Mourning the Death of Dr. Jim Leverette ('77)

Dr. Jim Leverette ('77)

The Taylor community and the churches and members of the Alberta Baptist Association are mourning the sudden death of Dr. Jim Leverette. Jim, the Regional Minister of the ABA, passed away in his sleep in December; although struggling with health issues this year, no-one expected this turn of events.

Born in Three Hills, AB in 1955, Jim was just short of his 22nd birthday when he graduated from Taylor (then known as NABC) in 1977. He continued his studies with two years of work on his Master of Divinity degree before transferring to our sister seminary in Sioux Falls (then known as North American Baptist Seminary).

Dr. Leverette served as Academic Vice-President of Taylor from 2000-2008, and at the time of his death was a member of the Board of Trustees -- along with his daughter, Stephanie Fehr ('06, '12).

The Taylor community extends our deepest condolences to Cheryl, Stephanie and Nathan and their families, and to Dr. Leverette's parents, Jake and Peggy Leverette. We remember with gratitude the long record of faithful service to the NAB family and to the many kingdom partners outside of the NAB family who were also blessed by Jim's friendship and leadership.
