Technically, this isn’t Christian music news, but since the Harvest Crusades have utilized CCM and rock music over the years to reach thousands of people across the country with the gospel, I thought you might want to hear this.
Christopher Laurie, 33, son of Pastor Greg Laurie and Cathe Laurie of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California, died Thursday morning in a car accident. He served as the art director at Harvest Christian Fellowship for the past three years.
According to a story in the LATimes.com, Laurie was “was driving alone ‘at a high rate of speed’ in the carpool lane of the eastbound Riverside Freeway in Corona when his station wagon collided with a California Department of Transportation tractor, the California Highway Patrol said. He was pronounced dead at the scene. No other vehicles were involved and no one else was injured, authorities said.”
Laurie is survived by his wife, Brittany, and daughter, Stella, as well as his brother Jonathan. Christopher and his wife are expecting another daughter in November.
In lieu of flowers, Harvest Christian Fellowship has established the Christopher Laurie Memorial Fund in memory of our friend, co-worker, family member, and brother in Christ. Proceeds from the fund will go to Brittany Laurie, Stella Laurie, and the soon-to-be daughter in order to assist them financially.
