NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A popular Megachurch pastor in Southeastern California has died by suicide.
According to a statement from Harvest Church in Riverside, Jarrid Wilson died Monday evening.
Wilson was 30-years-old.
Wilson was open about his battle with depression and wanted to help people who were dealing with suicidal thoughts.
In a post on Monday Wilson tweeted:
Loving Jesus doesn’t always cure suicidal thoughts.— Jarrid Wilson (@JarridWilson) September 9, 2019
Loving Jesus doesn’t always cure depression.
Loving Jesus doesn’t always cure PTSD.
Loving Jesus doesn’t always cure anxiety.
But that doesn’t mean Jesus doesn’t offer us companionship and comfort.
He ALWAYS does that.
Most recently, he was an associate pastor at megachurch Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California. He joined the church 18 months ago.
“At a time like this, there are just no words,” Harvest senior pastor Greg Laurie told Christianity Today.
