The founder and Senior Pastor of the Don Stewart Christ Pentecostal (DSCPC) in Liberia, Bishop William Nah Dixon is dead.
Bishop Dixon, 80, and also founder of the Deaf and Dumb School in Virginia reportedly died on Wednesday in New York, United States of America (USA), following a period of brief illness.
Bishop Dixon, father of nine children served as former president of the Liberia Council of Churches (LCC) and he was instrumental in the resolution of the Liberian civil crisis. He was born in Rivercess County.
As a result of his commitment to peace and concern for Liberians, Arch-Bishop Dr. William Nah Dixon received several honors as a “Humanitarian and Educator of the Year” from reputable institutions and groups, including The INQUIRER, and a Pro-democracy peace building civil society watch-dog organization, the Society for the Promotion of Peace, National Reconciliation and Reunification (SPNRL), among others.
Bishop Dixon was also the founder of the “FEED MY PEOPLE,” a segment of the Don Stewart Pentecostal Church in the Borough of New Kru Town, outside Monrovia. The ‘Feed My People” project was successful in that many people who were in dire need of food during the Liberian civil crisis benefited from the program.
Members of the church and sympathizers have assembled at the residence of the Bishop in New Kru Town to identify with his family as they mourn the death of their father.
Meanwhile the president of the LCC, Bishop Jonathan Hart has confirmed the death of Bishop Dixon and described it as a blow to the LCC. Another official said the Bishop’s death is sad and unfortunate, describing it as “Missing Voice” in the society.
