In Memoriam: Joyce E. Hart, Wife of the Late Dr. B. Sam Hart

Joyce HartJoyce E. Hart, the wife of the late Dr. B. Sam Hart, passed away on Sunday, September 23 – one day after celebrating her 84th birthday.  

This past Sunday, a home-going service was held for Mrs. Hart, whose faithfulness was recalled by those who knew her.

“She was a faithful supporter to her husband’s ministries as he planted churches throughout the east coast and ministered throughout the United Stated and Caribbean,” noted the staff of GOGF Ministries, which Hart’s husband founded in 1961.

Hart’s husband, who was an NRB Hall of Fame member, Milestone Award recipient, and long-time Board member, passed away earlier this year after five decades of preaching through the airwaves.

The Harts are survived by four of their five children, 13 grandchildren and nine great grandchildren.  Dr. Tony Hart, their son, presently serves as President of GOGF Ministries as well as Senior Pastor of Montoco Bible Fellowship and a Member of NRB's Board of Directors.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to GOGF (previously the Grand Old Gospel Fellowship) Ministries. For more information, contact
