PLUMMER Bishop George C. Plummer, II, age 72, departed this earthly life to receive his heavenly reward on Saturday, March 13, 2010, following a very brief illness. Bishop Plummer was born to the late George C. Plummer, Sr. and the late Bertha Plummer C. Wright-Gilbert on February 27, 1938. He has been a life-long resident of Columbus, Ohio where he grew up and attended Columbus Public Schools. Bishop Plummer enjoyed preaching, fishing, and roller skating but, preaching the Word of God was his life. Bishop was a faithful pastor of The Divine Refuge Church of Christ for more than twenty-eight (28) years. Bishop Plummer was saved and received the Holy Ghost on November 21, 1968 under the leadership of his mother, the late Overseer Bertha Wright-Gilbert. He received and accepted the call to the ministry on July 25, 1972. Bishop Plummer continued to work faithfully in the ministry and was ordained an elder in 1974. Because of his faithful service, Bishop Plummer was installed as Co-Pastor to serve alongside the late Overseer Wright-Gilbert. He served in this position for seven years. After the home-going of Overseer Wright-Gilbert, he was installed as Bishop and Pastor of The Divine Refuge Church of Christ on October 18, 1981. Bishop Plummer was known throughout the city for his evangelistic preaching that brought revival and salvation to many. Bishop Plummer established the Television Ministry, Healing Is For You, which aired on CMTV Channel 21 for more than thirteen years. The program also aired in Springfield, Ohio and Ossining, New York. His messages were shared throughout the prisons, churches, and he personally took his healing ministry, laying his hands and praying the prayer of faith, to many in hospital beds.
