Death – Obituaries : (MARKET NEWS) – Friends and families are mourning the death of Dr Dimitri Bradley, senior Pastor of City Church in Richmond, VA who recently passed away after a fatal car accident.
We learned of the deceased through the following tribute posted on social media by Pastor Ron Carpenter Jr
This is the kind of post that no one ever wants to make. It is with great sadness that I speak to you on behalf of Dr. Dimitri Bradley, who at age 51 was tragically taken from us last night in an automobile accident.
Pastor Dimitri pastored City Church in Richmond, Virginia with other campuses that were spreading all the way to the western parts of the United States. Pastor Dimitri was one of the brightest, most intelligent, and most innovative leaders I’ve ever had the privilege of knowing.
He was a part of Redemption Ministerial Fellowship for many years and one of its greatest supporters. He was also a great friend. His presence loomed large as he was a giant of a man in stature as well as a giant of a man in character and spirit.
His loss will be deeply felt by the family, by the church, by the cities in which he pastored, and to all of us who loved him dearly.
Please pray for his wife, Nicole, his daughter, Jordan, and his son, Julius, as well as all of the family members and people of the wonderful congregation, City Church. It’s times like these that we have no explanation and religious clichés fall to the ground. We simply trust God and ask for his peace and comfort. Love you Dr. Dimitri Bradley… you will be remembered. Ron Carpenter
The following are some tributes posted on social media to honor the life and the legacy of the deceased.
