BRONX, NY (November 19, 2007) – Funeral arrangements are pending for Dr. Jerry Mosby, 59, senior pastor of Fellowship Covenant Church, who died at home Sunday morning, Covenant News Service has learned.

Mosby, who pastored Fellowship Covenant for 27 years, had struggled with health issues for several years.

“When the history of the African American Ministers Association is told, he and pastor Willie Jemison will be considered pioneers among African American pastors in the Covenant, especially in urban ministry,” Burgoyne noted.

The story of Fellowship Covenant is similar to that of Oakdale Covenant in Chicago where Jemison served, Burgoyne says. Mosby succeeded well-known Covenant pastor G. Dewey Sands as pastor of Fellowship Covenant, located in a formerly Anglo neighborhood that had transitioned over the years.

“Jerry played a significant role in New York City, especially in the struggle for social justice,” Burgoyne says, noting Mosby was active and well-known in the New York City scene.

“Please join in prayer for Sandra and their children in these days of grief, and for the congregation at Fellowship Covenant, who have been pastored by Jerry for so many years,” said Howard Burgoyne, superintendent of the East Coast Conference of the Evangelical Covenant Church.

“Pray also for the congregation in this time of grief and transition.”

Additional details will be published in this online Covenant news report as they become available.
