You may have heard this already, but in case you haven’t…

Pastor Billy Joe, of Victory Christian Center, was diagnosed with lymphoma last month and is currently in the hospital being treated for complications resulting from an infection, according to articles by KJRH and News9.

UPDATE (2009-11-23):

Yesterday at 4:40 am, Pastor Billy Joe ‘graduated to heaven’ according to this NewsOK article and this excellent Tulsa World article.  He was 57.  A memorial service is being planned for November 30th.

I remember visiting VCC when I was 11 years old and also during my time at ORU.  I remember that he seemed like a sweet, kind, and well-respected leader.  I know that he will be missed by many.
