Pastor Jack W. Hayford Dead at 88
Pastor Jack W. Hayford, founding pastor of The Church on the Way in Van Nuys, California, died Jan. 8, 2023, at age 88. He served as chancellor of The King's University in Southlake, Texas, which he founded in 1997, and was president of the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel from 2004-2009. He also wrote over 50 books and composed more than 500 hymns and choruses, including the internationally known and widely recorded "Majesty." But he was probably best-known as "Pastor Jack," serving The Church on the Way for over three decades.
Born on June 25, 1934, the infant Hayford was gripped by a life-threatening illness and miraculously healed through the prayers of friends and family. Later, he was attacked by polio, and church elders anointed him and prayed for his healing. God granted another miracle.
"These two extraordinary events ignited in Jack's heart a passion for God and convinced him that the Holy Spirit is alive and active in the contemporary church," his ministry's website says. "Contrary to our preconceptions, God is not economical with healings and miracles," Hayford said. "Such wondrous works are frequently attending the proclamation of truth in Jesus' name."
