During his 58 years as a Free Methodist pastor, John Hendricks had an especially fruitful ministry to people of diverse ages and backgrounds — including many college students who attended the Free Methodist churches bordering their campuses. Hendricks, 85, pastored in Ypsilanti, Michigan; St. Petersburg, Florida; Spring Arbor, Michigan; Greenville, Illinois; and Lakeland, Florida.
Hendricks died Sunday, Nov. 25, following a fall the previous day that resulted in severe brain trauma.
After a private graveside service for family earlier in the day, a 3 p.m. public memorial service will be held Friday, Nov. 30, at Light & Life Free Methodist Church, 5730 Deeson Road, Lakeland FL 33810, with a time to visit with family immediately following the service.
The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations in Hendricks’ name be made to International Child Care Ministries. Thank you for your prayers on behalf of the family.
