The funeral service for Pastor Kenneth Perine was a wonderful tribute to a precious minister of the Gospel and great man of God. Bishop Daniel Garlitz preached a powerful, passionate message. Letters of tribute from Bishop David M. Hudson (WV District Superintendent, unable to be present due to recovering from illness) and Bishop David K. Bernard (General Superintendent of the UPCI) and others were read and well received. The outpouring of love and support from fellow ministers was palpable, seen in a strong representation of many licensed ministers and district officials. The church building was totally filled, with standing room only. This was all a testament to how many lives were touched by this precious soldier of the cross. Laughter, tears, and anointing of the Spirit were present throughout the service.
