Nabeel El-Farrah (1983-2014)

It is with a broken heart that we share the tragic news of the unexpected passing of our brother and friend, Nabeel El-Farrah, our Contemporary Worship Pastor. He went home to be with the Lord early in the morning on Saturday October 4th after becoming unconscious and unresponsive in the middle of the night while at home. Attempts by EMS and ER Medical personnel to resuscitate him were unsuccessful. Our hearts go out to Nabeel's wife, Rachel, their 5 month old daughter, Sophia and his entire family.

Please pray that the God of all comfort will help our church family comfort one another in and through our pain. May the Lord also help us grow closer to Him through our grief. And on behalf of the staff, we covet your prayers. Our hearts are so heavy and we are all in a state of shock even still. We know Nabeel was prepared and ready to meet Jesus...it's just that we were not prepared and ready to let him go. Our hope is that somehow... someway, God will be glorified, even in our sorrow; and His church will be edified as we comfort one another.
