Akim Demon Moody

Assistant Pastor Akim Demon Moody, 51, of Farrell, passed away suddenly on Wednesday, January 3, 2024, at AHN Grove City Hospital.


Akim was born in Muncie, IN, on August 6, 1972, a son of Mack and Donna (Manning) Moody.


On June 30, 2007 Akim married Mary L. Wofford; she survives.


He was a faithful member of Greater Mount Zion Church of God In Christ, Farrell, where he was also serving as Assistant Pastor. He was transitioning to become the pastor of Meadville's Beacon Liberty Street Church of God in Christ, effective March 1, 2024, until his untimely death.


A 1992 graduate of Meadville High School, Akim entered the US Marine Corps on February 1, 1993 and served his country honorably for 13 years. He was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals, Marine Corps Good Conduct Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal, Sea Service Deployment Ribbon, and National Defense Service Medal, among others. Upon his discharge in 2006 Akim became employed by Bethesda Children's Services until 2011. He went on to be employed at the State Correctional Institute in Mercer where he was still working and much respected. He was a member of International Brotherhood of Correctional Officers, a member of the Western PA Jurisdiction Evangelistic Department of the COGIC, and the Erie District COGIC Evangelistic President. Akim loved following all sports especially basketball and football but his true passion was ministering to troubled youth. He had a positive impact on the lives of many young men. Akim will be remembered as a man of service. He served his family, his church, his community, his country and his God. He will be greatly missed.
