Death of Rev. Cleveland Becton

The Emmanuel Pentecostal Church of Mesquite, Tx. has announced the death of our beloved Brother Cleveland Becton. I grieve with his family and friends. A remarkable man of God has passed from this shattered world into the Glory beyond.

Brother Becton served as the General Secretary of the UPCI for 25 years and as the Assistant General Superintendent for three years.  He was a current honorary member of the General Board of the UPCI.

“A prince and a great man has fallen. . . .”

– II Samuel 3:38

It is with heavy hearts that Emmanuel Pentecostal Church announces the passing of our beloved Pastoral Elder, Rev. Cleveland M. Becton.  Bro. Becton entered eternity peacefully and comfortably while surrounded by his family at approximately 10:45 p.m., November 16, 2010.

We grieve because of the vast emptiness his promotion leaves in our lives; we give thanks for his indelible impact upon our church and the world; and we rejoice in the God of his Salvation.

“Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful….  Enter into the joy of your Lord.”
