Celebrating the life of a champion – Mac Gober

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

A champion has gone home. Mac Gober was founder and director of Canaan Land Ministries in Autaugaville, Ala., and originator and founder of the Elite CX Team at Kenneth Copeland Ministries. He fought a good fight, ran a good race, finished his course and went home to be with his Savior on May 5, 2014.

I can tell you, there’s no question about the crown of glory and reward coming to this man of faith. I’ve known and ministered with Mac for many years. He and I prayed together, rode motorcycles together and won souls together.

At one time, while ministering with Mac, we saw over a thousand people come to the Lord in one service. As Mac gave his testimony, we saw thousands more come to the Lord in other services. Mac, Ben Priest, Jerry Savelle, Dennis Burke and I baptized over 1,000 people in one day in Eagle Mountain Lake. It was magnificent! It was the most wonderful “tired” I have ever experienced.

There’s just story after story after story about Mac’s faith.

Mac and Sandra stood together in every kind of spiritual storm the devil was able to throw at them. We give the Lord praise and thanksgiving for his life, his testimony, his family and for the many, many, many people who Mac helped. People who everybody else had given up on. People who, in some cases, were literally found helpless, homeless and at death’s door—literally in the street gutter. Mac and Sandra took them in.

In the early days, they took them into their home—and they only lived in a little place. In the nighttime, if you had to go to the bathroom, you had to get the guy out who was sleeping in the tub. But anybody who knows Mac knows heaven is his kind of place. Praise God! All of the people who have come into the kingdom of God through his and Sandra’s ministry, what a time they are having there. What a rejoicing!

I want to remind you this is what we all live for, why we do what we do. This is our hope beyond the grave—our VICTORY OVER DEATH! What a rejoicing time it is.

Jesus has manifested Himself in Mac’s life, and also in his departure. We give God the praise and glory for everything He’s given to us through Mac and Sandra Gober.
