Dr. Dennis Duane Powell

March 21, 1961 ~ July 21, 2022 (age 61)


Dr. Dennis Powell passed away on July 21, 2022 at the age of 61.

Dennis was a man devoted to his family and his faith. He earned two Master’s degrees in Divinity and Arts of Religion from Oakland City University and Doctorate of Ministry from Asbury Theological Seminary. He served with General Baptist National Missions for 14 years, ministering in Florida, where he was a pioneer with the YES (Youth Evangelism Service) and planting churches across Illinois and Southern Indiana. Dennis then served as pastor in Arkansas for another 14 years before moving to Clay, Kentucky in 2017 where he pastored Redeeming Love Church for a time. He also worked with Intervarsity Christian Fellowship Campus Ministries for 7 years as Regional Director. His passion for a life of service and witness to the Christian faith was obvious to all who interacted with him. Always the encourager, he enjoyed cheering on and coaching cross country and track and field student athletes in both Arkansas and Webster County where he could be heard cheering on the far side of the course. His far-reaching impact will never be known this side of eternity.

Dennis is survived by his wife of 36 years, Pamela Noel Powell. He is also survived by his three children: Austin Powell and family: wife Jessica, son William, and daughter Dora; Amy Cook and family: husband  Christopher, and son Tucker; and Andrew Powell; his three siblings and families: Greg and Myra Powell, Janet and Jeff Stearns, and Terry Powell; and his parents: Gilbert and Anna Powell.

Visitation will be held at Redeeming Love General Baptist Church in Clay, Kentucky on July 24th from 4:00-6:00pm. Funeral service will be at 11:00am on July 25th at the church, with graveside service at Ebenezer Cemetery at 2:00 pm in Richland, Indiana. In lieu of flowers or gifts, Dennis requested donations  be made to General Baptist National Missions for church planting efforts.
