Jim Enloe went home to be with the Lord

  1. To the family of Jim Enloe…I am an employee of Bill Glass Champions for Life. When I first started working at the ministry back in July ‘05, I had the pleasure of meeting Jim Enloe. He was always so bright and cheerful and constantly singing the praises of the Lord. I ordered t-shirts from Jim and helped him get registered for almost every Weekend of Champions event we had for the year. It was a blessing to know him. God Bless You all.

  2. My heart and prayers go out to your family and friends. Jim Enloe was a teammate of Bill Glass Champions for Life Ministry and attended more than 300 of our prison events leading many many others to the choice of Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. He will be very missed. A champion is one who is described as a “militant advocate or defender”. Jim was truly a Champion.


  3. Jim was a special child of God that always had a kind word to say. He praised our Lord all the time. We’ll miss him on Weekends at the prisons and him coming by the office. We know he is really praising the Lord now, face to face.

  4. As Chairman of the Board of Bill Glass Champions For Life I will grieve losing Jim. What a spirit of love and compassion he had. We always knew we
    could count of Jim . He did whatever we requested. He was Godly in every way. We know that Jim a traveled a long road but the end will find him with
    a crown of glory, given to only a few. God Bless Jim and may your family be comforted by knowing how we loved him.

  5. Thinking of you at this time. I know it is Not easy loosing a dad. Remember the good times that were spent together, and let those memories help comfort you, and give you peace.Lean on God for the strength during these difficult days ahead. There is No Pain, Nor hurt that Jesus can not feel, or Heal…All things work together for his perfect will.There is No saddness Nor sorrow that He can’t mend. You’re In My thoughts & Prayers.
    Love, Ronda
