So sad to hear that one of the greatest biblical scholars that I came to know in 1989 has passed away. It was because this man of the gospel, my former pastor, “The Professor “ as I always referred to him has gone home to be with the Lord. It was because of Bishop Alfred Perry that I’ve grown in the knowledge and understanding of Gods word to be the man of God I am today. I will forever miss you dad, one of my treasured fathers of the gospel. Rest in best peace young man. I love you. Aman.

To the Perry family

My condolences and prayers are with you during your time of grief. Bishop Perry was dedicated to fulfilling the purpose of his calling. He impacted many lives from the day he arrived in San Antonio to the day of his demise. Had it not been for Bishop Perry's encouragement and assistance I would not have realized my desire to attend and graduate college. I would not have acquired a deeper understanding of the Word of God if not for his teaching. The Bishop did so many positive things for his people. Remember him as that spirit of love that sought to enlighten us to the true meaning of holiness.
Perry family, you will be in my thoughts and prayers.

My family and I attended Christ Temple twenty plus years ago. Bishop often invited us over to his house. Mother Perry would make us sandwiches. We'd pray and seek God. Many good times with Bishop Perry. You could never leave out of his sight without a word of prayer from Bishop. For that, I will always be thankful. Our prayers are with you.
Sincerely, Neal and Ross Family
