Well-known prophetic minister and founder of Master Potter Ministries Jill Austin died Friday, Jan. 9., from surgery complications. She was 60.
Austin, a Messianic Jew, founded the California-based ministry more than 25 years ago. She also appeared on several Christian television programs, including The 700 Club.
"Our beloved Jill went home to be with Jesus," a statement released by Master Potter Ministries read. "Thank you all for standing with us and praying. She is now with her best friend, Holy Spirit, and dancing with her destiny."
Austin entered emergency surgery last Tuesday after doctors found that her intestines were twisted and cutting off her blood supply. Parts of her stomach, intestines and colon were removed because of infection.
By Friday, Austin's kidneys failed and her blood pressure dropped. She was unable to recover and passed away that night.
Last April, Austin sat down with CBN News Middle East Bureau Chief Chris Mitchell to discuss her book, Dancing with Destiny, and what she felt God was calling Christians to do in a time of war and economic downturn.
Austin also taught at the International House of Prayer's Forerunner School of Prayer and had a strong interest in praying for Hollywood.
Funeral services were held Monday in Grandview, Mo. A second memorial service will be held Friday, Jan. 16 at Harvest Rock Church in Pasadena, Calif. The service will broadcast live on the church's Web site.
