Pastor Fox was the real deal as a young man and young Christian I was ministered to by him he was an example in the church and in the pulpit but I also had the pleasure of playing golf with him a few times and he was a gentleman there as well. When we lose men like him I'm not sure there being replaced we need men like pastor Fox in the world and in the church today once at a church function when we were all fellow shipping after a great meal he put his arm on my shoulder and said "look around Robby this is what it is all about," he said "it's the people God wants us to love and minister to them that is the ministry" I have remembered that for over 20 years and it has been the cornerstone of all my ministry. If I have done any good at all in God's kingdom then surely Pastor fox shares in God's recognition. Thank you Pastor

My Pastor,

What an honor it was to have you speak into my life since I was 5 yrs old- even when I did not seek it.

My destiny was prophetically changed, when Pastor Fox spoke the Spirit into my life.

He'd always catch the teenagers before we could slip out at the of the service with His Eye Lock & ask how we were.

Words cannot describe the foundation that he and his family built in my life. My heart feels the Loss of a Great Man, but Heaven rejoices over another Honorable Son coming home.

Glad He is with His wife and sons in Heaven.

Love you always,
Leonard & Rosella, Steve & Stan

May the God of all grace comfort your hearts. I was always greatly inspired by Leonard Fox's ministry at Revival Temple Mission Conferences. He blessed my life. Bob Sayre (Missionary in Xuzhou, China).

Pastor Fox was a true "Father".He trusted us who were new, to step out and get our feet wet.
In ministering with my choir the first time, he looked right at me and said, "
iS THERE ANYONE HERE WHO CAN LEAD MY WORSHIP" I want these young prophets to learn how to sing the song of the Lord." Talk about being instant in season.
He had a sign on his office door that said," I must hasten to catch up with them for I am their leader".

We have so many wonderful memories of Pastor Leonard. He blessed our lives for so many years through his gifted word, and powerful prophetic ministry.. He was an example to everyone, and seemed to always be able to change with the seasons and stay current with what God was doing. He is loved and will be missed.

We have many fond memories of Pastor Fox as he ministered in Shiloh Church in Oakland during its early years. I still remember the first sermon I heard him preach there. He was a might man of God. He will be missed. Terrie & Dennis Springer

My condolences to the Fox family and may God bless all of you abundantly and comfort you in this time of your loss. I got born again and received the Holy Spirit at the old church in Muscoy many years ago. Pastor and Mrs. Fox were profoundly instrumental in my life, and in many others, in regards to spiritual matters. I'm absolutely sure that they both will receive a plethora of crowns and rewards in Heaven. May God bless the entire Fox family.

To the Fox Family:

In this difficult time in your lives, may you find comfort in God's Word, the Bible. James 4:8 encourages; "Draw close to God, and he will draw close to you."

My condolences,

My Hero (& friend)
My love to Leonard Fox's natural family and church family ... He was my mentor, and a mentor to many of our missions ambassadors world-wide. Leonard will always stand out as a faithful servant of God, and an advancer of the Kingdom. Motivator, corrector, encourager, and friend, he will always be my hero. Again, love to all of you. We are standing with you in faith during this special time.
