America’s beloved Bible Prophecy Teacher Dr. Jimmy DeYoung Sr. passed away early Sunday morning, according to his wife Judy.  Dr. DeYoung had been admitted to Memorial Hospital on Aug. 7.  His wife had requested prayer for her husband a short time after he was diagnosed with COVID.  He had preached at the Church of the Highlands in Harrison on Aug. 1.  That was his last known speaking engagement.

Dr. DeYoung hosted a daily radio program, “Prophecy Today”, that was heard on several hundred radio stations including WDYN, the station he signed on the air in 1968.  Dr. DeYoung traveled the world teaching Bible Prophecy.  He was a frequent guest on the John Ankerberg Show and Day of Discovery.  His lessons are heard on the Bible Broadcasting Network, Moody Radio Network and VCY America among others. 

Dr. DeYoung was a credentialed journalist.  He reported from Israel for 23 years. Dr. DeYoung and his wife Judy witnessed the scud missile attacks on Israel  in 1991.

Dr. DeYoung met and interviewed many international leaders including Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, Israeli former Foreign Minister Shimon Peres, former Jerusalem Mayor Ehud Olmert, former Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, former Defense Minister Moshe Arens, Jordan's Foreign Minister Marwan Muasher, and the late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.

Dr. DeYoung’s wife of 60 years, Judy, posted on Facebook, “God has called a faithful servant home. Dr Jimmy DeYoung passed away early this morning at Memorial Hospital in Chattanooga, TN. Judy, his loving wife and companion in ministry for over 60 years, was by his side until the very end. He is survived by a large family who loved him dearly. We covet your prayers at this time.

To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord!!”

 

WDYN General manager Tom Sneed said, “Jimmy introduced me to WDYN as a young announcer in the early days of the station.  He said DeYoung had not only been a fellow broadcaster but his friend for over 50 years. He said, "Jimmy can’t be replaced."  He said “Prophecy Today” with Dr. DeYoung was one of the most popular programs on the station.
