Youth Pastor, 6-month-old Son Die in House Fire

Several of my friends spent the last week at The Gospel Coalition Conference in Chicago. This is a biannual conference that brings thousands of evangelical Christian leaders together.

One of the attendees of this conference returned home from this event and tragically lost his life, along with the life of his infant son.

Please take time to educate your church members and your family on the importance of smoke detectors in your home and workplaces.
