Reverend Jack Shaffer, served the Lord faithfully for more than 65 years in the service of the Lord alongside his beloved wife of 66 years, Florence Shaffer. 

He was ushered into the presence of the Lord on the morning of September 12, 2023, there to take up his crown, that he might then lay it at the feet of our Lord. Pentecostal by experience, holiness of life, and a faithful servant’s heart marked his steps. A heart for missions, a heart for the kingdom, a heart of compassion and joy surrounded his every day. He served 30 years in Pentecostal Church of God, helped build, establish, maintain various churches across the United States while faithfully supporting missions around the world. As educator of ACE schools, he taught in a model classroom as an example of truth and fidelity.
