Bishop John Humes 1951 - 2014

Nassau, Bahamas – Today is a sad day in the Christian Church following the passing of one of its pillars.

Bahamas Press pauses to pay tribute on the passing of Bishop John Humes, former President of the Bahamas Christian Council and former Leader of the Church of God in the Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands.

In early June Bishop Humes demitted as Overseer. The 64-year-old suffered a short illness. In early July this year he lost his twin brother, a Bishop in the Church of God of Prophecy, to an illness.

Bishop John Nathaniel Humes and his twin, Solomon Humes, were born to Nathaniel & Alsaida Humes in Nassau, Bahamas on February 26th, 1951.

In 2002, John N Humes became National Overseer & Administrative Bishop of the Church of God and served for 12 years in that position.

Bloggers commenting on the passing of the Bishop are expressing their sadness following his passing.
