arrest which deprived his brain of adequate oxygen for six to eight minutes. As a result, he sustained a loss of short-term memory and speech impairment. Despite several months of rehabilitation and convalescence, he was unable to resume preaching and his retirement was announced on Sunday, August 26, 2007, at the Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church by his daughter, Jennifer Kennedy Cassidy.

In a statement following news of Kennedy's retirement, the church announced the development of the D. James Kennedy Legacy website in tribute to the life of the Christian evangelist.

Kennedy died in his sleep at home in the early morning hours of September 5, 2007. The White House issued a statement the following day, saying that U.S. President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush were "deeply saddened" by Kennedy's death, calling the Florida-based televangelist and author "a man of great vision, faith, and integrity ... Dr. Kennedy's message of love and hope inspired millions through the institutions he founded...". Kennedy is buried at Lauderdale Memorial Park Cemetery in Ft. Lauderdale.

In December 1955, Kennedy decided to quit his Arthur Murray job to enter the ministry. He resumed his studies at the University of Tampa (graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in 1958) and began preaching at the small Bethel Presbyterian Church in nearby Clearwater, Florida.

The following year, Kennedy entered Columbia Theological Seminary, receiving a Master of Divinity degree.[3] After his ordination in 1959, Kennedy became the pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church, where he remained until his death. In the 1970s he earned a Master of Theology summa cum laude from the Chicago Graduate School of Theology, and in 1979 a doctorate in religious education from New York University.

His doctoral dissertation was on the history of an evangelism program he founded. Kennedy said that he earned a Ph D. "to dispel the idea there is an inconsistency between evangelism and education...evangelical ministers [need] to be thoroughly educated and equipped to meet on equal terms anyone with whom they come in contact".

Ministry and theology

Initially ordained in 1959 by the Presbyterian Church in the United States, Kennedy later became an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America, after he and his church left the PCUS in 1978. Espousing a traditional Calvinist theology, Kennedy's theological works include Why I Believe, What If Jesus Had Never Been Born, Skeptics Answered, and Truths That Transform. In 1971, he founded the Westminster Academy in Ft. Lauderdale and, in 1989, Knox Theological Seminary.


Kennedy was a conservative evangelical minister who was often involved in political activities within the Christian right. He wrote What if America Were a Christian Nation Again? and frequently preached messages arguing that the United States was founded as a Christian nation. Kennedy started the Center for Christian Statesmanship, an evangelical ministry on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.

The Center, closed in 2007 by Coral Ridge Ministries but quickly reopened under the auspices of Evangelism Explosion International, awards a "Distinguished Christian Statesman Award" annually to high profile Christian political leaders. Award recipients include Tom DeLay, Sam Brownback, and John Ashcroft. He was called by critics a leader of the Dominionism movement.

Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

Kennedy founded the Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida in 1960. Beginning with 45 persons attending a typical Sunday service, it became the fastest-growing Presbyterian church in the U.S. in the 1960s and had 1,366 members by 1968. Kennedy developed the Evangelism Explosion ("EE") method of evangelism in the 1960s, which emphasizes the training of church laypeople to share their faith by home visitation in the community.

In 1978, Kennedy began the weekly Coral Ridge Hour on national television, which at its peak had a weekly audience of three million viewers in 200 countries and was aired on more than 400 stations and four cable networks, including the Trinity Broadcasting Network, The Inspiration Network (INSP) and the NRB Network, as well as broadcast to more than 150 countries on the Armed Forces Network. By the 1980s, the church's membership had grown to almost 10,000 persons. As of 2009, the church has 2,200 members and weekly attendance averages 1,800 persons.

Retirement and death

On the evening of December 28, 2006, Kennedy experienced prolonged ventricular tachycardia at his Ft. Lauderdale home, leading to cardiac arrest which deprived his brain of adequate oxygen for six to eight minutes. As a result, he sustained a loss of short-term memory and speech impairment. Despite several months of rehabilitation and convalescence, he was unable to resume preaching and his retirement was announced on Sunday, August 26, 2007, at the Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church by his daughter, Jennifer Kennedy Cassidy.

In a statement following news of Kennedy's retirement, the church announced the development of the D. James Kennedy Legacy website in tribute to the life of the Christian evangelist.

Kennedy died in his sleep at home in the early morning hours of September 5, 2007. The White House issued a statement the following day, saying that U.S. President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush were "deeply saddened" by Kennedy's death, calling the Florida-based televangelist and author "a man of great vision, faith, and integrity ... Dr. Kennedy's message of love and hope inspired millions through the institutions he founded...". Kennedy is buried at Lauderdale Memorial Park Cemetery in Ft. Lauderdale.

New home for Kennedy Center for Christian Statesmanship

"This new facility will help form Christian statesman, as members and staff access a library of 2000 volumes drawn from Dr. Kennedy's personal collection and sermons preached during his lifetime.

Fort Lauderdale, Florida (PRWEB) March 20, 2013

The D. James Kennedy Center for Christian Statesmanship, a Christian ministry to legislators, staffers, and interns on Capitol Hill, has acquired a permanent home two blocks from the U.S. Capitol building.

The new facility, a stately three-story row house built in 1890, will be the site of ministry activity and house the new D. James Kennedy Library on Capitol Hill. Renovations are already underway on the spacious structure in preparation for the grand opening in June.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have the new center for ministry so close to where lawmakers and their staff work,” said Dr. John B. Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, the parent organization of the Center for Christian Statesmanship. “This elegant building will be an enormous asset to our outreach on Capitol Hill.”

Dr. Sorensen noted that the new D. James Kennedy Library “will help form Christian statesmen, as Members and staff access a library of some 2,000 volumes drawn from Dr. Kennedy's personal collection, as well as about 2,000 sermons he preached during his lifetime.”

Founded in 1995 by the late D. James Kennedy, a minister, author, and evangelical leader, the Center for Christian Statesmanship has impacted thousands of lives by bringing a gospel witness, Christian discipleship, and a vision for Christian statesmanship to leaders in Washington.

The Center's Executive Director George Roller leads a wide range of ministry activities, including “Politics and Principle Luncheons” at which Christian Members of Congress share their faith testimony; Bible studies for legislators, staffers and interns; special intern events, such as backyard barbecues, where hundreds of interns gather in a Christian setting; and special lectures where key Christian leaders and thinkers share a Christian witness to the Capitol Hill community.

“The Center does not do any sort of political action,” said Dr. Sorensen, leader of Evangelism Explosion which saw nearly eight million professions of faith in Christ worldwide in 2012. “We simply minister to Members of Congress, their staff, and those that come and serve as interns on Capitol Hill. It is our hope and prayer to see a dramatic expansion of the Center's outreach with this wonderful new facility.”

September 25, 2007
I was making decisions at age 18. One was which church I should call home. Dr. Kennedy's EE team came to my house and changed my life. That was in 1985. As a member of Coral Rigde I was able to serve God in several capacities using my unique gifts and talents including being a short term missionary to Peru at age 19. Moving to Brooklyn and joining another large church was a disappointing experience. When people defended that church's lack of fellowship due to the size I always brought up how Dr. Kennedy's church was larger and still maintained fellowship and ministry opportunities for spiritual growth and edification of the flock. He was truly a blessed leader who opened his church doors to all. He was true to the Word of God. He set the bar high for a standard of how a church should be, large or small.
September 24, 2007
It is with deepest sympathy to Anne and Jennifer on the passing of Dr. D. James Kennedy. I know you miss him a lot. I learned a lot from his EE Training. I am so grateful and blessed to have a book of his and my boyfriend has cd's, dvd's that I can continue learning from

God Bless you both
joyce M. Thompson
September 21, 2007
I enjoyed listening to Dr. Kennedy. We will miss him.
September 21, 2007
Dr. Kennedy was a truly brilliant servant of the lord. My Mother and Father were members of Coral Ridge years before it had a "home". I was baptised as an infant by Dr. Kennedy. My daughter who is now 16 was batised as an infant by him as well. I am now 35. His words, knowledge, and heart were a true gift to the world and will be cherished by myself and countless others forever. He WILL be missed.
September 20, 2007
Dr Kennedy baptized my daughter over sixteen years ago. I attended his church many times when I lived in Ft. Lauderdale. Ater we moved away, I continued to watch The Coral Ridge Hour on Sundays. He was a remarkable man and a true man of God! He will be greatly missed!!!
September 19, 2007
Rev. Kennedy has touched the lives of some many people young and old black and white. He ran a good race and now he can hear the master say "well done my good and faithful servant well-done. My love is extended to his family both home and church.
September 18, 2007
I watched Dr. Kennedy on TV. He was a great inspiration to many,but now he is in the loving arms of our Savior which much better. To be absent from The body and in the presence of God Almighty
September 17, 2007
I would like to thank God for the Grace Rev. Kennedy had to faithfully run his race, and to be an example to those of us who remain and continue the 'good fight'. May God grant comfort to his family.
September 17, 2007
I walked into Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church for the only time in my life as a very new Christian on Mother's Day in the late 1970's and was privileged to hear Dr. Kennedy deliver what was to be a classic sermon entitled "America at the Brink". We all knew or at least sensed that his sermon that day was something special. I have followed his life and ministry ever since. In addition to being a full-time practicing attorney, I also attended seminary years later and have been a teaching pastor at our church here in Scottsdale, Arizona, for several years. My zeal to preach God's word was to a great extent fueled in those early days by the passion and fervor I saw in Dr. Kennedy. As R.C. Sproul noted at the passing a few years ago of James M. Boice: "One of the great charioteers of Israel has fallen". My heart felt the same way last week when we heard of the home going of Dr. Kennedy.
To God alone be the glory! We will pray for comfort for his immediate family and for all of you at Coral Ridge.
Most affectionately yours in Christ,
John Politan, on behalf of myself, my wife Terri, and many of your brothers and sisters in Christ at Scottsdale Bible Church, Scottsdale, Arizona
September 17, 2007
mr. kennedy i saw the documentary about your life and ministry. it has inspired me to be a better christian. you are a great man, see you in paradise
September 17, 2007
I never met Dr. Kennedy, but he stood up for Christ decades before the evangelical movement gained its recent momemtum. In other words, he was unabashedly Christian at a time when Christian wasn't cool. Thanks for being such an example on how to live a truly Christ-like life.
September 16, 2007
You are in a Far, far better place, Faithful servant! You will be forever missed.
September 16, 2007

September 15, 2007
We are saddened by the passing of a great man of God,Dr. Kennedy. He preached the word of God and told people what they needed to hear,not necessarily what they wanted to hear. He preached the truth and tried to bring people to their senses. We watched him every Sunday and enjoyed him so much. There will never be anyone to fill his shoes. God bless his family. Our prayers are with you at this time. We will miss him very much.
September 15, 2007

September 14, 2007
Enjoying a welcome break from dailey chores, I would often find myself mesmerized, listening to his sermons.
September 14, 2007
As a military member serving aboard a ship, I only learned of Dr. Kennedy's passing today. I am deeply grieved personally and for his family. He was a warm and familiar voice that constantly reminded me "Everything's Gonna Be OK". No matter where I have been stationed or deployed, Dr. Kennedy was always there on Armed Forces TV and I have one of his books on my desk on the ship. I just got out of the hospital. Oddly, I was hospitalized for a suspected heart attack on September 5th - the day he died. I am fine now...and so is he. Though I never met him, I hope to meet him in the great beyond.
September 13, 2007
Quite grateful Dr. Kennedy allowed God to use him to advance His Kingdom.
September 13, 2007
It is bittersweet to lose a loved one, but yet we will meet our loved ones again someday when Christ calls us home. God Be with you always and May He keep you in the Palm of His hand.
September 13, 2007
Praise God for Dr. Kennedy's ministry. I pray that more pastors in America would emulate his example.
September 13, 2007
We would like to specially thank Dr. Kennedy for his ministries, he will always be remembered for his great inspiration and love of the Gospel. It was a great joy to know Dr. Kennedy; he always had a great sense of humor. Our sympathy and gratitude goes toward Mrs. Kennedy, Jennifer, and family for being part of his great commission. God be with you always and give you comfort through so many memories you had built together.
Much Love,
September 13, 2007
Mrs. Kennedy and Jennifer: I am grateful that I am a product of Evangelism Explosion by way of Max Tharpe sharing the gospel with me. I also had the distinct honor of going out on "questionaires" with Doctor Kennedy one evening. We were scheduled to go to a home for a visit, but the family was not home so, true to his word, he set the example and we went to the streets to talk to people. What a blessing and privilege to have been a part of that experience.
Thank you for sharing him with all of us for so many years.
May the peace of Christ be with you.

Dr. Kennedy was a true man of God, and he will be so missed. He told the truth about the issues and revealed things in our culture which needed to be exposed for what they are. I pray that someone will take up his torch and go on with his valuable lessons. We are ALL sinners and not deserving of heaven, unless we accept Jesus Christ by faith. Dr. Kennedy got that message across so well.

September 13, 2007
I haven't watched TV much this week and was saddened this morning to learn of Dr. Kennedy's death on, of all days, my birthday. He did such wonderful things for G-d and he will be truly missed.
September 13, 2007
Dr. Kennedy was a great man of God. He personally touched my life when he shared the gospel in 1982 on his TV program as he always faithfully did and I received the gift of eternal life that Jesus offers to all who will turn from their sins and turn to Him. When I learned how to share my faith in Evangelism Explosion, I was hooked and have been involved ever since. My husband came to know the Lord through Evangelism Explosion. I know that Jesus is telling Dr. Kennedy, "Well done my good and faithful servant." I know that Dr. Kennedy is dancing with the angels in heaven. How thankful I am for His life and his ministry all these years. He has left a legacy and will be remembered for many many years to come. Anne, you are a special lady and have always been an inspiration to many by your life as a helpmeet to your husband. You are deeply loved and appreciated. May God comfort you as you experience your loss.
September 12, 2007
MAMA WENT HOME WITH JESUS ON JULY 20, AND I DIDN'T START MY GRIEVING UNTIL I RECEIVED WORD OF MY BELOVED TV PASTOR LEAVING US AS WELL. I HAVEN'T QUIT CRYING SINCE.

All of us now feel great sorrow. But let’s be sure we know the sorrow is for ourselves, for the loss that we now feel. But let us realize that Dr. Kennedy has just gone through a door from this life to that other life that God promised us, that life that is eternal, where no one is old, where there’s no pain or sorrow, and where Dr. Kennedy is now the smiling and loving man we all remember when he was with us. I believe Dr. Kennedy is now looking back on us, he’s hearing and seeing us all now. He’s wanting us to be happy in knowing that one day, we will all be together again.
September 12, 2007
Dr. Kennedy touched many, many lives. He was truly a man of
God. I extend my deepest condolences to the family but please be encouraged...Please remember: Dr. Kennedy is 'absent from the body but he's present with the LORD.'
September 12, 2007
A humble man who talked the talk and walked the walk; who truely loved our Lord, a giant among men.

Thank you, Lord, for the life and ministry of Dr. Kennedy. His vision changed my life and millions of others. His legacy will continue through many generations, as those trained in EE share the wonderful message of salvation through faith in Christ.
September 12, 2007
I had the privilege of being raised in a Christian family and in the ministries of CRPC. Over the years, no matter what church I have visited and heard the invocation "THIS IS THE DAY THAT THE LORD HAS MADE, LET US REJOICE AND BE GLAD IN IT!" - I always, always hear the resounding voice of Dr. Kennedy.

I'm so sorry for your loss, Mrs. Kennedy, Jennifer and Chip. My love and prayers are with you.

September 12, 2007
Dr. James Kennedy was a prince among men. A truly godly man who used his intellectual and spiritual gifts to evangelize and challenge our sad culture. His love of Jesus Christ and brave stances upholding godliness in our increasingly ungodly culture was so encouraging to this pastor's wife. I thank God for his faithfulness and wonderful example. He ran his race well!!

Our prayers are with you at this time.
September 11, 2007
My heart goes out to the family and friends of this wonderful man. I was shocked to learn of his death on the internet from my hometown newspaper, The Elmira Star-Gazette in Elmira, NY. I have visited Coral Ridge a couple of times and was impressed by the friendly people there. I did not get to hear Rev. Kennedy on my first visit, however I did enjoy the sermon and was fortunate to get back for a second visit and did get to hear Rev. Kennedy preach on that visit. Rev. Kennedy's sermons have been a blessing to me and I pray that God will bless his family and friends. Truly we have lost a great preacher!
September 11, 2007
The Lord has taken one of His faithful servants home. Who will take his place? Let us hope the man is as valiant and faithful as Dr. Kennedy. We may continue the fight without the man, but we will still have his influence for eternity.
September 11, 2007
The work of Jim and Anne Kennedy shaped who I have become as a church musician. I owe a great debt to this great man. But the thing I will remember most about Dr. Kennedy is that I KNEW always how truly glad he was to see me (as I was him) whenever I went back to Ft. Lauderdale. He was my first full time boss, but he was also my pastor and my friend.
September 11, 2007
May God Truly Bless him as he has all of us who listened to him each week.
He will be missed by all.
September 10, 2007
God bless Dr. Kennedy's memory and Ann & Jennifer. I was a member when I lived in Ft. Lauderdale in the 80's and loved the time spent at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church.
September 10, 2007
In 1964 when I was a young child, Dr. Kennedy came to my home and witnessed to my mom and she accepted Christ. Dr. Kennedy met with my dad several times and he accepted Christ. I am blessed to have grown up in a Christian home and to have been under Dr. Kennedy's teaching for many years.

please accept our sympathy.
September 10, 2007
Dear Anne and Jennifer,
The happiest days of my life were spent at Coral Ridge, where I was one of so many who were saved, and blessed by Jim's ministry.
I thank the Lord that I had the blessing of going out on visitation with Jim and learning about our Savior from Him. I look forward to that glorious day when I will renew my friendship with that dear man.
May God continue to bless you and give you His peace.
With much love,

September 10, 2007
I am so sad that Dr. Kennedy's voice will not be heard again except in my memories. Although I was a seasonal visitor, Dr. Kennedy made a great impression on me with each sermon. I also had the pleasure of meeting He and His lovely wife in 2003.

My heartfelt condolences to Mrs. Kennedy and Family.

I was blessed to be able to watch Dr. Kennedy on Christian TV from Clearwater when I lived in Florida for 3 years back in the 80's. I always made sure that I was home for his tv program. After I returned to Canada I was also able to get to watch the program for a few years when we were getting TBN.

My sympathy goes out to his family because there is always a loss in losing someone so special like a husband and father.

I know that we will be able to see Dr Kennedy again one day in Heaven.
September 10, 2007
To the Kennedy Family:
My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time. However, I praise God for Dr. Kennedy and his legacy. He was truly a man of God who bore much fruit and I credit him in assisting me to grow in Christ. I was saddened to learn of his demise, but at the same time my heart is glad. I know where he is. He is with the Lord and he can now pity us all while he has found rest in the "land of the living."
September 10, 2007
Dr. Kennedy will be sorely missed. I for one gained so much comfort from his sermons. I loved it that he never tired of speaking out on moral issue that some would not speak out on. I know he is with Jesus.
September 10, 2007
To the family of Dr. Kennedy.
I will miss Dr. Kennedy's sermons.
My heartfelt sympathies on you loss.
September 10, 2007
To: Rev. Kennedy's family, friends and congregation. My heart and sympathy is with each of you. I didn't know the "Great man of God" personally, but I watched him often on TV. And I know he's in heaven now, still watching over each and every one of us. He will be missed. As a Born Again Christian I will see him again.
September 10, 2007
I am so sorry to hear of Dr Kennedy's passing. But I know he is in a much better place now. He was a remarkble man and a true man of God. My husband and I enjoyed listening to him, reading his book and watching him on TV. I pray that someone else will pick up the mantle he carried and continue on. God Bless his family and may they find peace and rest in knowing he is with the Lord.
September 10, 2007
My faith was reinforced during rough times with "Why I Believe" and "Skeptics Answered".
I thank God for intelligent people like Dr. Kennedy who can help us defend our faith with logic and truth.
September 10, 2007
Dr.Kennedy:
I became more politically active because of you - thank you - you will be missed.
September 10, 2007
I am weeping in your loss, and rejoiceing in his gain. Thanking Dr Kennedy for his steadfast preaching. Well done good and faithful servant.
September 10, 2007
I want to express my appreciation and admiration to Dr. D. James Kennedy, a man of unwavering commitment to the cause of Christ. His influnence in the the church, the culture and the world have been great. Only God knows how many many lives have been touched through his life and ministry. He will be missed.
Sincerely in Christ,
Jeff Watros
September 10, 2007
Dr. Kennedy was a brave man who encouraged me to stand up for Christian rights. He is one of the reasons I am a Christian today and I am forever greatful. His TV broadcast helped me get through a very difficult period in my life. Thank you for your good and faithful service.
September 10, 2007
A man of God that will greatly missed. He preached in a way that all people could understand. The saints of Heaven rejoiced when Brother James entered into Heaven last week. May God comfort the family and his church congregation.
September 10, 2007
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
September 10, 2007
I BECAME A CHRISTIAN IN 1972.Dr. Kennedys broadcast and books gave mw a deeper sense in Gods word. Tonight,some 37 years later, before bed, I will read a book, Pray for his family...Welcome home......
September 10, 2007
What a treat it was for me in 1979 to be channel-surfing and come across D. James Kennedy! A mainline preacher who believed the bible...I couldn't believe it!
He was quoting, without notes, the entire Edgar Allen Poe novel, "The Raven". I was mesmerized.
I have been watching ever since.
I thought about "The Raven" many times since then, and always wanted to hear that sermon again, but never did - until Jan. '06 - when DJK and I sat together at lunch during CRPC's Music Explosion. He explained the entire sermon to me - some 25 years later.
After that lunch, when I would pass him in the hall at CRPC, I would jokingly call to him, "Quoth the Raven.....!!!!!" and he would smile, and respond "NEVERMORE!!!" in that rich, baritone voice.
Oh, man, it gives me shivers just thinking about it. I learned so much from him the past 28 years. I feel like I've lost a family member.
September 09, 2007
Truly a man of God, and great Christian leader.. We all have been influenced by him.
September 09, 2007
To the family of D. James Kennedy may you find comfort in God's words at John 28 and 29 that read "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." May you draw close to God (Exodus 6:3; Psalm 83:18) in prayer, and the Bible promises that "he himself will sustain you."---Psalm 55:22
September 09, 2007
thamk you for serving the lord
September 09, 2007
SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT YOU DEATH
WE LOVED TO WATCH YOU & WE ARE GONING TO MISS YOU
September 09, 2007
THANK YOU DR. KENNEDY FOR BRINGING US TO CHRIST AND SALVATION
REST IN THE GLORY OF THE LORD
September 09, 2007
I am very sorry for your loss. I have experienced losses both anticipated and unexpected. When I was fifteen years old in my first year in high school, my mother died of melanoma at age 54 on Monday, December 6, 2004; we were anticipating the loss. As with me, I am sure your loss is emotionally stressful for you and your family.

Your grief may ebb and flow. It has been said that each of us has this well deep inside of us that can be filled to the brim with grief. Every time we cry, we empty out some of the well. But the well fills again. The level of sorrow in your well may lessen as time passes, but it will never run dry. There will always be birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, and those days when the well seems to fill to its brim again. Allow yourself time to remember and mourn. It is part of your healing. Grief is a continuing journey.
September 09, 2007
Dr Kennedy was such a positive spiritual influence in my life..I appreciate his stand and staunch advocacy for Christian morals in a world so determined to destroy these...His Faith Partners Bible is a part of my life...Heaven has just received a most treasured soul !!! Thank God his ministry will continue...
September 09, 2007
God Bless you Dr. Kennedy-you fought the good fight-now your crown is ready for you.
September 09, 2007
As I watched Dr. Kennedy's sermon today, I was unaware of his passing. The sermon was on what Heaven will be like and are you going there. One thing for sure, Dr. Kennedy is there today and I hope to join him someday. He has been an inspiration to me for many years. God Bless his family and those who will continue his ministery until we all meet again in that wonderful place called Heaven.
September 09, 2007
"Well done, good and faithful servant." You carried the Great Commission to your best. Your ministry was so important and it helped my walk with God. You never compromised your beliefs. This country was founded on Christian beliefs. Your mission was good and we will miss you.
September 09, 2007
Dr. Kennedy will be sorely missed. He was a great teacher and man of God. My prayers go out to his friends, the members of the Coral Ridge Church and most especially to his family. It helps to know that he is in that wonderful place his sermon on television today was based: Heaven.
September 09, 2007
Dear Anne and family - being a pioneer of Fort Lauderdale I realize what a difference your devoted family made to my hometown.
We enjoyed our mixed doubles tennis games with you. We now live in The Villages, Fl. and today watched a beautiful tribute to your beloved husband on televison. Our thoughts are with you and your family. Betty & Joe Lynch
September 09, 2007
A spiritual inspiration to us for over 20 years.
September 09, 2007
I moved to America 22 years ago from Belfast, N.Ireland and have been watching Dr. Kennedy ever since. I don't think I missed a week and have even sent tapes back to my dad. My deepest sympathy to his family. I know that I'll miss him as he was one of the few ministers who had the courage to preach the truth.
September 09, 2007
Dr. Kennedy preached the Cross!!!
that IS the message...the Cross of
Christ and now he sits with Jesus and together they discuss the mystery of life! Oh how he is loving that!!..To the family we send our prayers in this very difficult time,to the church we say

I was so very proud to meet him when I was in Fort Lauderdale for the Reclaiming America For Christ meeting back in 2006.
Mrs. Anne, your husband will be sorely missed...

Dear Family of Dr. Kennedy
With sadness in our hearts at our loss of one of the greatest preachers of God's word to live and preach in this or any other centry we send our prayers and love to you.

September 08, 2007
We were so sorry to hear of your loss. The thoughts of many are with you at this time of sorrow.
September 08, 2007
Dear Mrs. Kennedy, I have followed your ministry through church and TV. I always learned so much history from your husband and his guests. I often wished this was required watching for students in public school. I am so sorry for your loss. I know your ministry will carry on and keep letting the world know the historical truth and the spiritual truth. God Bless you.

We shall miss this man. He was like a member of our family, and although on tv, he was in our homes each Sunday morning prior to our going to church.
September 08, 2007
Dear Ann and Jennifer,

Thank you so much for sharing Dr. Kennedy with me and the countless others over the years. It is my prayer that God will both comfort and heal your hearts at this time of great sadness.

Dr. Kennedy, while here on earth, was a great man of God. The LORD used him mightily in my life as the human instrument to bring me to saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. For that, I am eternally indepted to him and to Him. It was my privilege to have Dr. Kennedy as my shepherd, and the one who first showed me Christ in his words and in his actions. It also was my privilege to work under his leadership at CRPC in various capacities including as Deacon. Those privileges came by the grace of God.

He is, as you know, infinitely better off now: no more pain, no more suffering, no more personal attacks and no more meetings.

He is there, where he always wanted to be, and about where he always spoke. He is in the presence of the Lamb! Undoubtedly he by now has heard first hand: "I Am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty. Do not be afraid; I Am the First and the Last. I Am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I Am alive forevermore. Amen."

Dr. Kennedy has stood steadfastly and faithfullly over a long and God honoring life of serving Him. He will never be forgotten by all who knew him or heard his voice!

In Christ's Grip!
September 08, 2007
My heartfelt sympathies to the family of Dr. Kennedy, whom I listened to on the radio for years. I thank God for his faithful service and the truth of the Gospel in his messages. Until we meet again and share the heavenly feast God is preparing for those who love and follow Him, take comfort in the Risen Savior.
September 08, 2007
Dr Kennedy was a great man and has influenced so many people along the years. I have gone to his church since I was born. Even though he will be missed he is in a better place. Im sure he is happy and celebrating that he finally gets to be in the presence of God.
September 08, 2007
Almost 40 years ago, my good friend, David Todd, shared with me that he had just experienced a life changing event. "How's that?" I asked. Seems that he had sought out a pastor at a local church on Commercial Blvd. and that this minister told him how to have eternal life and that he now had it. Soon after, I met that pastor, Dr. D. James Kennedy. That meeting was a focal point in my life. Through the ministry of Dr. Kennedy, I eventually accepted Christ, or He accepted me. I met my cherished wife, Christa, at Coral Ridge. Dr. Kennedy later married us and presided over the baptism of our 3 children. He also conducted the funeral service of my dear mother. Moreover, through Dr. Kennedy's preaching, we became well versed and grounded in doctrine which has been a beacon for us as we have walked through this troubled world. I especially remember a meeting with Dr. Kennedy and 5 others in 1972. We were to become the initial board of Evangelism Explosion. Through my involvement in EE and, otherwise, I had the privilege of spending time with this great man on a regular basis for nearly 20 years. God blessed Jim Kennedy with a massive intellect, together with an unrivaled passion for Christ. These attributes, coupled with his vision, have impacted the lives of untold millions for Christ and will continue to touch the lives of others for generations to come. In the Heavenly Kingdom, I suspect that I will be spending appreciable time sitting at the feet of my precious friend and mentor, Dr. D. James Kennedy.
September 08, 2007
YOUR LOSS IS GOD'S GAIN.
I FOUND DR. KENNEDY TO BE A SOFT SPOKEN MAN. I NEVER MET HIM BUT I AM SURE HE WAS THAT WAY IN REAL LIFE. PLEASE FIND PEACE IN GOD'S LOVING ARMES.
September 08, 2007
Blessed are they which die unto the Lord, yea saith the Spirit, that their works will follow them. Rev. 14:13
September 08, 2007
He was one of God's chosen to aid the people I attended the Church when I lived in that area and have watched TV ever since moving away. He will be greatly missed.
September 08, 2007
Mrs. Kennedy & Jennifer,
I have never met you, but my mom, Marge Lasecki, and my brother Tom have been attending Coral Ridge almost from the beginning. That is where Tom has grown so strong in his faith, and has always spoken so highly of Dr. Kennedy, and both of you. He has shared some humorous stories, and also more importantly the many teachings of Dr. Kennedy, and how his faith has gotton so much stronger from them.
He will be missed greatly. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you, and that God's love will bring you strength.
With much love,
Donna Wiley
September 08, 2007
God has spoken, "Well done thy good and faithful servant."
September 08, 2007
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
September 08, 2007
Another star shines in heaven.
September 08, 2007
To the family of D. James Kennedy may you find comfort in Jehovah God's words at John 5:28 and 29 that read "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." May you draw close to Jehovah God in prayer, and the Bible promises that "he himself will sustain you."---Psalm 55:22
September 08, 2007
Less hasty am I than the wind, yet I must go. We wanderers, ever seeking the lonelier way, begin no day where we have ended another day; and no sunrise finds us where sunset left us. Even while the earth sleeps we travel. And though death may hide me, and the greater silence enfold me, yet again will I seek your understanding. And not in vain will I seek. It is life in quest of life in bodies that fear the grave. There are no graves here.
September 08, 2007
We have lost another Great Warrior for Christ. His weekly TV broadcasts and the causes he fought for, were an inspiration to many of us out here in the wilderness. May our Precious Lord raise up another great Leader to follow in the footsteps of those who have gone before. Thank You Doctor Kennedy, for giving me hope for my country that I love so much. May you find rest in the Lord's arms now that you've run your course.
September 08, 2007
Dr. Kennedy's Evangelism Explosion program of personal witnessing really helped me to learn how to share my faith. I am forever indebted to him for this vision of training people how to share their faith. Thanks, Dr. Kennedy. My prayers are with the Kennedy family at this time of sorrow and grief.
September 08, 2007
From the times of my youth this man has had a positive impact on my life. He just seemed like a holy man of God, and that is the way I will remember him, being a part of my many fond memories, as a young Christian.

God bless and keep you family of this Godly man. I will surely miss him.

May heaven smile upon you, and may you feel The Father's Peace To Overflowing!

You are in my prayers!
September 08, 2007
To The Kennedy Family: Your loved one has passed on but, he has left a witness of faithfulness to his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. His sermons have blessed a multitude of people. He will be greatly missed! The angels have welcomed him home.
September 07, 2007
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
September 07, 2007
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

Please accept my deepest sympathies.
September 07, 2007
"Jesus wept"...we weep, King David wept...for a season, but now...we people of God receive comfort from the only book which will be left when this earth as we know it, becomes our eternal heaven where all believers will live forever, knowing each other and watching each other receive eternal rewards and God's just and merciful judgments.

God alone is good. "Blessed in the sight of the Lord are the death of His Saints"...Reader of this, if you remember Dr. Kennedy, you will recall with affection, that he asked you, "Why do you believe that God should let you into Heaven?" What would you say today? God will surely let you know whether He chose you from before you were born. Do you sense a desire to learn this most important answer?

Until then, seek Him in the Bible, attend Coral Ridge worship services and do not rest until He gives you assurance that He has given you saving faith...in Christ and His cross work for His people...the gift-faith which He will provide to His people, after which we abide, as gifts to Christ our Savior and Lord in the power of the Holy Spirit of God.

Dr. Kennedy's life was sustained by the one and only God, the God of the Bible, Who alone gives us strength to bid farewell to our loved ones while we remain here to carry out The Great Commission as we yet have breath in this brief life. There is no other way to Heaven but through Christ Jesus.

May God be praised while we are grieving and while we are healing. For, God foreordains all things which come to pass, up to the very hour and minute. May this same Jesus comfort all of us within the family of God. And, may God be pleased to glorify Himself by drawing many to Him as the result of the calling of D. James Kennedy. Soli Deo Gloria!

HOME AT LAST
I am finally home, so please don't cry
I am not dead - I DID NOT DIE!
I'm more alive than ever before
If you could see the heavenly shore.

Jesus welcomed me into His loving arms
Now I'm free from all life's harms
No more heartache and no more stress
Right now I'm living life at its best.

To see Jesus face to face
He saved me by His great grace
I closed my eyes on earth below
And opened them to streets of gold!

Life on earth is short and fleeting
Is it Jesus or Satan whom you'll be meeting?
The firery pit or eternal glory
I hope you know the Greatest Story.

Your good works won't get you in
Or time in church that you did spend
JESUS is the ONLY way
Accept Him in your heart today.

He died on a cross to save you
Believe in Him is all you need do
He carried your sins to the cross and died
The cruelest of deaths to be crucified.

He waits for you with arms open wide
To welcome you home on the other side
God showed you that no grave could hold Him
So open your heart and let Him in.

Then off to paradise you will go
To a Savior who loves you so.
I took my last breath and felt relief
If you could see heaven, you'd have no grief.

As I told you all before
JESUS is the ONLY door
So please don't cry any tears for me
I'm with Jesus for all eternity!

This should be a great celebration
One of joy and jubilation!
Shed only tears of joy for me
I will live on in your memory.

If you know Jesus, we will meet again
So share the salvation message with a friend
When you die your life does not end
It will only be beginning again!
September 07, 2007
God called His faithful servant to His Kingdom to provide Dr. Kennedy with an eternal rest. However, Dr. Kennedy's vision and passion for the church will be with us until we will see him again. God bless his family.
September 07, 2007
I will always remember Dr. Kennedy as one of the greatest Americans who ever lived
September 07, 2007
Eye has not seen,nor ear heard..the things which God has prepared for those who loved Him.1 Corinthians 2:9

We are grateful for Dr.Kennedy's faithfulness and humble example to us...it is a privilege to work for Coral Ridge Ministries(Carol) since 1985...to grow under your teaching of the Word, be encouraged to share the hope within us...our lives have been forever changed. Dr. Kennedy walked "the walk" and challenged us to follow...we say thank you faithful servant.

Anne, Jennifer, Chip and family..we continue to keep you in our prayers...and close to our hearts.

Blessings in Christ,

He will be greatly missed, but be certain that he is with the Christ he so deeply loved. Our prayers are certainly with you and your family.
September 07, 2007
In 1995, Dr. Kennedy was a voice in the wilderness of radio. I heard him by "accident" and continued to listen. I was a professional and successful man living a live of destruction and nonsense. I gave my life to Christ during one of his radio prayers. And what a blessing it was to find out that I was only twenty minutes from his Church. I thank God for my life. I thank God for Dr. Kennedy's commitment and strength. See you in heaven someday.
September 07, 2007
Dear Kennedy family:

Many of us owe our eternity to Dr. Kennedy's faithful witness of Christ. His congregation spawned Spanish River Church, which is where Jimmy Taylor got saved, who later became choir director there. Jimmy witnessed to me and saw me come to Christ. "Truths That Transform" has been an invaluable resource to me and to countless thousands worldwide. Dr. Kennedy now is where he said he would be, safe in our Savior's arms, more alive than ever before! You will be in my prayers.
September 07, 2007
My love goes out to the family and friends of D.James Kennedy. I watched him on Christian TV. He is happy to be in his eternal home in heaven with our Savior & Lord Jesus Christ. I am looking forward to meeting him some day. He was a faithful servant of God and pleasant person. My sympathy goes out to family and friends. He will be missed. Love, Janice
September 07, 2007
I was so sorry to hear of your loss. The thoughts of many are with you at this time of sorrow.

My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
September 07, 2007
Now Pastor Kennedy is ready to answer the famous EE second question, wow! in front of his Father, I imagine him telling God:"By faith, because Jesus Christ died for me and payed for my sins". Even if we lost a great christian leader, we know he has prepared lots of people all around the world in order to continue the Great Commission as Jesus Christ taught us. My sympathy to the family and church.

"Welcome home, good and faithful servant."
Dr Kennedy was a HUGE part of my upbringing. I am thankful that my parents consistently brought me to Coral Ridge when I lived in Lauderdale. He will be missed.

Across the U.S. here in Oregon, this pastor touched my life many times over many years. I so enjoyed watching him on TV. He will be sorely missed, but welcomed with rewards in Heaven. We have lost a Godly man who was NOT afraid to speak truth.....
September 07, 2007
Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.
September 07, 2007
Rev. Kennedy was a great inspiration to us as a moral leader and taking responsibiliy for standing up for the church in this country.

There's an old saying, "Only one life, it will soon be past. Only what's done for Christ will last." As a member of his congregation, I can attest that Dr. Kennedy did not store up treasures on this earth. Rather, he poured himself out for the cause of Christ. He was the real deal, and his ministries have made an immeasurable, eternal impact on the lives of my family. He will be missed, but I smile to think of him basking in the love of His Savior.
September 07, 2007
Great American and Great Christian!
My deepest sympathy, America will miss you!
September 07, 2007
Dr. Kennedy will be deeply missed by our family personally. When we are out of town and not able to attend our church, we would always turn the t.v. on to Dr. Kennedy. He has touched our lives in so many ways and has helped us grow more in Christ with his sermons.
He always reminded me of my father who also has gone to be with the Lord, and so I know the two of them are enjoying themselves in heaven. My father has the same kind of christian beliefs about our world and would speak as directly about issues as Dr. Kennedy. He preached the gospel as it should be taught to us. May his life's legacy live on forever.
Those we hold most dear never truly leave us.
In Christian Love,

James Kennedy is a real hero of the faith. I first met him in the 1960's when he and his wife visited Bible Presbyterian Church in Indianapolis, IN. Subsequently, my late husband and I attended his church in Ft. Lauderdale when we visited my in-laws in Ft. Lauderdale.

We watched how God grew Dr.Kennedy's ministry over the years.

My sincere condolences to his wife and daughter, and to those who worked closely with him. His absence will be a heartbreak to you all. But, the work he did and what he stood for will live on and, Lord willing, be expanded as you continue contending for the Christian faith and for the preservation of this nation.

Sincerely,

Wendy Brant

Please accept my deepest sympathies.

Being a disabled Nam Vet, I have lost my Pastor. I remember the Sunday after Jim Bakker was arested, everyone awaited Dr. Kennedy's comment. Tears flowed as he took the pulpit and confessed that he had a confession, a confession that he doubted the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Hearts began to break. What a collective sigh of relief when he revealed he was speaking as apostle, "Doubting Thomas", to the rest of the disciples. What a master Dr. Kennedy was at saying so much without saying anything. He didn't have to mention Jim Bakker.
My condolences to all who loved him, DR. Kennedy, until we meet again.
September 07, 2007
As a visitor from germany i heard Dr. Kennedy two times in the last years, and i was blessed. May the lord comfort his family.
September 07, 2007
I wnet though a time when I could not find a church that challenged believers to a deeper faith. Dr. Kennedy's teaching really helped me maintain and grow my spiritual walk. It is a great loss to those of us who are left behind to lose his wisdom and teaching, but I will look forward to meeting him in heaven.
September 07, 2007
Dr. Kennedy will be missed. He touched the lives of so many. I personally gave my life to the Lord because of Dr. Kennedy's ministry as did my mother, father, grandparents and aunts. Because of Dr. Kennedy's vision I was able to receive a Christian education and am very thankful to say, so is my son. My prayers and thoughts go out to Dr. Kennedy's family. God Bless you all! As Dr. Kennedy would say,"This is the day the Lord has made let us rejoice and be glad in it."
September 07, 2007
Dr. Kennedy.We have lost one more great voice for the cause of Christ. Who will stand in the gap? God is gathering the shepherds so they can stand inside heaven's gates and welcome their flocks to their promised home. Jesus Christ is coming back!
September 07, 2007
Dr.Kennedy helped me with my sharing of Christ.His reward will be Great.
September 07, 2007
Life time to teach us and eternity in the presence of Christ. You can't beat that.
September 07, 2007
We will all miss Dr. Kennedy and we are all grateful for his words of faith in which he sought to bring us all back to the Christian heritage given to us by our founders. He is now at rest with the Lord Jesus Christ who he worshipped and loved so faithfully. God Bless his wonderful wife and family at this time! What a wonderful Man of God!
September 07, 2007
September 07, 2007
It is with a heavy yet glorious heart that we will miss Dr Kennedy here on earth, but know we will see him in heaven one day. What a wonderful and faithful servant you have been to us and our family. Our hearts go out to your immediate family and prayers to your world wide family. You are truely loved.
September 07, 2007
What a great man. Few will leave such a meaninful legacy. To God be the glory for this good and faithful
servant.
September 07, 2007
I will never forget a meeting I had with Dr. Kennedy in 1965, and think about it often. The purpose of the meeting was to ask him to attend the first Baccalaureate at Northeast High. He didn't say yes without an interview. During the meeting he asked what faith tradition I followed. After fumbling, I said something and he knew there was none in my life. God leads my life today and Dr. Kennedy, in his way, gave me the subtle reminder which I never will forget.
September 07, 2007
Your presence will be missed.
September 07, 2007
Dr. Kennedy:
After the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, you have impacted my life and the life of my family. We deeply love you and miss you. Thank you. Linda Blake
September 07, 2007
The good reverand surely showed us the way.
September 07, 2007
I will miss you, and I thank God
for the many years, I received God's word through you.
May God keep his Family in HIS great peace.

Dr.Kennedy has left behind his foot steps where we are suppose to follow in the world of Evangelism. EE a wonderful ministry touching people of all caste,creed,language,rich,poor etc in an easy and smoother way
September 07, 2007
My dear father passed away on September 5, 1986, at the age of 73 in Pompano Beach. In the year preceding his death, he accepted Christ into his heart as his Lord and Savior after responding to Dr. Kennedy's broadcast message. I had prayed for my father ever since I was a young girl, and my heart is filled with gratitude to Dr. Kennedy for leading others to Christ. Personally, Dr. Kennedy's messages have ministered to me in a significant way over the years. "I Refuse to Worry" is one that comes to mind as having a life-changing impact. Well done, good and faithful servant.
In Christ, Connie Roads
September 07, 2007
It is with great earthly sorrow that we learned of Dr. Kennedy's passing, but with great heavenly joy that we have full faith that he is now walking with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! Praise be to God for allowing us the priviledge of knowing Dr. Kennedy through his ministries. We learned many things from him and he will be sorely missed here, but we look forward to seeing him again in heaven with our Lord. Our deepest condolences go to his family in this time of earthly sorrow for this wonderful Christian gentleman.
September 07, 2007
Your ministry was a blessing to many . My Dad did not watch many other television ministers but he always had good comments about your program. Our family wishes to convey our deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Dr.Kennedy.
September 07, 2007
Even though I know longer attend Coral Ridge I grew up in that Church and was led to the Lord through the Teachings of the Ministers of Coral Ridge when it was located on Commercial Blvd. as a teenager. I loved the small church and all the activities it had to offer. I taught Sunday School, and Rev. Kennedy, his wife and daughter were such wonderful people and an example of a true Christian family. His work in this community will live on. What a party is going on in Heaven at this time, his work on Earth will continue!
September 07, 2007
One can only immagine the size of Pastor Kennedy's mansion in glory, after so many years fighting the good fight.
September 07, 2007
You are in my thoughts and prayers.
September 07, 2007
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
September 07, 2007
Our prayers are with you Jennifer & Anne. Throughout our many years at CRPC & WA, Jim was our guiding light, his teachings leading us to Christ many years ago. "O, Love that wilt not let me go, I rest my weary soul in Thee. I give Thee back the life I owe, That in Thine ocean's depths its flow, May richer, fuller be." Until we meet again - Joe & Tam & the Radler Family

To the D. James Kennedy family,
My family's heart-felt sympathy goes out to your family. On Sunday nights it was a ritual for us to watch his service. He was a very spoken Biblical versed minister expressing his sermons in such a way. His talent to take an idea from a mustard seed and have it grow from there was remarkable.
His Biblical knowledge ability was so great that people learned very quickly about God. He will be sadly missed. Now he can serve God in Heaven. God now has been blessed with a great servant.
God bless you always,

Larry and Marilyn Herbert
September 07, 2007
The Grace of God quickens the heart through bended knee and the lost are chosen. Dr. Kennedy has boldly and shamelessly shared the Word, the Good News of Christ Jesus in truth. As Christ lives many will join him in glory.
September 07, 2007
Very sad news but we know he is with the Lord he faithfully served. His powerful voice and message will be missed.
September 07, 2007
The finest Christian Pastor this nation has ever seen. An inspiration and a guidepost for everyone that calls themselves a Christian. His knowledge and insight will be sadly missed, his warmth and humility always remembered.
September 07, 2007
He taught me to delve into the bible more than anyone ever did. He was always such an encouragment to me. He is my favorite preacher. I will miss him dearly. At least I know how now that he is singing with all the saints in heaven. I can't wait to see him again!
September 07, 2007
I thank God for what He did in and thru the life of D James kennedy in faithfully representing Our God and savior with faithfulness. I pray that the timothy's that he raised will continue the work that was started with faithfulness and integrity till the day of our lord's return.

Dr. Kennedy was like a member of our family. We enjoyed his television sermons and also mail from him with urgent messages to inform us of events. He will be with us in spirit and never forgotten.
September 07, 2007
I will truly miss Dr. Kennedy and his uplifting words. Dr. Kennedy's love for Christ and his congregation will always be remembered.
September 07, 2007
Dr. Kennedy's question, "If you were to die tonight, do you know if you will go to Heaven?" has been an inspiration to me in my witnessing. He was definitely a hero amongst heroes. The Christian world will miss him.
September 07, 2007
Rev.D. James Kennedy was one of the few great Ministers that I would watch and allow my children to watch... what a wonderful Shining light He was to the world, and will be very missed... Praise God we will all meet again in Heaven.....
September 07, 2007
KENNEDY EVANGELISM WAS INSTRUMENTAL IN MY COMING TO CHRIST. I THANK YOU FOR THIS DR. KENNEDY. MY SYMPATHY GOES TO THE FAMILY. SINCERELY IN CHRIST,
September 07, 2007
My mom read his promises book every day till she died at 98, and loved watching his TV programs. I did, too, and listen to his radio teachings every day. I hope they will still replay each of them. He was #l at America's history and teaching God's great truths. I will miss him greatly!
September 07, 2007
My condolences to Dr. Kennedy's family. I admired especially his strong stand for respect for life at all stages.
September 07, 2007
I thank God for loaning us Dr. Kennedy and the blessing of his time with us on this Earth. His messages have served to strengthen my walk with God, and millions of other over the course of his life.
Well done, good and faithful servant! Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His Saints!
September 07, 2007
I'm sorry to see you go for we need you more now than ever. But you have fought the good fight, you have finished the race the Lord had for you, you have kept the faith. Now there is in store for you the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to you on that day--and not only to you, but also to all who have longed for his appearing. God Bless you sir and my condolences to the family. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord as a believer in Jesus Christ.
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy will be sorely missed. He was always there, as long as I have been a Christian. In a dark world, he was always showing forth the light of Christ. I can only hope to live my life in Christ the way that he did.
September 06, 2007
Thank you Rev. D. James Kennedy for all your years serving God.
While I didn't watch your program much, I could tell just by scanning through the channels that you were indeed, a man of God.
Your love for your fellow man glared through you and therefore I am certain that you will be rewarded by the Almighty God.
September 06, 2007
Thank you, Dr. Kennedy, for staying the course and fighting the good fight. You will be missed. Enjoy your reward, sir.
September 06, 2007
I will miss Dr. Kennedy very much. I watched Coral Ridge every week and always enjoyed hearing what he had to say.
He stood up for things in this country that needed to be stood up for.
I am sure he is with the Lord and I hope some day I will be too.
September 06, 2007
May God bless the Kennedy family and hold them close to His heart. Dr. Kennedy proclaimed the love of Christ and the truth of the Gospel. We will miss him greatly.
September 06, 2007
Watched Dr. Kennedy almost every Sunday morning. We will miss him. God bless his family.
September 06, 2007
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
September 06, 2007
We deeply regret the death of Dr. Kennedy because the voice of a true preacher of the Word of God has been silenced. We admired his humble spirit and his scholarship which showed in his preaching.
My wife has been a faithful monthly contributor to his ministry.
September 06, 2007
I am saddened to learn of the passing of Dr. Kennedy tonight. However, I am confident that he has already seen Jesus and the face of God the Father. His crusade for the rights of Christian believers and his indepth teachings of the ways of Christ inspired me in my daily life and encouraged me to always carry the fight for God and never give up no matter what. Heaven is blessed! America is blessed for having known this Man of God.I will miss him greatly.
September 06, 2007
I believe Dr. Kennedy was a hero to many of us. He was truly a man to be looked up to and admired. I appreciated his intellect and unashamed preaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
September 06, 2007
Thank you Dr. Kennedy for all we have learned from you, for your love of Christ, and for your unwavering stand for Christ in our community and throughout the world. Thank you for being in the world but not of the world. Thank you for hugging our Bobby, for speaking about Homeschooling, for E.E... for so much, we are eternally grateful.

Halleluja for you are where you have taught us about so well- heaven with Jesus.

Thank you Mrs. Kennedy for being a gracious, smiling, concerned, kind, loving, Godly example for the women in our church. Thank you for showing us how to be our husband's helper.
We love you! And Jennifer too! :)
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy was instrumental in my growth as a Christian and the development of my Christian worldview over the past twenty years. I was fortunate enough to actually meet and speak briefly with him twice, and have used his books and videos to teach adult Bible courses. His insights, wisdom and courage in the battle will be sorely missed.
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy was an inspiration to me. He had a powerful christian testimony and set an example for all of us. He will be greatly missed.
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy always encouraged me every time I heard him speak. He led us in standing up for what is right. He loved Jesus Christ. I'm thankful that I had the opportunity to go hear him in person and shake his hand following the message. I will miss him, and I thank God for his life.
September 06, 2007
Thank you Dr.Kennedy for your years of dedicated service to the Lord,even in the face of reticule or danger you stood firm in your faith to the very end.Well done good & faithful servant!
September 06, 2007
Thank you D. James.
September 06, 2007
My life was changed in 1968 when D. James Kennedy and Jack Ford and his wife (a channel 4 news anchorman) knocked on my door one evening and asked me a couple of questions I could not answer. Dr. Kennedy explained the plan of salvation to me and before they left, I prayed to receive Christ as my personal saviour! My 40 yr christian journey has been wonderful. I rejoice in his homecoming where there is no pain or suffering for him now, but I was sad to hear of his passing. He will be terribly missed by those who knew him personally, through television, and by those who read his books. We have lost a great preacher, friend, statesman, and a wonderful Christian!
I look forward to seeing him dance the tango, samba, and rhumba in heaven, as well as fellowship with him for eternity when the Lord calls me Home! My prayers of comfort go out to Anne, Jennifer, and Chip.
Ps. 62:1,2
September 06, 2007
Anne and Jennifer,
We are forever grateful that God chose Jim Kennedy to start Evangelism Explosion as we came to know Christ through EE. And we praise God that He called us into ministry under Dr. Kennedy! It was our privilege to grow in our faith under his teachings. Our lives, and our families lives, have been truely changed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We love your family and will pray for you often in the years ahead. Thank you for supporting him all these years, so that he could explain to us and to show us all how Christians should act.
Your co-laborers for Christ,
September 06, 2007
My husband and I have watched Dr.Kennedy almost every Sunday morning. He has been a source of truth and light for us. We will miss him dearly.Jim and Charlotte Way (Tehachapi, California)
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy,
Your words and messages changed our lives. I know that you are home with Our Savior; but we shall miss you more than you can ever imagine!
September 06, 2007
Well done my good and faithful servant.
September 06, 2007
OUR LOSS......GOD'S GAIN
September 06, 2007
In a rebroadcast recently of a message by Dr. Kennedy, he said one day this would happen. "Don't you believe it!", he said. "I'll be more alive than I've ever been!" Love to family and friends.
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy,
You are with my PaPa (James "Jim" Peck) now. You guys can keep each other company in the wonderful Heaven that you are now living in. Thank you for all of your dedication to the church.
September 06, 2007
The christian world has lost a mighty man of valor. Dr. Kennedy blessed us all and carried the banner of righteousness for our nation and for our families so well. I will always be thankful for his Evangelism Explosion teaching that helped me to be a soul winner for Christ. May God Himself, the God of all comfort, sustain his family at this time. I will be praying for them as they face the days ahead.
September 06, 2007
thank you for your faithfulness and for your radio program "Truths That Transform", that has been a source of encouragement and knowledge for me and many. Now you are home and safe. May the Lord bless and keep your family.
September 06, 2007
"Well done, good and faithful servant".
What a strong crusader for Christ!
I became a supporter for Grassfire by listening to his words of wisdom and wanting to change the evil in this world. So many lives have been changed by this wonderful man. May God comfort his family.
September 06, 2007
Dr Kennedy was a great man. A learned scholar, a loving husband, and concerned citizen. The world will miss his presence here. As the rest of us continue to battle to reform our great country to get back to its " biblical roots" he was a pioneer and role model for others to follow. His perseverance and conviction in his faith has made a mark on our world that we cannot deny. I can only pray that we (as Christians) will continue to fight the good fight.
We will surely miss him....
September 06, 2007
He has run his race, he has finished his course, preceeding us in preparation for the soon coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. We will miss his leadership, but we must continue the cause.
September 06, 2007
What a blessing it has been to have known you and worshiped together with you. Thank you for your steadfast diligence and commitment to the cause of Christ. Till we meet in heaven, Love
September 06, 2007
Thank you Rev. Kennedy for standing firm in a world of compromise. You have steadfastly pointed to Christ and encouraged me to be steadfast in my walk with the Lord.
September 06, 2007
I will always remember you as a true servant of God. I will remember and use a phrase that Rev. Kennedy said in EE training."What is your name? and the solider answered after being asked several times. Christian!
This has impacted my life so many times. It is not good bye but see you one day.
September 06, 2007
The United States will forever be in debt to Dr. Kennedy for his strong support of God's Word and the American way of life.

God Bless.
September 06, 2007
I listened and watch Dr. Kennedy every week, a Wonderful man of GOD who stood up for what was right. a great fighter for the family and all that was right according to the Bible. He will be missed very much. God bless his family
September 06, 2007
My life and the lives of my family are forever changed because of the life and teachings of Dr. Kennedy. My prayers go out to Mrs. Kennedy, Jennifer, Chip and the rest of the Kennedy family. Thank you Lord for "lending" this amazing man to all of us... until we meet again.
September 06, 2007
What an inspriation! Our prayers go out to the family and local church in Ft. Lauderdale. Dr. Kennedy has been such an influence for Christ in our lives through EE, Coral Ridge Ministries and Truths that Transform. We look forward to thanking this great man in glory.
September 06, 2007
My thoughts and prayers are with the Kennedy family. His personal ministry led my parents to Christ and through the minisitries at Coral Ridge, I came to know Christ in a personal way that has continued to guide me through life.
September 06, 2007
"Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints" Ps. 116:15


Dr. Kennedy had a biblical worldview, which is a rarity in today's pulpits.He had a vision, not only for the present, but for the generation yet to be born.His outspokeness for righteousness, and defense of the unborn will be sorely missed.

May his legacy continue.
September 06, 2007
Thanks be to God for James Kennedy! His Evangelism Explosion particularly blessed me and helped me win souls for the past 39 years.
September 06, 2007
There are few really strong, visible Men of God these days. Reverend Kennedy was one of them. I will miss his love, his wisdom and his insight into these, our final days.
September 06, 2007
Dr.Kennedy will be remembered for his stalwart effort to promote evangelism, the sanctity of life,a return to Judeo-Christian values in America, and Christian education. The fruit of that labor remains while he goes on to his reward for service well-done.
September 06, 2007
I have been greatly blessed by Dr. Kennedy's ministry. Evangelism Esplosion training has helped me lead others to Christ. I praise God for Dr. Kennedy.
September 06, 2007
A great Godly man! Courageous, and humble. Will be missed on earth and rewarded greatly in Heaven.
September 06, 2007

September 06, 2007
He was a joy and blessing in our lives. His pursuit of values, morality, and decency for all of us is unsurpassed.
He will be missed.
September 06, 2007
I have been inspired for many years by Rev. Kennedy. I pray men and women everywhere stand up and accept the challenge to carry the mantel this great man left.
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy will be sorely missed. God bless his family
September 06, 2007
I thank God for a man who was unafraid to speak the Truth to all who would hear. I pray that the Lord would send comfort to his family at this difficult time. The world has lost a truly God-fearing man, but he is now joyfully singing praises before the throne of the Lord!
"Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His saints."

September 06, 2007
I will really miss his sermons. I am worried about america's future without good leaders. God bless Dr. Kennedy's family.
September 06, 2007
I was so shocked when I learned of Dr. Kennedys death. I know he is in bliss now, but for us still here, I will never forget his work here on earth. He was a true man of God, for sure speaking the truth about this world and what needs to happen and continue to happen for all to know the truth about our Lord Jesus Christ and His true love for all humanity. No one has dealt with the hardcore of this world then Dr. Kennedy..I pray his ministry continues to work throughout the world.
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy brought so much joy into my Sunday worship as I looked forward to that day to watch him teach the ways of our Lord. His powerful spirit lifted me many times through his talks and literature. I have also learned from him to speak up to our politicians for what is right through the eyes of the Lord.

His passing is another powerful reminder how precious life is and how we must love our angels all we can while they are with us on this earth. Dr. Kennedy will truly be missed.
September 06, 2007
Goodbye to a faithful servant of our Lord Jesus Christ. May your family , friends , and you touched find solace in knowing you are in the presence of our wonderful Lord.
September 06, 2007
Each week I looked forward to hearing both the TV program and listening to Truths That Transform. I Pray that they will continue online and I pray for Mrs. Kennedy and daughter.
May God's Grace, Mercy, Peace, and Love be multiplied to you both, and the entire ministry. Bro. John
September 06, 2007
I’m grateful that my parents were invited to Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church when I was just a child. It was then that their lives changed as they understood Christ’s love for them. They desired Christian education for their three children and so we attended Westminster Academy, the school that Dr. Kennedy founded.
My sister’s fourth grade teacher was so excited about Dr. Kennedy’s Evangelism presentation that she taught it to her students. My sister was practicing the presentation and asked me this famous question: “If you died today and stood before God and He asked you, ‘Why should I let you into my heaven what would you say?’” Coming face to face with that question was a turning point in my life.
Our family worshipped at CRPC all throughout my childhood and into my adulthood. I married a young man that I happened to meet in Sunday School at CRPC and we have been privileged to raise three children. Two of our children have already graduated from Westminster Academy and our third is still in high school there.
Dr. Kennedy’s vision, sacrifice, commitment, and character have been a tremendous example. I frequently reflect back on his solid, scripturally based instruction from the pulpit.
September 06, 2007
Thank You, Jesus, for loaning us Dr. D. James Kennedy! Thank you for all the wonderful things You have accomplished through Your faithful servant! Please comfort both family and friends in their loss!
September 06, 2007
We are sorrowed by the untimely death of Dr. James Kennedy. We pray for the family, friends, and parishioners of Dr. Kennedy.

What a blessing to all Dr. Kennedy has been with his anointed messages so clearly given to us. His sermons were timely for any era.

May God’s Love, Blessings, and Tender Mercies rest in all those that loved Dr. Kennedy.

We pray the Healing and Peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be added.

Also, include the Guidance and Comfort of our Blessed Holy Spirit.

Proverbs 16:7 (King James Bible)
When a man's ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.

Matthew 5:4 (King James Bible)
Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

1st Peter 1:3 (King James Bible)
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

September 06, 2007

Our Christian sympathy goes out to the family of D. James Kennedy. He was a teriffic pastor. When living in Ft. Lauderdale, we sat only a couple seats from Dr. Kennedy during the Christmas Musical Handel's Messiah. When one of us was not able to attend church (sick at home), we knew we could attend church by watching his service on TV. God's blessings to the Kennedy family.
September 06, 2007
Rev. Kennedy was an outstanding preacher and teacher, who will be sorely missed. His intellect, kindness and wit inspired me, and strengthened my faith. May God comfort and bless his family.
September 06, 2007
God Bless you Dr. Kennedy. You made the world a much better place.
September 06, 2007
I am so honored to know him as My pastor and friend; I am happy to know your family & you are a friend of God.
September 06, 2007
As a young Christian so many years ago I know that I was discipled and taught so much through Dr. Kennedy's ministry. His passion for evangelism and for having a voice in our nation's affairs resonated with me as well. I thank God for this grear apologist, pastor, erudite teacher and warrior for the Christian faith!
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy and the Evangelism Explosion ministry he started have had a profound impact on my life and that of my family's.

I was saved through EE and my life has never been the same.

I have also been a member of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church for several years and Dr. Kennedy and his teaching have been life transforming for myself, my husband and our children.

I also have great respect and deep admiration for his godly wife Ann and his devoted daughter Jennifer.

I know my family and I will greatly miss Dr. Kennedy and we are very thankful for how God has used him in our lives.
September 06, 2007
Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
September 06, 2007
I always learned so much from Rev. Kennedy's sermons. I admired and respected him. He wanted us not to cry but be happy that he is with the Lord. You will be missed on this earth. God bless your family.
September 06, 2007
I always knew that I would receive blessings and great teaching when I watched Dr. Kennedy's program. Now he is in the presence of Jesus, the One he served so faithfully. God grant sweet peace to your wife and daughter.

Dr. Kennedy did great service for God and Country, as an outstanding Christian Patriot whose influence will long be remembered. God rest his soul in Christ's presence.
September 06, 2007
Dr Kennedy inspired myself and my family over the years in our Christian walk. He will truly be missed.
September 06, 2007
America and the Chruch has lost a great man of God. Our prayers are with the family. May God grant you that peace that passes all understanding.
September 06, 2007
May God bless us with more men who stand for truth and right. Dr. Kennedy was truly a godly man and a great American.

May God comfort those in his family and his church family during this time of great loss.
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy spoke the truth and was a great inspiration for me watching him on TV. I always learned something listening to him. What a wonderful man and christian! My condolences to his family.
September 06, 2007
I thank our God on every remembrance of Jim Kennedy! He has been one of the very most positive influences in my life and the lives of my friends.

Through Jim Kennedy, I left behind most shyness and became bold in effectively sharing Jesus Christ with the unbelieving world around me. My christian faith was clarified and strengthened. I have taken on a clear christian world-and-life view. I love people more than ever. Many good character qualities have been made stronger.

Jim Kennedy lived the respectable and purposeful life that he made it clear each one of us should strive to live, with all honor and glory going to our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, the only way of a joyful eternal life with Him.

Thank you, Jim, for these things and much more. And praise the Lord for you, Anne and Jennifer, that you as wife and daughter, have the godly characteristics of the Kennedy family. Chip, you were wise to marry into such a fine family. Some day, because of Jesus alone, we will be together in heaven, not just for "90 minutes", but forever!
September 06, 2007
Rev Kennedy led me to Jesus way back when he was in the small building on Commercial Blvd. Because of that moment in time, and the words Rev Kennedy chose to say that day, (that led me to the Lord), I can so happily say that my entire family has been born again. The Bible says "and your whole house shall be saved".
Rev Kennedy shined brightly for Jesus down here on earth and I'm sure he is amazed at the brightness that radiates from God, (even after telling everyone about heaven for years), I know he is still surprised at the beauty, because our minds just can't comprehend what God has waiting for us, and we all know right now, there is no "HAPPIER" man.
I pray God blesses Anne, Jennifer and the rest of his family & close friends. Praise the Lord, and thank you Rev for everything you did while you graced this place called earth.
September 06, 2007
My thoughts and prayers are with you both, Anne and Jennifer, you have a deep personal loss, but you can rejoice in the way Jim has led and changed many lives, including mine. May God put His arms around you and help you through this difficult time.
September 06, 2007
Hello there,

You all don't know me, but one day we'll get to meet in Heaven -- until then, please know that Pastor D.J.K.'s support of Exodus and Love Won Out made a difference in many people's lives -- including mine.

God bless you all and may Papa continue to hold you REAL close in His Strong, Kind, Loving Arms.

In His Great Love!

My thoughts and prayers are with his dear wife and daughter at this time. Thank God for giving us men such as Dr. Kennedy. Truly men on whose shoulders we are able to stand on!
September 06, 2007
We'll miss you and all you offered our community and the entire world with Evangalism Explosion and the entire Creation Science ministry. And for putting faith in and encouraging Tom Derosa which has impacted the United States and abroad with a permanent and lasting direction. And both ministries have changed my direction and given new purpose. Jeremiah 6:16
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy was a pastor's pastor: eloquent, professional. A class act in the Lord's Army
September 06, 2007
As so many others have stated, I know Dr. Kennedy has truly heard those wonderful words, "Well done, my good and faithful servant." Thank you sir, for being a light in a dark world and never wavering from the truth. Your words of encouragement brought me through many dark times, and I pray now the words of those whose lives you touched will be a source of comfort to your family at this time.
To the family of Dr. Kennedy, I pray for the peace of God to comfort and surround you as never before.
September 06, 2007
I watched Dr.Kennedy on T.V.and not only did he know his Bible,but he knew the state of affairs of the country and the world.He will be missed,but in great company.
September 06, 2007
D, James Kennedy, that name is written in the Lambs Book of Life. The man of God has been called home. Lord have mercy on us. We hope to see you soon brother James.
September 06, 2007
Well done my good and faithful servant! What a blessing Dr. Kennedy was to me and my family. We were so blessed by his messages of salvation and eternal life. What he preached from the pulpit about paradise he is living right now at this very moment. Our loss is heaven's gain, but we Christians will be reunited again with him in a heaven that knows no end. He now walked through the door that led to paradise where he has no more pain, no more suffering, no more tears, no more sadness, but only joy, peace, contentment and happiness as Jesus welcomed him home. What a glorious day that must have been for him. Here is a picture that I treasure of Dr. Kennedy, Mrs. Kennedy and myself at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church. The world has lost a great man. Weeping endures for a moment, but joy comes in the morning. He is now walking streets of gold with all the saints who have gone on before. My deepest and most heartfelt sympathy to Mrs. Kennedy, Jennifer and Chip as they deal with this great loss. May God wrap His loving arms around them at this most difficult time. Absent from the body, present with the Lord. II Corinthians 5:8
God bless you.
September 06, 2007
Thanks for bring us Evangelism Explosion.
September 06, 2007
I once had the opportunity to meet with Dr. Kennedy but had to decline. I trust that I will have that chance again in a far better place.

Ann & Jennifer may God continue to comfort and strengthen you in this hour of sorrow. Jim was a Divine original and will be missed.(IThessalonians 4:13-18)
September 06, 2007
May the love of Jesus Christ sustain the family in the days ahead. Dr. Kennedy was an inspiration for all Christians. He will be greatly missed.
September 06, 2007
My sincerest condolences in your time of loss. He shall be deeply missed.

Often, I listened to him on the radio while I've been bed-bound and his voice spoke the truth with compassion with a foundation firmly within the historical context. He led the way to Jesus and proclaimed His precious name. He is now in His presence, Hallelulia!
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy I did not know personally, but his sermons on T.V. helped my understanding of the Bible.He finished the race well.He will be deeply missed by myself and, no doubt, countless others.I look forward to meeting him in Heaven so that we can rejoice in the Lord together as bretheren.
September 06, 2007
We attend when we are in Florida during the winter. Dr Kennedy will be missed, but he is safely in God's hands
September 06, 2007
I have never heard Dr. Kennedy personally but have often watched his television program. His message was always wonderful to hear. I especially loved the "Ten Commandents" serman that he preached. I know that he has found his place with GOD.
September 06, 2007
I met Dr. Kennedy at an evangelism conference in Birmingham several years ago. Seeing me standing alone prior to the start of a session, Dr. Kennedy walked several feet and approached me. He asked about my life and offered to pray for me regarding some matters that I had shared with him. That showed me what a truly humble man that Dr. Kennedy was. God puts such humble men as Dr. Kennedy in places of true leadership. Thank you Dr. Kennedy for caring.
September 06, 2007
Thank you Dr Kennedy for your inspiration
September 06, 2007
With deep sorrow only I could hear the passing away of Dr. James Kennedy who was a blessing to me with his ministry and messages.
I thank the Lord for the mighty work that was done through him for His glory. I thank the Lord for the Blessed Hope that one day I can meet him in Heaven. My heart felt condolences to the church members and to his dear family members. God bless you. We will definitely miss him until we meet him again.

September 06, 2007
Thank you! You will be missed. You were a true inspiration to all of us. I truly enjoyed and appreciated Sunday morning worship. Now that you have arrived at your heavenly home, may you be in glory forevermore.
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy lived his life by following the Great Commission in Matt. 28. His life was fully focused on making disciples of all nations and teaching what Jesus commands us to do. What an example! May God raise up multiple men like him to fill this vacancy in God's Kingdom on earth!
September 06, 2007
As so many fall away from the teachings of the Bible, Dr. Kennedy stood tall. He stood on the rock of his salvation and told others about the redeeming love of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

The truth of the Bible was his shield and his comfort. He will be missed here on earth but his steadfast faith will remain as a beacon to us who knew him.
September 06, 2007
Heaven is now home for this humble and truly dedicated servant of God. No more pain, no more sorrow - only joy now in the arms of Jesus.
He left such a great legacy that will go forward for many years to come.

Condolences to the family and love and prayers to all of you at Coral Ridge.
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy will be greatly missed. He was not afraid to speak the truth. My condolences to his family and church.
September 06, 2007
The world's loss is Heaven's gain. Enjoy the rest of eternity Dr Kennedy, as you fought the good fight, and you kept the faith. I can picture you being embraced by those nail scarred hands.
September 06, 2007
A believer, shepherd and theologian of conviction and distinction.
September 06, 2007
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy married my parents in 1971. He baptized my brother, sister and me as children. He spoke at my grandmother's funeral. He put so much love and support into Westminster Academy, which I attended K through sixth grade. He was a personal friend of my father, Jere Kaylor Young. He filled my mind and soul with the gospel and teachings of the Bible throughout my childhood in Ft. Lauderdale.
He was truly a spiritual giant and shimmered with the love of God visibly. His legacy and teachings will remain beyond all of our lifetimes. This world needs more people like him.
Now he is reaping the rewards of his life's work. Everyone knows that he is in the arms of Jesus right now. He is rejoicing with his friends and family who are already in heaven. Surely the Lord has a special purpose for Dr. Kennedy there.
I pray that his family will be comforted during this painful time in their lives. It is so great to know that we will all be together in paradise for eternity.
September 06, 2007
My condolences goes out to the family and church of Dr. James Kennedy...I have watched him for years on TBN and have learned a lot from him about my salvation, my growth with Jesus Christ...I will continue to pray for each of you and I will never forget him...May God continue to give the family and the church the strength to get thru this time of sorrow...I know I will see him again in Heaven...
September 06, 2007
I had the pleasure of knowing Jennifer Kennedy Cassady for several years. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time of their loss.
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy Changed my family's life and was a huge part of my childhood growing into a young christian man. I sang in the Kings Choir and the Choral Ambassadors and attended Westminster Academy for elementary school. He had a profound affect on my life. He changed so many lives. He was an incredibly intelligent man and so astute in his field, he also had a sharp sense of humor. I will never forget Dr. Kennedy and he will live in my soul forever. I am so honored to be apart of what he brought to Christianity. This was an amazing individual. You will be missed but never forgotten. I miss those Sundays looking up at you preaching and teaching us all. He was always so professional and courteous. As a young boy he would come to me and greet me. Incredible. THank you dr. Kennedy for molding me to be the person I am today and thousands upon thousands of more people. You truly were human greatness. My thoughts and prayers go out yo the Kennedy's. Today is a day for him to be with Jesus and for him to "Rejoice and be glad in it!"
September 06, 2007
Jim Kennedy was one of three or four of us who were extremely close as friends when we were students at Columbia Theological Seminary from 1956-1959. We suffered together through the teachings of liberal and neo-orthodox professors. He was determined to show that Christian conservatives can be intellectually astute, proving it by graduating Cum Laude.
Those of us who have known him through many years mourn his loss but celebrate his gain.
September 06, 2007
yOU WERE A ROLE MODEL FOR ALL AMERICANS GOD BLESSYOU
September 06, 2007
I will always give God praise and thanksgiving for such a devoted man of God, as Dr. Kennedy was, and for his efforts in fulfilling the Great Commission.
September 06, 2007
Thank you for being such a Godly man. Thank you for preaching and teaching the absolute truth. You are loved and will be greatly missed. However, for those of us who are in Christ, we will see you again.
September 06, 2007
He will be deeply missed.
September 06, 2007
Our sincere condolences to the Kennedy family. Dr. Kennedy has greatly influenced our lives, and I feel as if I've lost a close personal friend even though we never had the opportunity to meet here on earth. I look forward to that opportunity when we all are gathered home to be with the Lord. Truly, the world has lost a great treasure, but we are all richer for having known Dr. Kennedy. Our prayers are with the family, and in days to come you can rejoice, knowing what a grand entrance our dear friend and family member has made into the portals of Heaven! God Bless You All!
September 06, 2007
Rev Kennedy was one of the leading Christian leaders of our time. He was one of only a few who could defend the Christian origins of our nation. He truly stood in the gap. We will all miss his leadership.
September 06, 2007
Your Race Is Now Run,
May God Bless And Keep You
Loyal And Faithful Servant.

What a blessing to watch his TV messages from Sunday to Sunday. He was one of our favorite preachers. We are going to miss him so much.
September 06, 2007
Dr Kennedy was an inspiration to our family though his television ministry. My father spent a week taking the training presented by Dr Kennedy. He was very dedicated to the program and tried to live his life by it.

thank you for sharing him with the christian world
September 06, 2007
Dear Jennifer,

I was a old friend in high school at Gangway (1978-1980).

I just got news of your father's arrival into glory, and though I rejoice for him, my heart is sad for you and your mother.

I pray that your Heavenly Father would lessen the ache and restore you, as only He can.

Your dad's ministry was instrumental in my responding to the Gospel and following Christ and I will always be grateful.

May God bless you and keep you.

Your sister in Christ.
September 06, 2007
I am sincerely sorry about the death of Dr. D. James Kennedy. Although I have left the faith, I always tried to tune in to his Sunday show to find out what what the religious right was up to. Although I didn't agree with him most of the time, I liked him as a person and I wish his family well.

The Loyal opposition
September 06, 2007
Truth of Dr. Kennedy WILL prevail in due time. The world has lost a great champion for Christ, but his efforts will continue to grow.
September 06, 2007
Dr Kennedy's influence ranged far beyond the walls of his church. I never met Dr. Kennedy, yet through his radio program, I was a student of his for many years. His knowledge of the Scripture and his clarity in expousing its principles will be missed. Heaven rejoices at his homecoming! As do all who were influenced by him.
September 06, 2007
I am a member of the LDS Church. I often watched Dr Kennedy on TV and shared many of his thoughts and spritual ideas he is a great force for the betterment of mankind, I do miss him.
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy has surely witnessed the fulfillment of this scripture:

"Eyes have not seen, ears have not heard, nor minds have conceived what God has prepared for those who love the Lord. I Corinthians 2:9"
September 06, 2007
I praise and thank my God through Jesus Christ for Dr. Kennedy. It is through his ministries (EE, CRM, and CRPC) that both my wife and I were brought to saving faith in Christ Jesus. Now, we are enjoying an abundant life in Christ as members of CRPC and parents of 3 (soon to be 4) Westminster Academy students. Dr. Kennedy truly lived out his saying, "Excellence in all things and all for the glory of God!"
September 06, 2007
May God Bless the family and church family of Dr.Kennedy,earth's loss is heaven's gain wait on us and direct us all,until we join you,rest in peace brother,and rejoice forever and forever amen.

Dr. Kennedy's work for Christ will continue long after his departure. He was a gallant warrior for the faith. I'm sure he's already heard "well done, good and faithful servant." We are grateful for his faithful ministry and will miss him.
September 06, 2007
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy turned me onto the true pilgrim's path of Reformed Theology, and I was never disappointed in his radio and television presentations, but had my horizons extended many times by his insights. May the Lord of Glory comfort Dr. Kennedy's family.
September 06, 2007
God has used you so mightily to equip the next SEVERAL generations of believers to be salt and light to this fallen world. You finished the race with honors!! Well done thou good and faithful servant.

September 06, 2007
Well done good and faithful servant.
Welcome Home.

We watched Dr. Kennedy on TV and also went to his church several times when we lived in South Florida. He was a great man and will be terribly missed. He certainly fought for what he believed in and the truth.
September 06, 2007
A true inspiration, a soldier of Christ who served well. Well done thou good and faithful servant.
September 06, 2007
And Jesus will say, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant." Dr. Kennedy's adherence to the Word of God never wavered, and he practiced what he preached. With deepest sympathy to Mrs. Kennedy, daughter Jennifer and family. Till we meet again....
September 06, 2007
To Dr. Kennedy's family and all who loved him,

He started with a passion for the lost and then moved on into other levels to which the Lord called him. We owe him a debt that can only be paid by being likewise obedient to what the Lord is telling us to do. I look foward to seeing this great warrior in his rewards.

Respectfully,

Sincere sympathy to all who loved Dr. Kennedy.
September 06, 2007
In the song "Thank You" Ray Boltz sang about people who do not realize the contribution to the Kingdom they have made. Dr. Kennedy has been instrumental in leading millions to Christ; and his "Thank you's" have only begun.

Thank you Dr. Kennedy for your faithful service to His Kingdom, and the tool for shraing the gospel, "Evangelism Explosion" you left us.
September 06, 2007
No bond is as great as that between a parent and child. My deepest condolences are with you as you grieve.

May God be with Mrs. Kennedy and family during this time of loss. Dr. Kennedy was a true inspiration to me and I thoroughly enjoyed hearing him preach. He really told it like it was, and God blessed him for it. Earth's loss is truly heaven's gain.
September 06, 2007
Have you come to a place in your life, where you know for sure, if you died tonight you would go to heaven? Thank you, brother, for helping/training others to share in an effective and clear way the Gospel of Christ and the path to Salvation. I look forward to meeting you in heaven someday as we rejoice in the presence of the Lord our God, Jehovah, Creator of heaven and earth.
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy brought me to Christ at the age of 40 after watching his TV Ministry. I had the honor of being Baptised by Dr. Kennedy on a beautiful evening just before Christmas. Thank You Dr. Kennedy. Because of you, my life now belongs to Christ.
September 06, 2007
I was a student at Westminster Academny the first year the school opened, and an attendee at Coral Ridge. I can honestly say that Dr. Kennedy had a profound effect on my life. Thirty-six years later I still enjoy watching him on t.v. from my home in NC. It's awesome to think that he is standing in the presence of the Lord. My heartfelt sympathy to Mrs. Kennedy and Jennifer, but I know they have the wonderful promise of being reunited with him in Heaven.
September 06, 2007
Well done-now dance with Jesus.
September 06, 2007
The Christian church has truly lost one of the most influential Christian leaders of our time. His impact on the church and culture will be felt for many years to come. My prayer is that all Christians will follow his example and be a witnes to a lost world. May our precious Lord wrap his everlasting arms around his wife and daughter. God Bless you all!!
September 06, 2007
Thank you Dr. Kennedy for standing up for Biblical truth while most of the church at the time was to affraid or intimidated to. You will be sadly missed but your message will go on.
September 06, 2007
I wish to pay my heartfelt respects to the family of Dr. D. James Kennedy, a man whom I greatly admire for his passionate, eloquent, and scholarly voice he raised for virtually 5 decades to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ, and to educate and strengthen the family and society. I am deeply humbled as I contemplate the legacy of this man that lived with such passion and integrity; truly Dr. Kennedy was a faithful servant of the Lord to his generation.

Although two great, world-class voices are silent today, it is the recordings of Dr. D.James Kennedy's voice that I shall most passionately recommend to those in my circle of influence.

Godspeed!
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy was the quintessential example of a real man of God. He was a gentleman and Christian scholar of great intellect, had a great sense of humor as well as being an encouraging man of God. He was one of my favorite pastors and I thank the Lord for giving him to us for these many years. While many Pastors and Christians have detached the head from the heart and reason from revelation Reverend Kennedy knew the value of careful study and sound reasoning. I am grateful to God for his vision and commitment to excellence in Christian education. He was unique and his defense of the Faith will sorely be missed.

He is where he preached of many a times -- seeing the face of the one he loved most...Jesus. He is with God, and one day we will see him again. As the Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 5:8 said...Absent from the body, present with the Lord. I am sure the Heavens Rejoice with the arrival of D. James Kennedy. May God bless, comfort and keep his family, friends as well as his congregation and his ministry. I pray that the Lord blesses Coral Ridge with another great leader.

Thank You Father and thank you Reverend Kennedy for your service and most assuredly part of your epitaph will read "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day..." (2 Timothy 4:7-8, KJV)
September 06, 2007
I disagreed with Dr. K on a number of theological issues. I disagreed with his fixation with anti-communism and later with his "Reclaiming America." Once he dropped everything to spend over 6 hours with me in his office patiently discussing those differences. Even with all those unresolved issues when we were done he prayed with me and called me "brother." He did earn my lifelong respect.

Goodbye for now dear brother Jim.
September 06, 2007
The church and the United States will be indebted for years to come for the tireless efforts of Dr. Kennedy to call this nation to repentance and truth. This Christian statesman will be missed!
September 06, 2007
Dr. D. James Kennedy was a man who wanted see Christ and his teachings be put back in the public sphere. He encouraged christians to be bold and to know that all they have done was not in vain because christ has allready won the victory. My prayer is that the Kennedy Family take comfort in knowing he is with King Jesus.
September 06, 2007
Rest in peace dear friend.
September 06, 2007
As friends from St. Ambrose parish, we were blessed many times to hear Dr. Kennedy, lastly on Dec.24, 2006, his last service. Our prayers go out to the family, but know he is with our Lord.
September 06, 2007
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Dr. Kennedy. We praise God for granting him the Lord's victory. He was a great Christian who loved others more than himself. What a wonderful example and legacy to leave us all.
September 06, 2007
A most articulate and wonderful messenger of God. I will miss him.
September 06, 2007
September 06, 2007
To the famly of mr kennedy: please draw comfort from the Bible where we are told that there will be a resurrection of the righteous as well the unrighteous(acts24:15).please draw from this Bible message.
September 06, 2007
We have watched D.James Kennedy on TV for years and were blessed and thankful for the way he stood up for truth and righteousness. We truly miss him but know he has finished the job the Lord had set for him. We grieve with his family but also rejoice that he now sees the face of Jesus, his faith has brought him home. God Bless his family, and God Bless America.
September 06, 2007
What a blessing Dr. Kennedy has been in my life through his ministry at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church.He will never be forgotten. He has heard the words "Well done, good and faithful servant!" We will miss you.
September 06, 2007
I know as a believer I should not live in the fear that I live in, and one of those fears was to lose a man like Dr. Kennedy. I pray that someone will have the power and the knowledge and be blessed by God to take up where Dr. Kennedy left off. I feel a loss without you Dr. Kennedy, you were a man of integrity in a world of lies. Thank you for your time here and I will hopefully meet you in heaven someday.
September 06, 2007
May our great Creator-God and Father reveal His glory at this time through these expressions about Dr. D. James Kennedy. Dr. Kennedy was, in my opinion, Minister of the Gospel to the United States of America. He faithfully called this nation to repent and seek God with all our hearts, all our souls, all our might, and all our strength. May our gracious, merciful Heavenly Father bless and comfort the Kennedy family. Thank you, Father-God, for the presence of this Your precious servant D. James Kennedy for so many years.
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy:
Our prayers and thoughts are with your family at this time. Thank you for being such an important part of our lives.
Jeffrey, Candace and Clayton Early
September 06, 2007
Thank you Dr. Kennedy.You will be missed here.
September 06, 2007
No ordinary person will be capable of taking up the mantle of this man of God. Few can show such courage, dignity, love, and humbleness of heart. He shall be sorely missed. Let us all remember to pray for those who attempt to fill this void.
September 06, 2007
The lost will be felt greatly but we are rejoicing with the angels at your arrival home.
September 06, 2007
To the Kennedy family:
I want you to know how much Dr. Kennedy blessed my life with his radio program. Few can eminate his passion for reclaiming America for Christ. Also, many years ago, my Dad was blessed by being able to take part in Evangelism Explosion. Dr. Kennedy shall be greatly missed, but at the same time we have to rejoice that he is in heaven with the God he so loved.
September 06, 2007
Dr Kennedy was an inspiration. An effective defender of the faith and of the founding principles of America. Surely, he was doing the Lord's work in an increasingly hostile society.
September 06, 2007
You will truely be missed. You have done so much for the good of the people.

Sincerely,
September 06, 2007
I took all the training I could get in EE and have found it so valuable and basic in my 44 years of ministry. He who asked if one would appear before God, now has.
September 06, 2007
No amount of praise I could give would begin to approach that which he has already received from his Master: "Well done, my good and faithful servant."

I'll see you when I get there, doc.
September 06, 2007
Give Honor To God
May God keep and lift,
your family in the
name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

As I befriended Margaret Barnhouse, widow of the great Dr. Donald Grey Barnhouse, she told me the delightful story about Dr. Kennedy's conversion after hearing one of Dr. B's sermons about "on what basis would a great God let you into His Heaven?" Am sure the details are sketchy, but the bottom line was a close bond between Dr. & Mrs. Barnhouse and Dr. Kennedy. Thus I always felt a bit closer to Dr. Kennedy as I became very close to Margaret Barnhouse in the 1990's. She, too, entered Heaven in August of 2000. May your grief be softened some with the knowledge of so many lives being so touched by Dr. Kenndedy's ministry for so many years. Just sorry I never got to meet him in person and tell him about Mrs. Barnhouse's love for him. She'll tell him herself now.
September 06, 2007
The Rev. Kennedy was a great American and a great man of god. I am sure that he has now been welcomed home.
September 06, 2007
Dear Mrs Kennedy and Jennifer:

I send my sincere condolences on the loss of your husband and father. Dr Kennedy touched my life so profoundly in 1997 with his sermon, "Will the Church Forget?" It galvanized me to begin to speak out on the moral issues of the day. In my mind, he was the moral conscience of this nation, a true man of God, and I know Jesus met him with open arms and said, "Well done, my good and faithful servant."
September 06, 2007
What a wonderful Godly man. We will all miss him exceedingly. Dr. Kennedy influenced my life via Evangelism Explosion, his wonderful sermons that confronted wrongs in society directly and didn't shy away from tough issues, his wonderful personality, trueness to God's word in action and deed, and through proteges such as George Grant and Gary DeMar. Loved and missed!
September 06, 2007
Go with God, Dr. Kennedy. You have been a wonderful inspiration to Christians everywhere. We will all miss your common sense, Spirit- anointed messages. Thank you for your service to our Lord.
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy was one of the most influential and inspiring Christians in our lives. He was truly a father in the faith and a great apologist. While he will be sorely missed by those of us he has left behind, he is awash in the glory of God; welcomed by the light of Jesus Christ. Our thoughts and prayers to his family. For King and Kingdom, Dr. Kennedy! We will meet again. With love,
September 06, 2007
May God comfort Dr Kennedy's wife and daughter.He was a wonderful Pastor,,,always standing by what he believed to be right according to the Bible. How could we NOT miss such a person.
September 06, 2007
My deepest sympathies to the family of Dr. D. James Kennedy. I never met him or attended his church, but I did learn Evangelism Explosion from him, and God used this program to lead my wife and many others to Christ. Great, indeed, will be his reward in heaven.
September 06, 2007
Mrs. Kennedy and family,

Dr. Kennedy's words still reverberate in my ears and that of my family. We did not have the distinct pleasure of knowing him long and that is our misfortune. He spoke deeply, sincerely and lovingly about our Lord and our place in the world. We have been honored to listen to him speak in person as well as on TV when we could not attend the regular services. He has inspired our son to be more than just "of" the world but "in" the world. We all recognized his dynamic spirit and spirituality and while we will miss him we are sincerely joyous for him to be with Our Father in Heaven. Thank you for your gift of Dr. Kennedy to the people as well. May the Lord Bless you and keep you. May the Lord make his face to shine upon you and give you Peace.

The Garland Family

I am saddened at the passing of Dr Kennedy. I am an avid watcher of the Coral Ridge Hour and his ministry has brought me much comfort and awareness of my relationship with Jesus. He is now in Heaven with his God .
September 06, 2007
Dear Anne - we have relocated to The Villages, Fl. but read the local news everyday and we were so sorry about your beloved husband - we enjoyed our tennis games with you two. Our thoughts are with you and your family.
September 06, 2007
Thank you for your teachings. Heaven is rejoicing.
September 06, 2007
September 06, 2007
While I am truley saddened by Dr. Kennedy's passing, knowing well that he, as founder of all the schools, has himself acheived his last graduation to be rewarded many crowns and at home in the Kingdom of our LORD JESUS. amen!
September 06, 2007
He fought the good fight, finished the course and kept the faith. Now he can rest in the loving arms of his savior.
September 06, 2007
Dr Kennedy,

My Sunday mornings won't be the same. Thanks for all the great work. I am a Catholic and lo and behold, you are more Catholic than most of our pastors, esp our bishops. May God hold you close!
September 06, 2007
I'M A PRESBYTERIAN WHO ENJOYED WATCHING AND WORSHIPING WITH CORAL RIDGE ON TV - ESPECIALLY WHILE MY MOTHER WAS IN THE NURSING HOME. MY SYMPATHY TO THE FAMILY.
September 06, 2007
Every time I heard him defend America the way I would like to have it remembered, I was warmed. My wife and I who home-church are saddedned by the nation's loss. We look forward to joining him one day with Our Lord, Jesus Christ.
September 06, 2007
Even now, I start every morning proclaiming that "This is the day that the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it." Of course, I don't have the booming voice of Dr. Kennedy!! Til eternity ...
September 06, 2007
Thank You for your service in Christ,many have come to Know Jesus as a result of your ministry. Only eternity will reveal the magnitude of your effort. See you in Glory
September 06, 2007
Thank you, Dr. Kennedy for your ministry. The world lost someone that it desperatly needed.
September 06, 2007
DEAR JAMES D. KENNEDY AND FAMILY
OH I SAY THAT A LOUD CLAP OF THUNDER BOUNDED ACROSS THE SKY AND
A PIERCING LIGHT LITE UP THE HEAVENS
AND A GUSHING FORTH OF WATER UPON US
FELL FOR GOD IS CRYING; HIS TREMENDOUS HEART IS BREAKING IN TWO
September 06, 2007
Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.
September 06, 2007
"Here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come." (Heb. 13:14) Thank God for a faithful minister of His Word without hesitation.
September 06, 2007
He will be missed. My sympathies to his family and his church family and friends.
September 06, 2007
We extend our deepest condolences to Anne and Jennifer.

You touched my life daily, my Brother, and for many years dating back to the time our neighbor and close friend Paul became one of your assistants.... You were the right man at the right place at the right time and will be sorely missed. Your Christian guidance and love of the Lord will be missed by all who love the Lord.

We who are left behind will endeavour to carry on His works as you have taught us.
September 06, 2007
I pray that Dr. Kennedy's family will be encouraged by the memory of his utter faithfulness to the Lord Jesus. He was a great man of God and a model for us all.

"O grave, where is thy victory?"
September 06, 2007
Thank you for your work,your passion, and your gentle love of your family and of the savior.
September 06, 2007
We will all miss him, but we'll keep reaping from all God's great works through him! What TREMEMDOUS IMPACT HE HAD ON AMERICA & THE WORLD! He is certainly happy now and has great rewards which will continue to accumulate! Our prayers are with his loved ones!
September 06, 2007
A great Christian teacher and orator. A staunch defender of the word of God. Heaven help us to nuture the coming generation of Godly young men such as Dr.Kennedy.
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy surely has a special place in Heaven. He always had a positive and meaningful message every Sunday morning. It is sad to see one of the great leaders of the faith pass on, as he is surely needed today. God Bless his family and be with them.
September 06, 2007
I loved that man..he did so many things for the church in the name of Christ..he told it like it was and was never phony. he is going to be greatly missed, because he was so needed! He, Adrian Rogers, and Jerry Falwell, and others are recently gone. I feel this is a bad omen for our country. What is this supposed to mean????? It may be close to the end?????? Who will be powerful enough to take up the slack? I feel for his family and the whole nation because he is gone. I was really concerned when he didn't come back to preach and the organization didn't give much information. And what I feared was true.
September 06, 2007
America has lost a great man. I am sure that he will be in the forefront of Christ's Army when he returns. Joe Krill, Delmont, Pa.
September 06, 2007
Anne- Thank you for being my EE trainer. It is not possible to say in a few words the many ways you and Dr. Kennedy have touched our lives. We will continue the EE ministry whereever we go. God bless you and your family. Love in Christ.
September 06, 2007
What a blessing Dr. Kennedy was to this country! We are so grateful for his ministry. I've been to his church many times over a 25 year period. I will never forget the first sermon I heard in person "LIVING LIFE WITH A CAPITAL L". It was a message that deeply touched my heart. The first time I heard his voice boom from the back of the church as the church service began "THIS IS THE DAY THAT THE LORD HAS MADE - LET US REJOICE AND BE GLAD IN IT!", I felt it was God's voice echoing throughout the sanctuary. This world has lost a great voice, but we are so blessed to have his many video and audio recordings that will be shared on Christian radio forever. His voice lives on as does he in a much better place with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To be free of all pain and suffering. We here will miss him deeply, but we WILL see him again for eternity. Well done, good and faithful servant. My deepest sympathy to his wife Ann and daughter Jennifer and her husband at their great loss. We grieve at our loss, but celebrate his new life in heaven!
September 06, 2007
A truly great Christian and American has passed on to be with his LORD and Saviour. He will be missed but others must take up his torch and continue the race. May God bless and keep his eartly family and grant them the peace that only He can give
September 06, 2007
Dear Anne and Jennifer,

Dr. Kennedy has been a blessing and example to us for many years. We watched him on TV on a regular basis. When we moved to South Florida 10 years ago, we chose CRPC as our church and worshipped there until we retired. May the Lord richly bless you as you remain faithful to God's Word.

Love in Christ,
September 06, 2007
Anne-May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow. My family has been so blessed through your ministry.
September 06, 2007
I will always cherish the memories that I have of the sermons, preaching and teachings of Dr. James Kennedy. The presence of God was always so comforting when bowing with him in prayer. That is when I had my strongest desire for all of those I loved to experience exactly what I felt. May God continue to love and bless the church and the family that Dr. Kennedy left behind.
September 06, 2007
This is a man who was truly a vessel of honor. His influence and productivity in the Kingdom will not fade. What an example for all of us. Stay the course. Godspeed, Rev. Kennedy, we will carry on.
September 06, 2007
One of the greatest defenders of our Constitution and our faith whose ministry inspired us all to copy the example of Christ and our Founding Fathers; he is greviously missed and we are all diminished. Absent the body , present with our Lord.
September 06, 2007
My heart and prayers go out to family and friends during this time. I fondly remember watching Rev. Kennedy on TV while I was growing up. He was and is a true inspiration. God Bless.
September 06, 2007
Dear Family & Friends,
Our prayers are with you all during this difficult time. We thank the LORD for the ministry He gave to Dr. Kennedy and for his faithfulness to that call. "To be absent from the body is to be present with the LORD."
Pastor Brett Jones & The Calvary Bible Church family in Venice Florida.
September 06, 2007
D. James Kennedy has finished this earthly life serving and glorifying his Lord Jesus Christ. God his creator gifted him with many talents which he humbly yielded back to God's will and service. His preaching of God’s word revealed a strong faith always communicated with the finest of language skills. He is one of America's greatest patriots. He appeared at all times to be a Christian gentleman. May God comfort and strengthen his family and friends. We are saddened by his departing, but we rejoice that he is at home with his Lord.
September 06, 2007
My heart is thankfull for such a great Pastor that will stand up for what the Bible tells us. He always told life as it is. He has help America thru the Holy Spirit. May Rev. D. James Kennedy rest in peace with our Savior Jesus Christ for ever. As it is written.

Brother in Christ,
James F. Schaller
September 06, 2007
Well done thou good and faithful servant!
September 06, 2007
"Well done, thou good and faithful servant."

Dr. Kennedy is the singular reason why I became an avid fan and defender of this nation's Christian heritage. His sermons about America's early history were always passionate and informative. I am sad that he has passed from this world, but I am also joyous that he is now in the loving embrace of his Lord and Savior. Hallelujah!
September 06, 2007
Thank You for bringing the kingdom closer to us........
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy has been for me a constant example of integrity and spirituality. During my 18 years as pastor of the First Baptist Church of West Hollywood, Florida, his life and ministry inspired me. I will miss him and so will all who long for clarity and truth.

September 06, 2007
Anne and Jennifer you are in my thoughts and prayers. Dr. Kennedy will be missed by so many whose lives he touched.
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy was an incredible teacher with a true gift for relating what God's word has for us. It is sad that he is gone now, but he is with the Lord he loved so much and I look forward to seeing him one day in heaven. Thank you to the Kennedy family for sharing this wonderful man with us for so many years. He has been a blessing in so many ways.
September 06, 2007
You will be truly missed by your faithful. You now belong to the ages.
September 06, 2007
Dear Kennedy family,
I am sorry for your loss. He won hearts of millions. He will be known forever as the man who appears on television and people tuned in instantly recognize him. He is one of the kind. God bless him and his family.
September 06, 2007
I loved this preacher's sermons and have many saved to my pc. My condolences to his family. May the Lord comfort and bless them at this time. I know that Dr. Kennedy is now singing praises with the angels.
September 06, 2007
I thank God for his life, he left a wonderful legacy to us. My condolences to his wonderful family.
September 06, 2007
I will miss Dr. Kennedy greatly. He was a true Christian, and a great person. I was fortunate to know him, when I took lessons on the organ from Diane Bish, in the old church, and in the new one. He was a prince!
September 06, 2007
Words cannot begin to describe the impact you have made on countless lives. We cherish the memories, and can embrace a brighter tomorrow, because of Rev. Kennedy's work and legacy. We miss you, we love you and we pray special condolences to all the family and friends. May God bless the Kennedy family and continue to lead, guide and bless, the many vital programs so dear to D. James. He made his contribution, invested his talents, and has gone Home.
September 06, 2007
Impatiently I waited for D.James return to the pulpit but now we have to wait until Christ returns. We rejoyce for him but mourn for the loss here on earth. Soon we will see you again; you fought the good fight.
September 06, 2007
Thank you for your blessed ministry and for giving so much joy and peace to so many people. We have the knowledge that you are in The Presence Of The Lord. You will be greatly missed. Till we Join you again.
September 06, 2007
I never got to see you in person, but I did see your program many times on tv. I am so thankful that you stood up for what you believed in, and spread the greatness of the Name of the LORD to everyone you came in contact with. Your witness will live on in the lives of the many who were inspired by your words and life. All glory to the Lord Jesus Christ.
God bless your family in this time of sadness.
September 06, 2007
OUR PRAYERS ARE FOR ANNE AND JENNIFER.
September 06, 2007
Brother you will be sadly missed, but you have finished the Good Fight. The love of JESUS you now are experiencing in a way you could never do here in this earthly body,YOUR JOY IS NOW FULL. I know you would not want to return to this earth even if you could once having experienced the Joy of being in the presence of THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. You have reached the home of all Born Again Christians, and I say PRAISE THE LORD! Thanks for the encouragement and Spiritual Food you left for me while Glorifing The LORD. Your Brother in Christ, Robert Briggs.
September 06, 2007
The world was not worthy of D. James Kennedy, a fearless and indefatigable servant of Christ. I personally grew in my faith under his teaching and the many equipping ministries, such as Evangelism Explosion, which he started. He steadfastly ran the race of faith with Godly dedication and commitment, a role model for all of us to follow.
September 06, 2007
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well-lived.
September 06, 2007
Dr Kennedy & his ministries greatly impacted my entire family. All members of my family were reached with the Gospel through his messages. Thank God for his life, vision and daily practice to follow Christ and his teaching. He has left a wonderful legacy but will be greatly missed by us all.
September 06, 2007
When I was first saved back in '94, living in Ft. Lauderdale, I attended Dr. Kenney's church. He is the first of my spiritual teachers who I love and admire. He will be greatly missed!
September 06, 2007
May God bless you now at this time or sorrow and keep you in his care forever.
September 06, 2007
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy was a lion in the modern Christian era and no doubt a hero to many. He will be greatly missed. May God be especially near to the Coral Ridge family at this time.
September 06, 2007
We loved him and will continue to support the ministry any6 way we can./

Our family sends its most humble and heartfelt condolences for the loss of this heroic Christian. His honest and faithful efforts have resulted in the expansion of the Lord's Church and he will not be replaced easily. May he now be blessed in the arms of the Lord Jesus.
September 06, 2007
Thank you Lord for this wonderful Christian Man who stood the test of time in his faithfulness to you. We are so grateful for his ministry.
September 06, 2007
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
September 06, 2007
Doctor Kennedy has been a great influence on my life. His insistance on communicating the truth of our nation's history has been so very valuable. I will miss his teaching and his comforting voice.
September 06, 2007
My sincere sympathy goes out to his family and all those who knew him and loved him. My family listened to him on t.v. occasionally and have always been moved by his sermons. I truly feel we have lost a General in God's earthy army. I pray God will raise up many more to take James Kennedy's place, we need them. I am deeply saddened by his passing. His family and congregation and ministry are in my prayers
September 06, 2007
We are eternally grateful for Dr. Kennedy and thankful that the Lord led us to Coral Ridge. He was a true servant of the Lord. God used him mightily and I pray God will continue to use the ministries Dr. Kennedy left behind, all for Gods glory. Our prayers are with Mrs. Kennedy and Jennifer and the whole Coral Ridge family - and praise God that Dr. Kennedy is now at home with the Lord, forever.
September 06, 2007
Pastor Kennedy,

You will be greatly missed by those of us who are still alive and sojourning on this earth, especially by me and my family, and by your brother's and sister's in Christ, we will all see you soon enough, when our Lord Jesus comes to bring us home to be with Him forever and together we will all rejoice. Blessings and peace to you for all eternity.
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy was a saintly pastor in a time of great danger to Christianity. He may be irreplaceable.
September 06, 2007
Dr. D.James Kennedy, one of the most brilliant men of our time, will be missed but his work will endure and his words of truth and wisdom will resound. May God bless and hold him in his hand forever.
September 06, 2007
The calm eloquence of his voice who proclaimed the Truth of Christ will be missed. May God comfort his loved one’s.
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy was a pillar in Christiandom ; we lost a powerful voice.It is soooo refreshing to have a leader who not only walked the walk,but talked the talk.Well done thou good and faithful servant!!
September 06, 2007
One less voice declaring "the Kingdom of God is at hand."
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy demonstrated how we should all prepare our study of God's Word. He was well-prepared, thorough and a wonderful communicator. He motivated me to deepen my studying. He will be missed. It is sad to see so many great men of God passing from this world (Falwell, Kennedy, an ailing Graham). I pray that some others will rise up to shine God's light.
September 06, 2007
Dr. and Mrs. Kennedy have had an outstanding influence in my life. I am what I am today because of the teaching and encouragement I received from Dr. Kennedy. I want to send my deepest sympathy to Anne and Jennifer.
September 06, 2007
I praise God for Rev. D. James Kennedy's unswerving commitment to the truth. His love for God and for the preaching of the gospel obviously came from the reality of Jesus Christ's transforming work in his own heart.
"And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither, and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. - Psalm 1:3.
September 06, 2007
I want Dr. Kennedy"s family to know the encouragement I received from his life and work. May God bless you in this time of parting.
September 06, 2007
THIS IS SO SAD ABOUT DR. KENNEDY. HE WAS A GREAT BIBLE TEACHER AND SO HONEST. HE IS NOW HOME WITH THE LORD. I SHALL PRAY FOR HIS CHURCH AND FAMILY. LOVE ALWAYS. YOUR SISTER IN CHRIST
September 06, 2007
Doctor Kennedy's radio broadcasts were directly responsible for my entry into the Kingdom.

I have often thanked God for his life, and pray for the sure comfort of our Father in heaven for his family.

I will always remember his tenacity and energy in standing for Jesus Christ.
September 06, 2007
It was with great sadness that I learned of your loss and want to express my sincere sympathies. Dr. Kennedy trusted Christ alone for his salvation. We could all say "He was a good man. Follow his example in caring for others."
September 06, 2007
I am saddened for the Global Christian Community because Dr. Kennedy was a steadfast leader and defender of our faith. His type of leadership is needed now more than ever.

On the other hand, I rejoice that he is with our father in paradise. I'm quite sure his guardianship of our faith will live on through the men and women he discipled and through our Lord's divine Grace.

We will miss you, Dr. Kennedy, and look forward to seeing you again in paradise.
September 06, 2007
Our country will sorely miss you and your courage to speak. I thank you for the knowledge you have left me. I thank you for being God's light to the nation. ruth waning, rotonda west,fl.
September 06, 2007
Dr Kennedy - Thank you for all that you have done. I was a student at Westminster in the early 80's. I wouldn't be raising my kids as I am now if it had not been for the education you provided me with back then! Mrs. Kennedy & Jennifer - my thoughts and prayers are with you both.

Dear family of Pastor Kennedy,
Your father has been a wonderful inspiration to me since I was a child. We lived off and on in Florida and each time we moved back, we attended your church. I always felt that Pastor Jim was one of the sincere, real preachers, like Billy Graham. Thank you for all of your wonderful work.
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy, you were a great man of God. I committed my life to Christ while watching you're program. You're newsletter help me stay grounded and active in the community.

Rest in peace, humble servant, see you soon!
September 06, 2007
Our deepest condolences to Dr. Kennedy's family.

Our Lord has promised that this sad parting is but temporary. Beyond the sunset, Dr. Kennedy is with our Lord where the saved in Him gather for joyful, eternal reunion.
September 06, 2007
Yours is a legacy we could all aspire to. You left the world better than you found it, and now you can rest in peace in the next one.
September 06, 2007
I thank and praise GOD ALMIGHTY for the life of Dr. D. James Kennedy.
He was a great soldier for JESUS CHRIST and words are inadequate to describe what a blessing he was to me and my family! Our hearts grieve his passing but KNOW he is more alive now than ever before!
What a welcome he must be receiving now. Mrs. Kennedy and the family will always be in our prayers.
September 06, 2007
Please accept our deepest sympathies.

I watched as Coral Ridge Church rose from the ground. I watched as the "master" spread his EE around the world. I will always remember the dance intructor who became Christ's greatest disciple. Life wihout him will be strange and very hard.
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy was a man ahead of his time when approaching head on the moral problems of our age. Had it not been for Dr. Kennedy's work, I believe that the moral fiber of our country would have been much more unraveled. Let us not forget his work. Let us continue to fight the good fight of faith as Dr. Kennedy did. God bless your family as you grieve over your loss of your husband and father.
September 06, 2007
Dr. James Kennedy, you touched my life so many times. You were a great man of God and now that your work is done here on this earth, God has called you home. Enjoy the presence of the Lord. I wish I could be a quater of the man you were. God bless you and may God bless your family and give them comfort.

We miss you, Dr. Kennedy. You have made a huge impact on our lives. My wife worked for The Center for Reclaiming America for Christ.

Thank you for your generous time you spent with us after church services.
September 06, 2007
Thank God for the gifts and blessings you have bestowed upon your people through using the life of Dr. Kennedy. May God grant him the eternal rewards promised to him in the Book he loved and proclaimed.
September 06, 2007
I have listen to Dr. Kennedy's Christ inspired messages for years on AFR. He's at home now with His Father in Heaven. Thank You Lord for his time on Earth.
September 06, 2007
My parents were part of the original 45 who attended the first services at McNabb elementary school in 1959. My father was a contractor on the church where it's presently located and set the steeple. He donated his office furniture to Dr. Kennedy. We were married in the church on Commercial Blvd. because the new church wasn't ready. I now live just a few houses away. Although I don't belong to the church, I still feel some sort of connection
September 06, 2007
Dear Dr. Kennedy's Family:
Dr. Kennedy was a blessing to me, and I look forward to meeting him in person with the Lord. God comfort you.
September 06, 2007
Thank you Lord for taking Jim Kennedy to help you to get YOUR WORLD once again back to recognizing that YOU are OUR LORD and CREATOR - and that ALL will again give you the LOVE and THANKS
for YOUR CREATION !
September 06, 2007
Dearest Anne and Jennifer,

He was truly a great man and had touched the lives of millions. I have heard people say that it is impossible to change the world just being one person ... but if we would live our life as Dr. Kennedy, we too, can and would have an impact on our world about us.

No, we may never have a pulpit ministry as he, but God didn't call us to be a "D. James Kennedy," He just called us to be who we are: a child of God. And we too can touch the life of someone around us.

God Bless You,
"Though I walk through the Valley of the Shadow of Death, I will fear no evil, for Thou Are There! ..."
September 06, 2007
Thanks for the devotion and selfless work! See you in the twinkling of an eye!
September 06, 2007
Thank You Dr. Kennedy, See you in heaven. Love Lee
September 06, 2007
I live down the street from the Coral Ridge church. Every Sunday morning I am given the chance to wake to the sounds of church bells. Thank you Rev. Kennedy for making that possible...and for making the world a better place when you left us.
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy spoke from his heart. He loved our country and stood up for his beliefs. More ministers and pastors should have his convictions and courage. He will be sorely missed.
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy will be greatly missed. His strong stand on Christian and American values will be remembered for years to come. America and the World has lost a great soldier of the faith.
September 06, 2007
Dr. D. James Kennedy: A voice for God, echoing through the ears of humanity, to the saved and unsaved. A servant whom God allowed to reach into the years of our lives, constructing memory markers, that will last and be remembered by generations to come. Thank you Dr. Kennedy for your ensuing desire to follow Christ and His righteousness.
September 06, 2007
So saddened that this earth has lost a truly dedicated preacher who wasn't afraid to lean on the Holy Spirit, & preach it just as it was..from
the Bible too. But praise the
Lord, Heaven has gained another
"faithful" servant for the Lord.
May God bless, & strengthen
this family even now...during its time of loss, & sorrow too.

"Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints." Ps 116:15. I praise God for Dr. Kennedy's unflinching commitment to speak the truth in love, to share with a dying world the words of eternal life. Dr. Kennedy has been an encouragement to me and so many others for many years. May the Lord richly bless Dr. Kennedy's family and the continuing work of the ministries he founded. May many, many more come to the Savior because of Dr. Kennedy's faithfulness.
September 06, 2007
A strident defender of the Faith, and stalwart, Dr. James Kennedy played an important role in my spiritual education as an adult Christian. I have been truly blessed to know him through his many written publications, and radio and television broadcasts. My prayers and love go out for him and his family. May we all, as believers in Christ, take solace in the knowledge that we will be re-united.
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy will be missed as a teacher and true believer in the Faith. Now he is at the side of Jesus enjoying the gift of Eternal Life
September 06, 2007
Why do we grieve when a giant like
Dr. Kennedy goes to his reward. Not because of what he is experiencing, but because of the loss we feel. I grieve, but have joy in my heart for Dr Kennedy as our Lord greets him and says well done.

Dr. Kennedy was a friend of creationists and a friend of creation. More than any other national leader he held to and boldly proclaimed the Biblical account of the creation and it's importance to our understanding of God and His Word. He gave me great comfort and courage to also share these things.

Your great work will live on for many

What a wonderful pastor and lovely example of what a servant of God should be like.
Dr. Kennedy will truly be missed by me and my family. Sadly the world has lost one of its true champions.
September 06, 2007
I was very saddened to hear about the passing away of somebody who loved the Lord with all of his mind, as well as his strength. He had a very keen intellect, and his sermons were often very thought-provoking. D. James Kennedy will be missed.
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy's ministry had a global impact for Christ which cannot be measured in human terms, but his job on earth was finished and he now rests in the arms of Jesus.....praise God!

I was on the way to work listening to FM88 the Promise in Jax, Fl when they told the news. I cried. He was a wonderful man of God, He will be missed. We will see him again and I take comfort thinking about the Wonderful Welcome he received in Heaven. I pray for his family and wife. He was loved by so many because of all he did and how he lived! God bless you dear Kennedy family.
September 06, 2007
You were a great Christian man. I learned a lot from your teaching. Rest in peace.
September 06, 2007
For years I have been blessed by Dr. Kennedy's messages. I am sad that no longer will I be able to be edified by his wise and learned instruction. A great man has fallen among us. Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord.
September 06, 2007
On this special day
We come together for support and pray
To put aside a world astray
To honor a mans legacy
To comfort this delicate family we share

Praising God for accompanying us here
On this special day


We envy the peace you now have
Rest well James Rest well

Good bye for now Dr. Kennedy. See you again in Heaven. You will be missed but not forgotten.
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy, Thank You for your service in the name of the Father. You helped change my way of thinking and living. Thank You for your love of America and shining the light of truth on our world today. Thank You Heavenly Father for letting us be in the presence of this man, D. James Kennedy, if only for a time.
September 06, 2007
I am so sad at the loss of Dr. Kennedy. I listened to him every Sunday morning and will miss his inspiration. The world has lost a faithful servant and Heaven has gained a saint.
September 06, 2007
A great voice is silenced but will not be forgotten. He inspired so many. My thoughts are with the family. I am very sorry for your loss.
September 06, 2007
Dr Kennedy was a faithful and dedicated follower of Jesus Christ. His passion for speaking the truth was inspirational. His influence will be greatly missed.

May each of you find comfort in the God of all Comfort during this time.

He promises that the day is coming in which he will wipe away the tears of sorrow from our eyes forever and death will be no more.
September 06, 2007
We have listened to Dr. Kennedy through his radio and television ministry for many
years. It was these ministries that got me and my family involved in reclaiming America for Christ and
understanding the need to "get involved".

We will miss him dearly!

We pray that the Lord blesses Coral Ridge with another great leader.

Mike Parks and family
September 06, 2007
The USA has lost a great leader in it's continuing struggle to "take back America" and D.James Kennedy
will be missed. May the Lord's comfort provide strength for all
who are affected by this loss.
September 06, 2007
Thank You for your firm stand and devotion to Christianity.You have been a light to the World.Your work here is done,but not forgotten.You will be missed by all who were touched by your message.
September 06, 2007
I have never been to his church but I was so blessed by his TV ministry I had to stop and say thank you. Heaven is richer today.
September 06, 2007
I had the privlege of being led to the Lord through the ministry of Dr. Kennedy by Rev. TM Moore, and going through the Evangelism Explosion training. It changed my life, and has affected so many others as well, since I have sought to serve the Lord. May God bless all who have served with, and through this faithful minstry. Dr. Kennedy "fought the good fight" and lived to "serve the Lord with all his heart." We will all see him again, when Christ returns for those of us who have believed in Him.

"Death is not the extinguishing of the light. It is putting out the candle because the dawn has come."

Thank You, and our prayers are for those who miss Jim now.
September 06, 2007
We are so grateful for Evangelism Explosion and the inspiring audio tapes we received for many years. Dr. Kennedy was an exceptional Christian leader. We are praying for you, Mrs. Kennedy and Jennifer in your loss of a wonderful person. He is with the Lord now and reaping the rewards of a life well lived.
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy was one of God's most faithful. I studied his Evangelism Explosion in the early 80's. I have listened to many of his sermons and he was always right on. May God comfort his family and close friends
September 06, 2007
More than 20 years ago, I sat in Dr Kennedy's office and told him that, if he would start a seminary, I would be his first student. He was as good as his word and I am thankful for having been able to keep my end of the bargain. He was a scholar, a gentleman, and a wonderful and encouraging man of God.
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy was a true "soldier of the cross", a pioneer for the gospel in South Florida who took a stand against the enemies of Christ. Heaven rejoices at his arrival, and the world grows a little colder without him. The "Truths that Transform" program lifted me every day before my work day started, and gave me strength. May Jesus bless his family in their loss.
September 06, 2007
I look forward to seeing you in the land of the living. I thank God for the light He has given you.
September 06, 2007
He has achieved that "Greater Good", has left this world as a valiant soldier of the Cross. We thank God for his life.
September 06, 2007
Dear Ann and Family,
Dr. Kennedy will truly be missed. He was so very special to our family. His ministry has changed millions of peoples lives and he will be greatly rewarded for all the work he has done. God has welcomed another faithful servant home and Dr. Kenneth finished the fight and kept the faith. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time.

My deepest condolences for your loss. Without his vision I would not have had a Christian education. I remember attending church in a fire station, attending Christian school in a race track while the vision was being built. I remember climbing up the radio tower of the new church during construction. More importantly, I remember that whenever he got the chance, he shared that God loves us and that Christ died for us and rose that we might be with Him when we physically died. He taught EE that we might be able to share to others. Many books with his name on it helped not only new believers but were meat to other believers to defend the faith and our beliefs, that we might stand strong. He will be missed.
September 06, 2007
Dear Ann and Jennifer:
Mom called me yesterday morning with the news that Jim had gone to be with Jesus. Mere words can not begin to express our thoughts and feelings for him and for what you and your family have meant to us through the years. When you have had the wonderful privilege of growing up under Jim's ministry, and having your whole family being part of that ministry, as so many families have been at Coral Ridge, and seeing God use it to the reach the world for Christ it has been an incredible blessing that will be with us forever. I can only imagine all the Saints who were there to greet him when he went to Heaven, and I know Dad, Gene, was there among them. May God, through the Holy Spirit, grant you His Peace and His Presence.
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy interviewed me several times for his radio and television programs. He even called once or twice to just give me a word of encouragement.

Dr. Kennedy was a good man, an example of what a real man of God should be.

My heart aches as a dear friend and teacher is gone - yet he is in a place that he preached about many a time -- seing the face of the one He loves the most: Jesus.
September 06, 2007
We will not see Dr. Kennedy yet for a little while. He was a good and faithful servant. God bless and keep his family, his congregation and his TV congregation.
September 06, 2007
The world looses a giant light.
September 06, 2007
This man really knew how to deliver the word of God. Obviously the world is a much darker place without him. May God comfort his family and friends.
September 06, 2007
My family loves Dr. Kennedy and we extend our deepest regards to his family on his passing on to glory. He was a inspiring and Spirit-filled Christian.
September 06, 2007
Dr Kenndy was indeed an inspiration. He will be greatly missed. He was a 4 star General in God's army. May God go on blessing him and his work.
September 06, 2007
Jim Kennedy, I believe was the greatest apologist for the gospel that I have ever heard. His ministry has impacted millions. His defense of the spiritual roots of this nation makes him one of the greatest patriots of all time. Kennedy a force to be reckoned with by Satan has fought the good fight and has now received his reward. Jim you will be greatly missed.
September 06, 2007
May God have mercy on his soul. May the good Lord give peace and tranquility to his family.
September 06, 2007
After first hearing D.James Kennedy many years ago on radio and listening to him as often as possible I always felt I had a big, strong, wise brother in Florida.
I cannot find words to comfort his loved ones. No doubt grief is overwhelming. I can only express my feeling.....that we were given a gift from God in this man.
September 06, 2007
Our years at Coral Ridge were life changing. We are so grateful to God for Dr Kennedy’s vision and commitment to excellence in Christian education. The fruitfulness of WA is evident in each of our three children: Angela now teaching in a Christian school in Cambodia, Dawna Laurie impacting the arts for Christ in Canada’s capital, and Adam studying for the ministry and impacting people in Canada and Ukraine and aiming at career mission work. Our love and prayers to you Anne and Jennifer.
September 06, 2007
Reverend Doctor Kennedy was one of the most patriotic leaders of our time and his voice of freedom and constitutional rights will leave a void not easily filled by anyone on the horizon.
September 06, 2007
Praise be to God for sending Dr. Kennedy to minister to us. What a special legacy is left by men of God such as this. We rejoice in the sure hope of our promised salvation. Thank you, Dr. Kennedy, for proclaiming the gospel in clear and unwavering terms.
My sincerest sympathy to his family in this time of their earthly grief and heavenly rejoicing.
September 06, 2007
While his departure is a very sad event, we rejoice in the fact that he is now in Heaven, singing to the glory of Jesus.

September 06, 2007
Surely he is one of the best appologist of the Christian Faith. He had been one of my admirable preachers. He is unique and no one can fill his shoe.My sympathy to his family.
September 06, 2007
I came to faith in Christ under Dr. Kennedy's ministry. His teaching and encouragement and challenge to personal holiness is always with me. I can't wait to get to heaven and hug him and thank him again!
September 06, 2007
Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
September 06, 2007
We are thankful to our merciful God for men of godly character such as James Kennedy. He will be missed!
September 06, 2007
when you shared the Gospel, I finally "got it". You have been a blessing to me and my family. Your vision for Westminster Academy became a spiritual blessing for my children and many others. I know you are with the Master today.
September 06, 2007
Anne and Jennifer our prayers and thoughts are with you both. We will always hold dear the memories of Dr. Kennedy. The words "This is the day the Lord has made. Rejoice and be glad in it." will always touch our hearts. At least as Christians we know where he is, our loss and Heaven's gain.
September 06, 2007
Our condolencesgo go to his family and also to to the millions of followers who Dr D.J. Kennedy inspired with his mission of faith
September 06, 2007
To the Kennedy Family,
Dr. Kennedy, we have watched him on the television for years, from Michigan to Florida and back to Michigan. This is to say that no matter where we were on Sunday we searched the television to get his uplifting messages of God's unconditional love.
You all are in our prayers, "Earth has no sorry that heaven cannot and will not heal."
September 06, 2007
The world will miss his Christian influence and but his messages to bring salvation to others will live on. While we grieve his leaving, the Word of God says "Precious in the sight of God is the death of one of His saints." (Ps.116:15) He shall forever be with the Lord.
September 06, 2007
Dr. Kennedy's work is one of the inspirations for my own ministry. He knew that careful study, sound reasoning and the guidance of the Holy Spirit were crucial in both evangelism and apologetics. His defense of the Faith and of the culture we live in will be sorely missed. May God bless the family of this faithful servant of Christ.

I was extremely saddened to learn of the passing of the Reverend. D. James Kennedy.
Rev. Kennedy was truly a gracious humble human , his inspiration and manner was truly a gift of his ability to convey a message to all regardless of their birth beliefs, and faith.
May I offer my deepest sympathies to his beloved family and congregation.

What a Legacy he left. Growing up in S Florida in the early 60s, Jim Kennedy came to our house and led my parents and our whole family to the Lord. As such my father, Donald McArthur spoke to countless people of the Gospel of Christ. My Mother, Mary McArthur, has been a bible teacher for over 35 years having taught THOUSANDS the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Not only does she continue to teach adults, she now teaches
7th - 11th grade Bible class at South lake Christian Academy in Huntersville, NC. This year she will share the Glory of Christ with over 200 students.

My sister Ann has worked with countless disadvantaged & neglected children and has told many of her kids the story about the love of Jesus Christ.

I have 2 great kids, Christian and Daniel who both love the Lord and are learning about him every day at home and at their school South Lake Christian Academy.

I work with young people through sports. As a coach, I teach kids not only about the games they play, but about Christ and how he sacrificed for us & how we need to Glorify him in how we play sports and in all aspects of our life.

How many people have been changed by the Holy Spirit and committed their lives to Christ through the efforts of this one family ? Only Christ knows that answer......

But imagine how many countless thousands or millions of families were touched by the life of Jim Kennedy. Each one of these families, I am sure, has a similar story to tell.

His zeal to share the Gospel of Christ with all he talked to has indeed been multiplied countless times.

Anne & Jennifer.... You know the impact Dr. Kennedy had on the world.

His legacy is also your legacy. For I am confident that without your love and support for his ministry he may not have had the impact upon the world that he did. Take comfort that your support of his work did not go un-noticed by God.

Thank you Jim Kennedy for showing this one family the Glory and Majesty of a Life in Christ.

" Well done thou good and faithful servant...." Well done indeed.
September 06, 2007
America has lost one of its finest representatives of Christ and family. This is void that will not likely be filled. Well done good and faithful servant.
September 06, 2007
"But we will be changed in the twinkling of an eye and the dead in Christ will rise and then we who are alive will meet the Lord in the air and we will be with Him forever.." We shall meet again. May Our Father richly bless you in the time of grief.
September 06, 2007
no more pain but just JESUS gain you will be missed
September 06, 2007
30 ears ago this man influenced my life as a new Christian. Because of his evangelism course the Lord has used me to lead many to Jesus. Praise the Lord for D. James Kennedy.
September 06, 2007
A true man of God, Heaven has a wonderful addition, but he will be missed here greatly. His Remember Our Foundations sermon should be heard by every Christian. I consider him one of the greatest pastors I have ever heard, his sermons had a definite impact on my life. Condolences to the family.
September 06, 2007
Truly, a man of all seasons. He was an inspiration to us all as to what a servant of God is. May his example live on and may God use his legacy to keep bibically-minded Christians moving forward to the prize that will last for eternity.

God bless his family.
September 06, 2007

September 06, 2007
I felt blessed knowing someone of Dr. Kennedy's integrity and faith was speaking up for Christians in America. He has truly earned his heavenly rest.
September 06, 2007
I am very sad that Dr. Kennedy is't with us any longer, but happy for him to be where he preached about. His ministry has blessed me for over a decade. He made me think in new ways and want to be a more knowledgeable Christian.
September 06, 2007
Praise The Lord for this godly man, who will be sorely missed. Together with many more than can ever be counted, he lead me to Christ, this being in 2001. The best decision I have ever been encouraged to make. May he rest in blessed peace with his loving Saviour. My heartfelt sympathies go to his dear wife and daughter, and their wider family.
September 06, 2007

THANK YOU !

Today is a day of great celebration. If that were not true then Christianity would be a fraud. If we could not go out and party down then we have been duped in Christianity. Kennedy is going to enjoy his many, many eternal rewards at the Bema Seat . I wish I could trade places with him and get his rewards too. No sadness here, for Kennedy is truly happy today. As Christ writes through apostle Paul, "Absent from the body is present with the Lord. Kennedy is enjoying worshipping Christ today.
September 06, 2007
WE loved you but GOD LOVED YOU MORE. We were so blessed to have you .
September 06, 2007
Dr. D. James Kennedy was a man who knew God, a man of valor in these times of moral relativism. It is true that through one man God can change the world.
September 06, 2007
DR. KENNEDY WAS A TRUE CHAMPION OF THE FAITH AND OF CONSERVATISM. HE ALWAYS SHOWED CLASS AND GRACE, AND WILL BE SORELY MISSED.

OUR PRAYERS AND CONDOLENCES TO HIS WIFE AND DAUGHTER.
September 06, 2007
Rev.D James Kennedy was a Wise man full of passion that cared so much and gave so much.I am Thankful that I was one of many people who was able to enjoy his sermons.He will be missed by many.God bless him and his Family.
September 06, 2007
my condolences to the kennedy family, from someone who benefited greatly from this man's vision and life's calling
September 06, 2007
I will always treasure the time that Dr. Kennedy spent with me as a young Christian in Evangelism Explosion, his prayer with me for my future while I was in the U.S. Army, and his counsel after the death of my wife even though at that time I was living over a thousand miles from CRPC. His sermons and life offer me great encouragement to this day. Thank you, Dr. Kennedy, for making yourself available to allow God to bless others through you.
September 06, 2007
We will miss Dr. Kennedy. I learned so much with this wonderful man in E.E. and listening to his sermons from the pulpit. One day I was on a visitation with him to witness to someone who had requested to have someone come and share the gospel. I prayed with him in the car before we went into this home. It was wonderful to see how he presented the gospel and to see the women accept Christ. That's only one person, in his day he has lead so many to Christ. I know that he is in heaven and having a great time. I'm so happy I will see him again when it's my time
September 06, 2007
Peace be to your memory, and may God's peace surround and comfort your family and friends.

Many years ago, I and another Captain invited Dr. Kennedy to go Deep Sea fishing with us. He declined the invite and explained that he much preferred to spend his time "fishing for Mens souls"...He explained that as he caught them, God would clean them and that we on the other hand, had to clean our own catch...I did join the Coral Ridge Choir, which meant that I got to hear his sermons twice for many years. The choir served, at both Sunday Morning Services. My mother would have told you that I probably needed to hear those sermons twice. The last time she saw me before going home to be with the Lord, was after tuning in to watch an Easter Sunday Service from her home in Milwaukee. I know my life has been very positively influenced by the messages Dr. Kennedy delivered. He preached the truth, and he didn't candy coat it, as so many are willing to do today. I know today wasn't just another day in Heaven. I can see him arriving and I am trying to imagine him hearing those words he often quoted to others, "Well done my good and faithful Servant". Those of us who knew him, know that today, He heard those words from Jesus. It's hard to comprehend what he would be doing right now. Who would he talk to first? Wilberforce? Lincoln? Ruth Graham? With his love of History, and his fervor in studying and quoting the great teachers who proceeded him, I just can't imagine what he would do first. Needless to say, he is home, not through his works, but as he taught so many, through his belief that the only way to heaven was through his faith in the blood of Jesus Christ. Anne and Jennifer, I know his absence is hard to take. But find assurance that he is with God, and one day you will see him again.
September 06, 2007
By His grace God has used Dr. Kennedy to help lead our family to salvation, to baptise our children and to facilitate the education of our children at WA and us through his radio ministry. What a blessing he has been! We praise God for the gift of Dr. D. James Kennedy.
September 06, 2007
A Champion for Christ that always did the right thing. Dr. Kennedy always had the right word for you and cared about his people. His messages advanced the work of the Kingdom.He will be missed. My love and prayers are with you Ann and Jennifer. His work will continue for generations to come. To God be the Glory.

"Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints"

You'll be missed Brother Kennedy...
September 06, 2007
Dear Jen and Family, I worked as a Reservation Manager at the William Penn Hotel in Pittsburgh, Pa., in 1977, While going thru the guest list, I saw, Dr. Kennedy's name. He was in Pittsburgh for an event... I remember him from attending his church when I visited Ft. Lauderdale, I called your Dad and asked if I may upgrade his room, he was so kind, and thankful towards me, and I remember his hand touching my forehead and blessing me. He was such a great guy...I was thinking to myself, "I'm just happy to help you", and he was really helping me!
I married my sweetheart who lived in Ft. Lauderdale and little did I know that when I gave birth to my son in 1986, (21 years ago), your Dad would baptize our son....What a gift your Dad bestowed on our son.....It was a beautiful day at Coral Ridge and I will always be thankful that my son was received by your Dad...We can't replace your Dad, so we have to honor him....I too lost my Dad, and while it is difficult to get thru, they are not dead, they live with our Lord.....And it is true, we will see them again...Walk with the living and take care of your Mom. Your are a good kid...Your Dad was proud of you. God Bless,

Dr.Kennedy truly loved America and the beliefs that our "original" founding fathers established in this nation. I hope Dr. Kennedys' teachings and visions for this nation of America will be heeded and acted upon.
September 05, 2007
We praise God for the gift of such a brilliant mind, and example of love and sacrifice. Dr. Kennedy has shaped our lives in more ways than we can count. May we live our lives in such a way that his legacy will live on.
September 05, 2007
It was an honor and privelege to be employed by Coral Ridge TV and Radio Ministries.Dr. D. James Kennedy was a great teacher and a blessing to all that knew him. Dr Kennedy and his teachings changed my life.
He will be greatly missed. My prayers are for his wife Ann and his family.
September 05, 2007
September 05, 2007
Dr. Kennedy was an inpriation to me and so many others. I will always think of Him as a true man of God who led and presented the gospel to so many. Someone that was real. As I think of Him in Heaven with our Lord now I think of how happy He must be. I will miss him greatly. We have truly lost a great man of God and an awesome ministry, but God will heal all our hearts and bring us peace and to his wife and daughter my heart and prayers are with you and the church.
September 05, 2007
Anne, Jennifer and Chip:
"Only one life 'twill soon be past. Only what's done for Christ will last." What Christ has done through Dr. Kennedy will not be forgotten. May God's blessings and comfort be with you. We know where Dr. Kennedy is and we know we'll be seeing him again. How grateful I am that he was my pastor.
September 05, 2007
Was enlightened by his radio messages. They were the greatest! My deepest sympathy to the family and all who knew him.
September 05, 2007
Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
September 05, 2007
I will always remember Evangelism Explosion when I think of Dr. Kennedy and his legacy to share the love of God by leading others to Christ. I know the Lord is saying well done thy good and faithful servant and we can all agree with a hearty amen. I am friends with June and Bill Cox who have loved your family dearly for many years. We all share your families loss and will be praying for God's peace and comfort to sustain you at this time.
September 05, 2007
I worked for Dr. Kennedy as his evangelism secretary when we were still in the original church and also worked with the deaf members. As a result of his ministry, I accepted the Lord through CRBC so Dr. Kennedy and CRBC have a deep personal meaning to me. Even though I live away now, that part of my life will never be forgotten because of this wonderful man of God. May the Lord continue to watch over his family and the families of CRBC.
September 05, 2007
Dear Mrs. Kennedy and daughter, Coral Ridge Ministry and Church.
What a sad, sad day. Dr. Kennedy is one of two men in the world whom I admire the most. I will miss him. I pray that his work will continue and even multiply. We need his influence to continue throughout the world, and especially within the hearts of Christians. God bless and guide you all.
September 05, 2007
I just saw on the Internet... and I shouted, "oh my God"... We all, brothers and sisters in the Lord will miss him dearly... I usually wake up many times listening to him in my alarm clock... My deepest sympathy to his family, but he is finally home... See you there brother Kennedy... Welcome home!!!
September 05, 2007
Jim Kennedy never waivered in his faith and concern that others know the Lord. To this day I use his printed books and sermons as material for my classes when asked to teach. No doubt he's discussing the finer points of biblical history and God's will with Jesus even now. He will be missed.

September 05, 2007
Dr. Kennedy, you may not had the top of the christian broadcast media, but you where in my eyes. I will miss hearing your ministry, as well sorry that I never had a chance to sit in your chapel to hear a serman.

My prayer goes out to your family members and those who had close contact.

I do hope you are sitting on Jesus right side.

God Bless you!
September 05, 2007
What a man of God! Everytime I heard him on TV, I was fascinated by his sermons. His staunch conservatism was always a blessing and a breath of fresh air in these troubled times.
September 05, 2007
D. James Kennedy and WestMinister Academy! A great influence on our family and our Christian beliefs. Our prayers go out for the family, WA and C.R.P.C.
September 05, 2007

September 05, 2007
I grew up in Pompano Beach, Fl I will miss Dr. Kennedy.
September 05, 2007
The ministry of Dr. Kennedy has been with me for many years as I have commuted to work. It was a wonderful way to start each day. He has now heard our Savior say, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant." May his family and his friends be comforted in the full knowledge that they shall be reunited with him in the presence of our Savior.
September 05, 2007
I thank God for this Pastor who came to my house and showed me and my family how we could have Eternal Life through a simple story
about the real Jesus.
September 05, 2007
Our condolonces to the Kennedy Family. Our nation has lost a Great Man of God. He has left a truly beautiful legacy. May God Bless his family and bring them comfort and peace in the assurance that he is with our Lord and Saviour.

His soft spoken voice is something that I will forever treasure in my memory.

A great, great,great man went to be with the Lord. His influence and good works will be always be felt. He touched so many people in so many ways.
September 05, 2007
The world has lost a great American, and a great Preacher, but our loss is Heaven's gain. God Bless his family and his church.
September 05, 2007
Our deepest condolences go out to the Kennedy family at this most difficult time. James is now in his new home with no more pain and suffering. "To Be Absent From The Body Is To Be Present With The Lord".
September 05, 2007
I had a pleasure to meet Dr.Kennedy several years back at a Men's Prayer Breakfast at Coral Ridge. He appeared to be a lot thinner in person, his robe made him look bigger. He asked me "what church did I attend?" I told him "Christ Evangelical Baptist Church" being a little intimidated by him and by catching me a little off guard, I was stumped for an answer. He told me straight up, "It's about telling others about Christ." It shows his compassion and desire for sharing God's love. I enjoyed watching his insights about the spirituality of America today, he used to tell you like it is, plain and simple, not Theological or religiously, but in everyday language so the average man could understand. He would be missed, but he is in a better place, in God's hands.
September 05, 2007
My sympathies to the Kennedy family. I am very sad at your loss. I know he is in a wonderful place now.
September 05, 2007
The great leader of Christian Reconstuctionism has been taken from us. Oh how I wish he was going to be here when the rule of Christ is imposed on humanity.
September 05, 2007
As a very conservative Catholic, and a former local broadcaster, I always had great respect, admiration and love for Dr. Kennedy. My three or four personal interactions with him over the years proved to me what a sincere and devout man of Christ he was. Everyone knew he had a towering intellect but fewer knew of his fabulous sense of humor. Knowing Christ will bring joy to your soul. No surprise then that Dr. Kennedy was a profoundly happy man.

Christendom has lost a courageous warrior and America has lost a passionate patriot.

May God richly bless him and reward him for a remarkable life of service.

Rest in peace.
September 05, 2007
Your tv and radio messages have been a tremendous blessing to us. You will be greatly missed by all conservative Christians.
September 05, 2007
May he rest in peace.
September 05, 2007
It was my honor to serve Christ with and under Jim Kennedy for 32 years. Ruth and I want you to know, Anne and Jennifer, that most important to us was to have our children raised under Jim's unswerving teaching of the Scriptures.
September 05, 2007
Was very saddened to hear of the death of Dr. Kennedy. I'm sure his good work will be carried on by all those he touched over his many years of preaching.
September 05, 2007
While it was the Holy Spirit that entered me and Christ's words that converted me, I was blessed that it was Dr. Kennedy's voice that delivered the message. Since then I was able to meet and talk with him on several occasions and it was his humbleness and grace that I remember the most. May Anne and Jennifer have comfort in the knowledge that while here on Earth we are poorer for the loss of Dr. Kennedy, he is rejoicing with his Saviour. We will all miss him but as he has taught us, trust in Christ and we will all meet again.
September 05, 2007
I have not been a religious person for some time but in recent years as I found God again, I would watch and listen to Dr. Kennedy on TV while living in Tulsa, home to Oral Roberts. I attended Coral Ridge a few times while living in Sunrise,FL and now live in Boca Raton. Dr. Kennedy will be missed.
September 05, 2007
To the family of Dr. Kennedy, know that he has touched so many lives with his messages from the Lord. May you find peace and joy in your time of bereavement. God bless.
September 05, 2007
Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to the entire Kennedy family in this time of mourning. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
September 05, 2007
What a glorious day in heaven where they welcomed Dr Kennedy. May he see what all God has done through him continue for years and years. I will miss him but cherished the time I had with him.
September 05, 2007
we thank dr.kennedy for all your messages in christ name.also your courage not to deviate from gods commandments in your books,sermons.your tv ministry brought many souls back to christ.
September 05, 2007
A great man of God. We will miss you.
September 05, 2007
He was a warrior until his last breath. Undeniably, a son of God; follower of Jesus; and inspired by the Holy Ghost! Your legacy is truly appreciated!!
September 05, 2007

September 05, 2007
Although I grew up In Fort Lauderdale, I did not come to know Dr Kennedy's ministry until a year ago when I began watching him in North Carolina. He was an amazing man, and I hope his work continues.
September 05, 2007
Thanks for giving us the gospel each week.
God Bless your Family.
September 05, 2007
His leading us to Christ 43 years ago was the defining moment in our lives. We are also very grateful for the Christian principles he taught us. To God Be The Glory.
September 05, 2007
It was a privilege to serve with Jim as his minister of missions at CRPC from 1986 to 1988. God has welcomed His adopted son home. We weep with you, and rejoice with him.
September 05, 2007
My deepest sympathies to the entire Kennedy family. Our lives were forever enriched by his loving words and sermons. God bless you all.

I know you will be watching and blessing us from above.
September 05, 2007
The Heavens REJOICE with the arrival of D.James Kennedy. I am grateful to God to be alive at the same time as Dr.Kennedy. The earth has lost a inspiring Christian man who touched so many people with God's truth. He will be sadly missed by many of us who only knew him from television and radio. God's strength and comfort are wished for his family.
September 05, 2007
Inspirational!!
September 05, 2007
A wonderful man of God who will be sorely missed in this life, but his joy is now complete, as he is with Jesus Christ in heaven eternally. I pray that the peace of Christ rests on all surviving family. God Bless you all.
September 05, 2007
Dear Ann and Jennifer,

Please accept our deepest sympathy.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief.

Dr. James Kennedy will be greatly missed, we were honored to spend a short time with him, realizing what a Mighty man of God he was. The Lord truly used him to make a difference in countless of lives, including us, and for that we give Glory to God!

May your memories bring you comfort.

In Loving Memory,
September 05, 2007
. . . to the last Amen!

September 05, 2007
Dr. Kennedy and Evangelism Explosion have made a tremendous difference to the world and especially in our lives. We pray that our God will comfort Ann and Jennifer at this time.
September 05, 2007
The world is a better place for having had Dr. James Kennedy to minister to so many. May God's grace and time bring peace and healing to his family.
September 05, 2007
My thoughts and prayers are with you both. I have many special memories of my visits to Coral Ridge Church, and I am saddened by Dr. Kennedy's passing, but I believe that this sunset on earth is a sunrise in Heaven for your dear husband and father. "May our lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, who loved us and by His grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you . . ."
September 05, 2007
Hi Mrs.Kennedy. I am sooo sorry for your loss! U know that i have grown up listening to him preach and i was really close! but you know that he fulfilled his purpose, carried out his goal for Christ and God saw that it was good and God thought it was his time because he had done wut God had called him to do! I will be praying for you and jennifer. I will also see you at the funeral!
September 05, 2007
A very wonderful man. He will be missed by many.
September 05, 2007
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
September 05, 2007
Dear Ann and Jennifer,

Dr. Kennedy changed my life from the first time I heard him on the radio in Chicago in the mid 80s.
He is my spiritual father and he gave me an image of a real man.
From convicting me of my personal sins to standing up for America and it’s foundation, Dr. Kennedy was an Icon for me to listen to daily.

I have been praying for him for a long long time. He is one of the greatest things that ever happened to me.

I never knew of Dr. Kennedy’s age until 12-28-06. I always hoped he was as young as he looked so that I would not have to face the day when the Lord makes his call, for a long time.

I had been praying for him a lot lately that the Lord would give him an easy departure.
This morning, I asked the Lord to not let him suffer and that I could now accept it if he takes him to paradise.

Even though I only got to meet Dr. Kennedy once, I feel that he would want me to carry on with his forum and support of his ministry.

Unfortunately, I have limited words in this worldly body.
But, for him, it is time to experience all the wonders that he has been teaching us for so long.

My heart will be sore for a while. But I thank the Lord for sending Dr. Kennedy into my life and showing me purpose and to support our great hope.

I will not say good bye to Dr. Kennedy, but I say: “ LIVE AGAIN Dr. Kennedy with the Great One!”

God Bless you.
September 05, 2007
The servant of the Lord has gone home.
September 05, 2007
He was my TV pastor when I first moved to the US in 1990. As the years rolled by and I moved to other states, I continued to follow his ministry. Finally, I ended up living in the Ft Lauderdale area where he pastored.

What a great saint of the Lord. Heaven rejoices today. May your grief turn to joy at this time.
September 05, 2007
Thank you Dr Kennedy. Just like Jesus, you love the sinner but hate the sin. You only spoke against those who would say that sin was OK and would try to lead others astray just as Jesus spoke against the Pharisees who misled others. Enjoy your reward, good and faithful servant.
September 05, 2007
May you abundantly enter into the joy of your LORD...

and may the Lord of the harvest raise up many more workers with your zeal and diligence.

In His Love,

Steve & Sue Mixsell

"As for God, His way is perfect. The Word of the Lord is sure, He is a shield to all those who trust in Him." Psalm 18:30
September 05, 2007
Ann,

I was saved at age 18 while living in Ft. Lauderdale and became a member of Coral Ridge soon afterwards where I sang in the choir for several years ( I remember you well). It was while sitting under Dr. Kennedy's teaching in the late 1970's and early 1980's that I began to grow as a young Christian, met other strong Christians who became mentors and life long friends, and as a result my life has been blessed. I have no doubt that had it not been for your husband, I wouldn't have the strong faith I do today. He will be sorely missed. My condolences to you and your family at this time.
September 05, 2007
A true Christian identity: for years, we the common people, have been blessed every Sunday, while Dr.D.James Kennedy has made The Gospel message available to us through nationwide broadcasting.
Therefore; today the same people know that Jesus, Son of God, has received a true friend into His permanent residence.
Rest in peace Pastor Kennedy, and thank you for such a contribution to the spirit of mankind within the land of the free. Indeed, you shall be remembered by the people of a Christian society.
September 05, 2007
Pastor Kennedy is a man I have admired for many years and will miss him tremendously.
September 05, 2007
We are grateful for all the messages of Dr. Kennedy. We were honored to have met Dr. Kennedy.

September 05, 2007
Anne and Jennifer my thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. May you find comfort in knowing that Dr. Kennedy is in the loving arms of our Lord Jesus.
September 05, 2007
Our hearts go out to you at this time and in the days ahead. Dr. Kennedy was an inspiration and a true Christian. I'm glad to have met him and to have been a part of one of his ministries.
September 05, 2007
He's at rest now with the Heavenly Father!Thank you Lord for this man. May the Lord GOD be gracious enough to raise up another man like him.A man who stood amidst the storms of life for the truth of the Gospel. May our God comfort your family in this time of loss.
September 05, 2007
I first heard of James Kennedy years ago when my father, a Lutheran minister in Appleton, WI and mother attended his evangelism explosion. They were forever blessed and it became the basis of the evangelism at our local church. Both of my parents have since passed on into Glory. When my husband and I moved to Jacksonville, FL two years ago, we became accustomed to watching the Coral Ridge program on Saturday night at 7 pm, following the Gaither Homecoming. Both programs have become our Saturday night TV blessing. I always hoped to make it to Ft Lauderdale someday to visit Dr. Kennedy in person...now that will never happen. Ann and Jennifer...your husband and father has been a blessing to many. Now he joins the heavenly host on this his coronation day! Hallelujah! The saints be praised. Dr. Kennedy...Well done, thou good and faithful servant. Enter now into the gates of heaven! Amen, may it be so for each one of us.
September 05, 2007
Thank you, Dear Lord Jesus, for raising up this man to glorify your name in a sin filled world. May you do so now in raising up many others not to seek the things of this passing world but like brother James Kennedy to commit themselves totally to You. We will miss our brother.
September 05, 2007

I am very sorry to hear of the death of Dr. Kennedy. I have listened to his sermons since I was a teenager. I now listen every Saturday evening at 7 pm. His sermons brought joy to my spiritual life. God is too wise to make a mistake and too just to do wrong. To the family, we all shall meet him again someday when all of God's children get together. May his soul rest in peace.
September 05, 2007
I will miss his Sunday sermons and the world is poorer for the passing of a great man.
September 05, 2007
I'm thankful for the opportunity to be led by this great leader. My prayers go out to his family. His impact will be felt for generations.

We'll miss you and all you offered our community and the entire world with Evangalism Explosion and the entire Creation Science ministry. And for putting faith in and encouraging Tom Derosa which has impacted the United States and abroad with a permanent and lasting direction. And both ministries have changed my direction and given new purpose. Jeremiah 6:16

Dear Mrs. Kennedy and family,
I am so saddened by the news of Dr. Kennedys passing. I am a 50 year resident of Broward County and have memories of my Mother watching Rev. Kennedy on T.V. for many many years..until she passed away at age 93. May you have comfort in knowing how many lives have been comforted by Rev. Kennedy as he did to others through our Lord. Respectfully, Judi (Damron) Nixon

I will miss his inspirational sermons, Rest In Peace.

I started listening to Dr. Kennedy in the 1980s. I always appreciated his burden and zeal to do what he could to restore this beloved nation of ours to its Christian roots. He has now been "promoted to Glory" and has already heard his Lord's words, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant:... enter thou into the joy of thy lord". Matt.25:21
September 05, 2007
So, we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord. For we walk by faith, not by sight. We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord. 2 Corinthians 5:6-8
Truly, this day, D. James Kennedy, is present with the Lord. Our prayers are with the family but rejoice with them knowing he is with the one he loved, even Jesus Christ, his savior.
September 05, 2007
Praise God from Whom all blessings flow! He will be missed by all but the legacy he has left will impact generations to come. What great things God will do through a man wholly surrendered.
September 05, 2007
Dr. Kennedy taught us to love God with our minds also not just our hearts. He taught us that faith in Jesus was reasonable and about the faith of our country's founders. He will live on in heaven and on earth through sound and video recordings and his books.
September 05, 2007
He will be missed!
September 05, 2007
Dear Mrs. Kennedy and Jennifer,
Upon hearing the news of his passing I thought, how much we will miss him, but then my next reaction his that he is in the fullness of the Glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. May the Lord's peace rest upon you.
September 05, 2007
We were members of Coral Ridge for 15 years prior to moving back to our hometown, Columbus, GA. I owned a small Christian bookstore just below the church and I was honored to have Dr. Kennedy visit on numerous occasions. He was not only our pastor, but he and Ann were good friends. We faithfully watched his TV ministry every week and we will dearly miss him. To his dear family we send our love, prayers and sympathy.
September 05, 2007
To the Kennedy Family we send our deepest sympathy. He was a true man of God and will be deeply missed. He is with God now for eternity.

He is Risen
