Obituary of Rev. Michael King

~~Rev. Michael King was born October 4th, 1958 in Dallas, Texas to the late John Wesley and the late Ida Jean King.

In 1980, Michael accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior and soon thereafter answered the call in ministry of spreading God's Word.

Michael was happily married to Denise Dunn King for 28 years until his earthly departure. They loved each other and cherished their union. God blessed him to co-minister with his wife, along with Christopher & Brian; as his health began to decline, this brought joy to his heart to see the church continue as God would have it.

Michael received his pastoral training under the leadership of the late Dr. E. K. Bailey at Concord Missionary Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas and went on to serve as an Assistant Pastor at Frazier Berean Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas.

Michael continued to carry out the Lord's calling on his life as the Pastor of New Galilee Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas for 14 years.

He devoted his time to his family, his church, and his vocation at NCH Corporation where he was employed for 25 years. He loved spreading God's Word and being an example of a godly man.

Michael is survived by his loving and faithful Wife, Denise King; his Aunt, Merdell Brockington; Siblings, Belinda (Michael), Toyce, Robert, and John Jr.; Sons, Michael (Ginelle), Jamari, Christopher (Shondrieka), and Brian; His Special Niece, Rochelle Rathel; and a host of Nieces, Nephews, Cousins, and Grandchildren.

May the God of all comfort, comfort you during this time of grief. Soon Jesus Christ will call all those asleep in the memorial tombs they will hear his voice and come out. Yes, the resurrection will soon be a reality on a peaceful earth. (Acts 24:15 & Psalm 37:10,11)
