Jim O McClain

Jim O. McClain was an ordained bishop of the Church of God and had served in denominational leadership until his retirement in 1989.

Early in his ministry, McClain served as pastor of churches in Alligood, N.C., Riverside and Avondale Estates, Georgia, and Kannapolis, N.C. At the time of his pastorates, the Avondale Estates and Kannapolis congregations were among the largest in their states.

As a pastor, he generously supported foreign missions and was known for supporting missionaries. This led to his subsequent service for 18 years in Church of God World Missions.

For eight years he was a missions representative, traveling from church to church to encourage support for missionaries and missions projects, visiting hundreds of congregations across the country. He then served for six years as field representative/assistant director, rising finally to be elected the general director of World Missions.

Following his missions ministry, he was state administrative bishop in South Georgia, returning to the pastorate before his retirement.

His extensive travels and knowledge of the fields where the church was established, his acknowledged preaching ability and his genuine compassion made him ideal for the missions leadership. He was widely known and greatly respected for his generous heart, his enthusiastic leadership and his spiritual passion.

Brother McClain joined the host in Heaven on Tuesday, July 7, 2009.
