Pastor Kermit Wilson Jr. of New Life Ministries Church in Greensboro, North Carolina, Dies of the Coronavirus Plague

Rev. Kermit Wilson Jr.

The young pastor and his wife had lots of questions about getting the COVID-19 vaccine.

What about the baby they wanted? Would it wreck their natural immune system, damage their hearts? Was it immoral due to the controversy surrounding its development, they asked themselves.

“Answers to which no longer matter now that COVID crystalized his lungs and claimed his last breath,” a heartbroken Miracle King Wilson said after burying her 43-year-old husband, the Rev. Kermit Wilson Jr.

Kermit Wilson, who had moved to Cary but was the pastor of New Life Ministries Church of Greensboro on Vandalia Road, spent 41 days in the ICU at WakeMed Hospital before his death Sept. 17, after contracting the deadly virus.

He leaves behind three children ages 10, 6 and 2.

And a soulmate who despite her grief is opening the doors of the church he led to urge others to get the shot. New Life Ministries, which had yet to reopen for in-person services after closing in March 2020, has partnered with the Guilford County Health Department for a clinic on Friday with both appointments and walk-ins available to the public. Both initial and booster shots are available.

Miracle Wilson called the health department to inquire about scheduling a clinic the day before his funeral.
