World Christian Broadcasting is grieving the loss of J. D. Elliott, the chairman of our Board of Directors and an important figure in the Nashville business scene.

J.D. Elliott, 1936-2015

He was President of The Memorial Foundation and also chairman of the Metro Sports Authority in Nashville. He served on many boards including the Executive Board of the Boy Scouts of America, Lipscomb University, Nashville Zoo, American College of Healthcare Executives, American Red Cross, Alive Hospice, Goodpasture Christian School, and the American Hospital Association. He was a Paul Harris Fellow at the Rotary Club. J.D. was voted one of the Nashville Business Journalís Most Admired CEOs last year.

J.D. Elliott loved his friends and they loved him. He was known for his hospitality and welcoming spirit. He was the definition of a servant leader: humble, kind, giving, and a true gentleman. He had a quiet but strong presence, and was respected by all.

He loved God, and his life was a testimony to Godís love and presence. He served as an elder for the Madison Church of Christ, Madison, Tennessee, for 25 years. He regularly taught adult Bible classes.

J.D. and his wife, Anita, have three grown children, two daughters and a son, six grandchildren, and one great granddaughter. His impact on the community, the church, and his family was far-reaching. His loss is deeply felt.

After reflecting on his own grief, Charles Caudill, President of World Christian Broadcasting, wrote to the Board and the staff, ďLetís not focus on our loss. Instead letís focus on the wonderful life he lived and the amazing amount of good he accomplished and the countless number of people he influenced. J. D. would not want us to be sad. He would want us to get it together and move forward. So letís honor him by doing that. He would consider it his greatest honor. What a great and Godly man!!!

Kent Brantley, M.D., and his family went to Liberia to treat people who came to the clinic with a variety of illnesses. While they were there, Dr. Brantley was diagnosed with Ebola, a disease that is generally fatal. Word of his condition spread across the globe, and his name became a household word.

Dr. Kent Brantley

Paul Ladd, World Christian Broadcastingís Senior Correspondent, interviewed him in early July of this year. In Part 3 of this 5-part interview, Paul asked Dr. Brantley three questions:

  1. How did it make you feel when you learned that people all over the world were praying for you?
  2. Did you ever feel that God had left you?
  3. When did you know you would be OK?

Dr. Kent Brantley and his wife have written a book that has just been published: Called for Life: How Loving Our Neighbor Led Us into the Heart of the Ebola Epidemic. It is available at all bookstores.

As you listen to this interview you will see into the heart of this godly, sacrificial man.
