‘At Peace With His God’: Atlanta Charismatic Pastor Shot Dead in Alleged Case of Mistaken Identity

by | Mar 16, 2021 | Culture

An Atlanta pastor’s family and church family were left reeling with grief and questions after an unexpected fatal shooting.

A member of Higher Dimensions Church International in Decatur, Georgia, announced Pastor Kevin D. Nick’s death in a Facebook post on Saturday, March 16, 2021.

“He was certainly a general in the kingdom and will be greatly missed by all whose life he so fervently touched,” Tremaine Thomas said of Nick. Though they are heavy-hearted, the congregation says, “we rejoice knowing he is at peace with his God.”

The beloved pastor, it seems, was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Two shootings were reported in the area of Nick’s home and church Friday evening, though authorities have not said if they were connected. DeKalb County police found Nick in his car, crashed between two trees. He was unconscious, without a pulse and with multiple gunshot wounds.

Witnesses told the authorities following the shooting that two carsful of people surrounded Nick’s SUV, and one person got out, asking if he were “Terrance.”

Police arrested a 16-year-old boy on Saturday but have not said whether he’s the shooter, WSBTV reports.

Left with an open investigation and the reality of life without a beloved faith leader, Higher Dimensions Church members turn to their heavenly Father for peace and comfort.

Time is most certainly filled with swift transition. It’s hard to grasp that I was just with you 30 days ago celebrating…

They rejoice that Nick’s life, though cut short, “ended in victory.”

HDCI, Many of us are still hurt and grieving right now. Even though our leader Apostle Kevin D Nick life was ended…

The community has rallied around the family in their time of need and looks toward the promise of being together in life everlasting one day.

And until then, Nick’s loved ones encourage any who have information regarding the shooter to report it to Atlanta authorities. {eoa}
