On October 29, 3:00 p.m., I received a disturbing text message indicating Pastor Jack D. Fields, Sr., has transitioned to be with the Lord Jesus Christ. I felt distraught and devastated because I have known Pastor Jack D. Fields, Sr., since 2009. Pastor Fields is highly respected throughout the El Paso and surrounding communities as an anointed preacher, teacher, pulpiteer, prayer warrior, liturgist, and community leader. Pastor Fields is most admired for bringing spiritual transformation, personal integrity, social responsibility, and the gospel message of salvation and conviction as Senior Pastor, Visitors Chapel A.M.E. Church, El Paso, TX.
Pastor Fields and I have appeared on some El Paso Community platforms, which he modeled and emulated some MLK attributes to include self-confidence, intelligence, strong verbal propensity, perceptual aptness, critical thinking and reasoning. Pastor Fields’ leadership motto is, “If God Can’t Do It, It Can’t Be Done.”
On behalf of the El Paso MLK Committee, we convey our deepest condolences to the family members, extended family members, and Visitors Chapel A.M.E. Church. 2 Corinthians 5:8 states, “We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.” Rest on Pastor Jack D. Fields, Sr., we will see you in the morning.
The POC for this letter of correspondence is the undersigned.
