“Bishop Wayne Hicks was a friend and fellow servant of Jesus Christ," said Doug Beacham., presiding bishop of the IPHC. "He faithfully served the Lord as a pastor and denominational leader of the Congregational Holiness Church. As a graduate of Emmanuel College, he was well known to many in the IPHC. Our prayers are with his family and with our sister denomination."
