Today, the Christian community mourns the passing of one of it's most prolific soldiers. Many Bahamians knew Apostle J. Rodney Roberts affectionately by the name 'Coffee'. He spent most of his life in the work of bringing souls to the knowledge and love of God. From his days touring public schools leading young people to Christ to the building of a successful church, gospel music career and preaching and prophetic ministries, Apostle Roberts was focused on spreading the gospel.

One of his most admirable qualities was the fearless nature in which he spoke truth to power. He was a devoted family man and was proud of his children, both biological and spiritual. He lived the life he preached and we can be comforted in the fact that his absence from this world is evidence that he is now present with the Lord.

It is my hope that his legacy will live on in those whose lives he touched and that they will endeavour to carry on his work as our country and this world need bold, fearless leaders like J. Rodney Roberts who are not afraid to preach God's word. On behalf of the Bahamian christian community, I extend my deepest sympathy to his wife Pastor Curlene Roberts and their three children as well as the officers and members of Five Porches of Deliverance Apostolic Centre. May his soul rest in peace.
