A church family is mourning the loss of its pastor.
C. Michael Johnson was the pastor of Word of Faith Christian Center in Jackson.
Johnson took over the church after the long time pastor stepped down almost two years ago.
Johnson had been in the ministry for over 25 years. He passed away Tuesday morning at a Jackson hospital.
He is survived by his wife Bernice, three children, and six grandchildren.
The church website says information on services for Pastor Johnson will be given at a later time.
