Ville Platte LA Obituaries and Death Notices

Marvin Gorman, televangelist whose feud with Jimmy Swaggart ruined both, dies at 83 - NOLA.com

Monday, January 09, 2017

In 1999, sensing a call to a "broader scope of ministry," he handed over Temple of Praise to his son-in-law, according to Charisma. He held a few meetings at Christ Cathedral of Praise in Ville Platte -- and it became a 3 1/2-month revival.Those closest to Rev. Gorman remembered a man who dedicated his life to bringing the word of God to others, guiding fellow ministers and leading vibrant healing ministries that changed the lives of thousands of people. They credit Rev. Gorman with bringing Teen Challenge, a faith-based substance abuse recovery program, to Louisiana and for seeking to sow unity, not division, among Christians in a predominantly Roman Catholic city.Randy Gorman, his son, said Rev. Gorman never sought personal glory as he strove to bring the love of Jesus Christ to others. "He was a mere vessel on this planet, and he was grateful that God was able to minister through him and use him," Randy Gorman said.He described his father as "a minister to ministers," pointing to his father's work with preachers in east Africa. He said more than 10,000 ministers attended conferences led by Rev. Gorman in Nairobi, Kenya, in 2005 and 2007, some walking for miles on foot from rural towns and villages to arrive at the meetings."He was the most compassionate, tender-hearted minister I've ever met," Randy Gorman said. "He was a phenomenal man."Rev. Gorman held a Ph.D. in religion from the North Carolina College of Theology in Wilmington, honorary doctorates in theology from the Charismatic School of Theology and in divinity from Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond and an honorary master's degree in Bible and theology from Southwestern Assemblies of God University in Waxahachie, Texas.Survivors include Rev. Gorman's wife, Virginia; three children, Randy Gorman, Mark Gorman and Beverly Bilbo; four siblings, Joe Gorman, George Gorman, Wanda Williams and Dottie Smith; seven grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren.A funeral is scheduled for Tuesday at noon Church of Abundant Life, 2301 Par 3 Drive, Harvey. Visitation will begin at 10 a.m. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that donations be made to Foundation for Human Helps, 5000 W. Esplanade Ave, Suite 195, Metairie 70006.. . . . . . .Jennifer Larino contributed to this story.
