The Rev. Zachery Tims, senior pastor of New Destiny Christian Center, with one of the largest congregations in Central Florida, was found dead in a New York City hotel room on Sunday, several news sources reported. Tims was 42.

Dozens of people gathered in the parking lot outside the Apopka church on Sunday night, many with tears in their eyes.

“He was a great man,” said Shirley Jackson, as she drove into the church property. “I had to come out here and see if it was true.”

Anthony Fryer, a member for about 2 years, said he came out to the church when heard about Tims death from New York City web sites.
