So sad to hear this, but we know He has reached his eternal home with Jesus. He came to speak at Moorlands when I was there ... such a gentle and anointed man.

Jim & Irene Murdock

So very sad to hear this. Glad Jim is rejoicing in heaven! He spoke with such warmth and deep conviction of the eternal life for all who believe. I love hearing him speak. So gracious and so full of God. Prayers for the family.

Saddened to hear this, but gladdened to know that he is safe with Jesus. Became aware of Rev Jim when A friend sent me cassettes of his sermons while I was serving as a Missionary nurse in Malawi. A real blessings. Met up with him again at CLAN in St Andrews Scotland in 2001. Again such a blessing. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. Doris Mackenzie

Deeply significant influence in our lives (my wife and I ) while at LBC and he married us in July 1977. Precious in the eyes of the Lord is the death of his saints.

Meg Edwards

Lovely man. Baptised me many many years ago when he was minister at Viewfield Baptist Church in Dunfermline. My mum was his housekeeper for a while. X

Dear Pastor Jim has died to Live! He was very precious to me. Reading his book Dying to Live prepared me for my son Trevor's Home Call age 26 years ago. I got the privilege of sharing many special times with Pastor Jim in Northern Ireland and at Conferences in England. Psalm 116v15 is on my son Trevor's headstone. Sincere Sympathy to you. Psalm 34v18.

Kathryn & Peter Morgan

Jim was the most Godly man I have ever met. During the 3 years when Peter was the student minister at Gold Hill, we were so blessed by Jim's biblical teaching. He was always encouraging, wise and gracious in guiding our early steps into full-time ministry. He will be missed by many, and we particularly send love to his family.

Paul Lavender

Jim was gracious and kind to me, and offered me some precious pastoral counsel at a crucial point in my ministry. I thank my God for every remembrance of him.

Mitch

So sad to hear of Jim's passing.
Such a wonderful man and encouragement to us in the early day of Crown Jesus Ministries.
Jim spoke with eloquence and conviction at our prayers events but he will also be remembered for the pastoral wisdom and kind nature off the platform. We have lost a general, a spiritual father to many and a friend.
Thoughts and prayers with the family.

Jim was a precious and Godly man. I can recall a few occasions when his grace and his words profoundly impacted my life. Sorry for your loss. I pray that the God of all comfort will give you His peace.

Bill Caldwell

Jim was a gracious, godly man who, in the spirit of Barnabas, was a great encourager. I was privileged to know him as a beloved friend and a great teacher.

Greene Bunn

A wonderful gentle wise man of God who shone with the love and grace of Jesus wherever he went, whenever he spoke.

Dan Yarnell

Having known him mainly through his books and teaching, I was delighted to send time with him at Gold Hill some fifteen or more years ago as we began to dream about a new leadership MA, to become the Springdale College/ForMission work.. He exemplified the kind of wise, compassionate, kind, gentle and faithful leadership that I am always seeking to aspire to. His legacy in his preaching, his writing and especially his following Jesus is a real gift to many of us who have travelled on this Christian leadership journey. Blessings to God for him, and my prayers for the family.

Ellen lord

I trust the immediate family will know Gods peace and that the bigger church family willcontinue to grow as Jim had worked hard to help them do

God bledd you all

Linda Rodman

Saddened to read this news, but equally thankful for the life of a man who has been an incredible influence in the lives of so many people. I did not know him personally but know some of his immediate family. Be assured of our prayers David, Rhianonn, Andy and Angela. God Bless you as you mourn Jim's death but as you have written He is now alive with our Lord.
Love to you all

jim graham was one of the best influences on my Christian life while he was pastor at viewfield Baptist church my thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time god bless

Ian Macnair

Godliness and grace personified. His ministry was probably the greatest influence under God on my life. Thanks be to God for such a life and ministry.

Alan Ashton

My wife and I had the privilege of welcoming Jim into our home on a number of occasions. We were serving as missionaries in Manila, Philippines at the time and he was with us visiting Karen, a Gold Hill member. His wisdom and graciousness were a huge influence on us. While the news is sad, we rejoice that Jim is with our Lord and reunited with many to whom he ministered so faithfully.

Graham Nind

Feeling very sad but so grateful to God for the life and ministry of Jim. I joined Gold Hill Baptist Church as a Christian of a few months and was immediately captivated by Jim's preaching and presence. My heart would often burn within me as he spoke and he 'infected' me with his love for the scriptures. Alongside that he ingrained in me a deep conviction that the power of the Holy Spirit is vital if we are to live effectively for Christ.

I left Gold Hill to go into Baptist ministry. Those twin emphases, on the Word and the Spirit, have shaped my own ministry over the years. I owe him a debt of gratitude I can never repay. Unfortunately I am unable to be at the thanksgiving service but I will be there in spirit. Rest in peace my dear friend.

Tom Chacko

Promoted to glory.

Isobel Garriock

I knew Jim Graham in the 60's when he was in viewfield baptist church- he was a wonderful, gracious man and we thank God for the influence he made on our lives then. Also through his many books. Praise God for his promotion to glory - all your physical struggles are over and the best is yet to be. 💕💕💕😇🙏

David and Alison Goodyear

Jim helped and encouraged us so much. We will always be grateful for his wise council, compassion and wisdom to us personally. When much younger, our two children were so impressed when he came to stay. He actually spoke to them and helped with the washing up! The only visiting speaker who ever had a conversation with them and made them feel important. They have never forgotten that. We will never forget Jim and Anne and will remember them with love, appreciation and thankfulness .May the Lord surround his family with His love at this time.

Barry Cheesman

I first met Jim at Spring Harvest 1984 just before I began my first ministry at Seer Green. He was to become my "senior friend". Our friendship began then and I was to learn so much from both his life and teaching over the next 30+ years. In each of my 3 churches Jim helped shape what those churches became through his inspirational visits amongst us. I counted it a huge privilege that he(and Anne before her death) prayed for me and my ministry each and every Sunday morning.I treasured our friendship and was so blessed by his loving care and godly example.Rest in peace my friend.
