Pastor Zachary Tims Dead
Reports have surfaced of the death of embattled Pastor Zachary Tims in New York. Dr.Agustin Perez (Apostle A A Perez) reported the death a short while ago. Tims built a church dynasty New Destiny Christian Center (NDCC) from a strip mall, with then wife Dr. Riva Tims. Tims had publicly admitted that he had an affair with an excotic dancer he met in a hotel ballroom while in Paris. A long distance relationship stemmed from that meeting. Later she stripper Judy Nyugen, then 38, claimed Tims, had ”numerous adulterous affairs”, cheating on her as well. According to the reports, Tims publicly asked for forgiveness and patience from the community, while he and his wife deal with what he called a “difficult situation”, though the marriage ultimatedly ended in divorce after Riva filed in 2008 and went on to pursue her own ministry, Majestic Life Institute. The couple had been married for 15 years.
