A beloved pastor died in a car accident while he was on the way to Louisiana, to help victims of Hurricane Laura.
Members of Northside Assembly of God in Bonifay, Florida still mourn over the sudden death of Pastor Chuck Glass. They shared their grief in a Facebook post. “We are deeply saddened and grieving for one of our West Florida Churches. Please help us lift up the family, friends, and congregation of Rev. Chuck Glass of Northside Assembly of God, Bonifay, FL.”
“Pastor Chuck suddenly passed away from an accident while heading to Louisiana to help those affected by Hurricane Laura. We are broken over this loss, and our prayers will be with his family and Northside.”
They remembered Pastor Chuck as a servant-hearted pastor and a faithful husband and father.
Nonetheless, the church takes comfort in knowing that their beloved pastor did not have to suffer pain. “As many of you probably know, Pastor Chuck passed away this morning. The doctors said that he was unconscious immediately after the accident and never felt pain. God showed him mercy.”
They continued, “When we went back to see him after he had passed, we saw that he had a grin on his face. That’s the thing about him, he was always smiling.”
Each member honored the late pastor by sharing their favorite memory with him. “He was an amazing human, and we are all saddened by his sudden loss.”
Pastors and churches across the area extended their condolences to the bereaved family. Pastor Franklin Graham invited his Twitter followers to pray for his bereaved loved ones. “Pray for him and for Pastor Chuck’s wife and four children.”
Meanwhile, Louisiana is still recovering from the damages brought by Hurricane Louisiana. Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards expressed the difficulty the state is experiencing with taking in more evacuees. He implored residents who are staying in hotels to stay there longer. “We don’t think we would be able to quickly absorb another 2, 3, 4,000 people into our hotels,” he said.
