  4. To Mother Nave and Dubose family and all the saints of Greater Harvest Church of God In Christ, we at Bethel Church of God In Christ send our sincere prayers and love in the passing of this great giant in the gospel, Pastor Paul Nave. Pastor Nave was my close friend and mentor. He was a man that believed in pure holiness and sanctification. Dad Nave was an old time preacher of the lord and loved to church. He would dance in the spirit and speak in tongues as he was praising the lord. We loved him at Bethel. He would visit us and lift the service, what a anointed preacher he was. I thank the lord for the life he lived and just knowing him. Another soldier gone in. “Precious in the eyes of the lord, is the death of his saints” We at Bethel love and honor Pastor Paul Nave.

  20. My sincere condolences to the family of Elder Nave. We fist met at Denver Water when he would come in to pay the bill. As one of the first “Black individuals working at the “front desk” I enjoyed listening to AND adhering to his” good, sound and “correct advice”, as well as the many conversations regarding life and life hereafter. I am now sure he is walking the streets of gold and drinking from the pure water fountain of life. Rest Well Elder Nave, I will see you again.

We love you all much!

  23. My condolences to the Nave family. I am praying for strength for your family.
    I met Reverend Nave a lot of years ago when I worked with his daughter Sandra (Nave) Dubose at Public Service Company. He was a great man with a platinum personality! He will be greatly missed.
