The church of late Pastor Zachery Tim, New Destiny Christian Center, has released a musical tribute video last week to the fallen leader. The release comes just shortly before the house of God plans to hold a special tribute service for him on September 18.

The video was created by NDCC’s Music Department and is solely dedicated to the memory of its leader.

It displays clips of Pastor Tims’ charismatic preaching with a touching score in the background.

“By the time you come out of what you’ve been in your gonna come out a different person,” preaches Tims in the video. “Some of you are already different, some of you are already more anointed, some of are already more focused, some of you are already more submitted.”

The video includes the choir and the band give special thanks to Tims.

Worship team member Madelyn Berry also offers her love to him in the video.

“Thank you Pastor Zach for giving me an opportunity to share my gift and ministry with the world!!!,” reads her tribute in the video.

The announcement for the special tribute service to be held on September 18, was announced last week on NDCC’s Twitter and Facebook Pages.

The church is currently accepting tributes and testimonies dedicated to Pastor Zachery Tims via email at

The deadline for them to be submitted is September 15, 2011.

The Florida Pastor was found dead in the W hotel, located in New York City last month.

He was just 42 years old and his cause of death is still under investigation.

Tims and his family founded New Destiny Christian Center in Apopka, Florida in 1996 where he served as senior pastor.

NDCC has a congregation of about 8,000 people, according to the churches website.

Tims frequently appeared on TBN’s “Praise the Lord” program.

According to his biography on NDCC’s website, the Pastor struggled with drug addiction during his youth but was “miraculously saved, instantly delivered from drug addiction, and called into ministry.”

He was divorced in 2009 and leaves behind four children.
