He was 66 years old.
On its Facebook page Tuesday evening, the church posted a photo of Holcomb with a statement on his passing.
“Our Beloved Apostle, Bishop and Pastor Nate Holcomb received his promotion this afternoon and is now in the presence of the Lord,” the post read.
Apostle Nate fought a good fight and he finished his course on this side,” said Bishop LaDell Thomas Jr., with Cathedral of Deliverance and Praise in Harker Heights, in a post. “He will be greatly missed but never forgotten.”
Killeen City Councilman Gregory Johnson, a congregant at the church, remembered Holcomb in a Facebook post Tuesday evening, calling him a role model.
