The official statement from the church released Sunday said, "We are sad to lose the presence of our pastor, shepherd, father, and brother. We are thankful, however, for his life, love, and influence on the individuals and ministries he inspired for the last 30 years ... The world will never be the same because of Billy Joe Daugherty. "It was a peaceful passing with his family and loved ones by his side." In addition to founding one of Tulsa's largest churches, Daugherty was founder of Victory Christian School, International Victory Bible Institute with 911 campuses in 93 countries, Victory World Missions Training Center which has sent hundreds of missionaries around the world, and the Tulsa Dream Center, providing food, clothing and medical, educational and recreational services to north Tulsans. His television show, Victory in Jesus, reached more than 100 million households in North America, in addition to satellite and internet distribution worldwide. He and his wife, Victory co-pastor Sharon Daugherty, have written more than a dozen books. Originally from Magnolia, Ark., he attended Oral Roberts University, graduating with a bachelor's degree in Christian education. He was a youth minister in the 1970s at Sheridan Christian Center, and became senior pastor there in 1976 when the pastor retired. In 2005, he made national news when a man came forward at an altar call on a Sunday morning and slugged him in the face, opening a cut over his eye that required two stitches. Daugherty went to the Tulsa Jail to forgive the man, did not press assault charges, and later wrote a book about the experience: "Knocked Down But Not Out." In October 2007, Daugherty was named interim president of Oral Roberts University after ORU president Richard Roberts stepped down in the wake of allegations that he misused university funds. Daugherty was hospitalized last month with a viral infection in his throat when tests discovered the cancer.
