Billy Hornsby 1949-2011
This morning as I drove onto the campus of C3 Church for our 6am Men’s Prayer time I couldn’t help but weep as I began to think about the impact that Pastor Billy Hornsby has had on my life, my family and this church. God has done incredible things here at C3 because of men like Billy who have poured into us.
He is not only the President of the Association of Related Churches, he is one of my overseers he has been like a dad to Martha and I and a grandpa to our kids. My 14 year-old daughter, Caroline, wrote this on her facebook page this morning…
“Thinking of all the great times I had with Pastor Billy, as He is now in Heaven. I miss you so much. You were such a remarkable man of God and I will always live out what you taught me. I love you like a Papa.”
On Wednesday, March 23 at about 9:44pm Billy Hornsby went to be with Jesus and spend an eternity in heaven. He will be missed here so much. My life has been impacted and my prayer is that God will use me and others to carry out the mission and the vision that God gave Billy to change the world. I love you Billy. See you again. Thanks for finishing strong.
The last time Billy spoke publicly, he shared some words of encouragement.
