Adam Weber was one of the last people Jarrid Wilson reached out to the night he died by suicide. Seeing those texts from Jarrid now “makes my heart hurt,” Adam wrote the morning after his friend ended his life.
The mission, though, is continuing. Jarrid’s wife, Juli, is picking up the mantle where her late husband left off. Adam is the pastor of Embrace Church in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, where the ministry Anthem of Hope, the advocacy organization founded by Jarrid and Juli, will hold its first event since the September death of the associate pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California.
“What better place to start than the last place Jarrid looked to for hope, and that’s what we’re gonna do,” Juli told Faithwire, “we’re gonna go share some hope.”
