TRI-STATE (WFIE) -
Local churches mourn on Sunday after the tragic shooting death of a minister in Indianapolis with deep ties to the tri-state.
Police say Lori Barcroft faces murder charges for gunning down Reverend Jaman Iseminger inside of his church Saturday morning.
On Sunday morning, two congregations, one in Evansville, the other in Boonville, took time to remember what the minister meant to them.
Three congregations were in mourning on Sunday, Iseminger's home church and two churches here in the tri state- Bethel Temple in Evansville, and the Boonville Worship Center, where many of the pastors and the parishioners knew Iseminger well.
"And she shot him and killed him," said Pastor Stephen Schwambach of Bethel Temple.
Sunday morning, two tri-state pastors had to break the sad news to their congregations.
"This young man was well known by a number of people in our congregation, and actually the name of the church was called bethel," said Schwambach.
According to police, Jaman Iseminger was at the church when a homeless woman approached, then fired a gun, and killing him.
Pastor Scott Pullum of the Boonville Worship Center, a close friend, says he's been feeling so many things since he heard the news on Saturday.
"Just hurt and in pain, a little bit of anger about just how something so foolish could happen like this," said Pullum.
Pullum says he and Iseminger had been friends for years. Iseminger attended church camp with Pullum and his youth group, and on occasion, Iseminger would deliver the message at Pullum's church.
"He was very unique in his own way. You felt his heart. You felt his passion. He ministered in a way with illustrations that got your attention, and you usually remembered most of his messages," said Pullum.
Both tri-state churches offered support to those dealing with the loss, turning to their faith for consolation.
"It gives you peace knowing that he's with the Lord," said Pullum.
Congregation members in Boonville also took up a collection for one of Iseminger's favorite causes- mission work in Africa.
