Rev. Dr. C. Herschel Gammill, age 74 was born on October 16, 1942 in Meadville, Mississippi.
On Sunday night, September 10th 2017, Dr. C. Herschel Gammill, who was a Bishop, a life coach, an entrepreneur, an author and an amazing father, finished his work here on earth and took a new assignment in the presence of the Lord! One of the most gifted, compassionate, determined men, quietly & peacefully slipped out of his earth suit and the earthly put on the heavenly! The man that taught his family how to live and how to die and showed them love every day kept the faith in Jesus Christ and fought the good fight. Dad entered a freedom and a glory that has no earthly comparison. He then handed his children a baton called legacy and entrusted his family, his ministry and his work into their hands. Over 58 years of ministry, he planted seven churches and sent out hundreds of spiritual sons & daughters that have planted churches and ministries. The last church that he & his wife Gail planted was Cathedral of Life Ministries in Canton, Ohio, as well as co-founding and building The Inn at Belden Village, an assisted-living development on the church campus. Dad preached in Africa, India, Europe, Asia, North and South America and the Islands. A special thank you goes out to the exceptional compassionate care of the staff of the Inn at Belden Village and in the final hours Crossroads Hospice.
