The death of Eddie Crain, the children’s pastor at NorthPointe Community Church in Fresno, California, shocked the Northpointe congregation ... Crain leaves behind his wife and five sons.
Northpointe pastor Steve Williams spoke very highly of Crain:
"We don't get over our grief, we get through it. We can have confidence that God walks through this with us,"
"In Hebrews 13 God promises that, 'I will never leave you nor forsake you.' So we can confidently say, 'The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?'
"We can trust that God is good. Even when there are so many questions we just don't have the answers for — about why, why now, and what's the meaning in this? Everything that we know about God leads us to trust all that we don't understand about God.
"We're in uncharted waters as a church family, but we know that Jesus goes with us. And that we will do this together."
