Parsons’ health rapidly deteriorated after he was diagnosed with the virus on Aug. 9. Congregants prayed earnestly for God to restore the pastor in an online service last week.

“He was loved by many and he leaves an impactful legacy in the lives of thousands of people,” Lexington’s Center Point Church said of the pastor in a Facebook post Thursday morning. https://t.co/vckiFaaFF2
