We celebrate, remember and honor an Awesome Man of God: Rev. Robert Rasmussen

On May 6, 2017 Rev. Rasmussen accepted ISAAC’s Lifetime Achievement Award. Preceding the Banquet Rev. Rasmussen was faced with serious health challenges and was placed in hospice care.

Many believed that this Award would be given posthumously. However, we thank God that Rev. Rasmussen attended the Banquet as a walking miracle. That night during his acceptance speech, he reminded our community that God did not want us to forget those who are oppressed.

We thank God for his legacy and our extra time with Rev. Rasmussen. He will be truly missed!
