Larry was a friend who sticks closer than a brother.No one is indispensable and the Lord knows what He is doing when He calls His warriors home but Larry will certainly leave a huge gap in the ministry and amongst my friends.Apart from his roles as a family man, Larry was a true apologist, teacher, shepherd and friend. We have learnt through TCSA of the untimely passing on of Pastor Larry.
He cared for truth, but he also cared for those who are deceived as well as those who are the deceivers.
This concern for the people as well as the doctrine was no doubt borne out of his many years in pastoral work.
Most people who know the name Larry De Bruyn, know him as a discerner and apologist. He wrote and spoke indefatigably against error and his work is visible all over the internet and on countless bookshelves and in the hearts of thousands.
Not only did he have an excellent grasp of the theological issues but he exhibited a Christ-like spirit towards even his opponents.
The following are just a few of the tributes that were read at the Memorial Service for our dear colleague Pastor Larry De Bruyn on Sunday January 7th in Dale City, Virginia.
