Jim Downey was my director of missions and supervisor for four years at BCM at Ball State. After I left he was a man of wisdom for me when facing various things as a new pastor. Jim loved Jesus and he loved his family. He was a tender warrior. I loved him and wish I could call him this very moment. I miss him dearly. Jim is now in the presence of our Lord, welcomed in as a good and faithful servant.

I send my deepest sympathy to the entire Downey Family. Always remember the wonderful times that you spent with James. Please find comfort in what the Bible says about the opportunity of seeing James again under the very best of conditions right here on the earth: "He will swallow up death forever." (Isaiah 25:8) For more comfort please go to and then search for "When Someone You Love Dies" Brochure.
