In a statement shared via social media, Pastor Young said LeeBeth, 34, died Sunday night. LeeBeth also served as a preacher at the Dallas church.
Through his leadership as founding and Senior Pastor of Fellowship Church, the church has been consistently ranked as one of the most attended churches in North America over the past decade. Since 1990, Fellowship has grown from 30 families to multiple campuses in Dallas/Fort Worth (TX), Miami (FL), Northport (FL), Norman (OK), and an online campus as well.
In a statement shared via social media, Pastor Young said LeeBeth, 34, died Sunday night.
“It is with great sadness that I write these words. Last night, our precious and cherished daughter LeeBeth passed away,” Young said. “She was our firstborn, and we celebrate her life. LeeBeth was a bright, intelligent, strong, creative, witty, and faithful young woman. We love our daughter, and she loved the Lord.”
“Because of her relationship with Jesus, she is now healed and whole in His presence. We ask that you pray for our family, our church, and so many others who loved LeeBeth deeply,” he continued.
Young didn’t include a cause for his daughter’s death in his statement.
LeeBeth is survived by her parents Ed and Lisa Young and three siblings. All of the family are involved in Ed Young’s ministry at the Fellowship Church.
In an Instagram post from June 2019, LeeBeth wrote about her father and that she was “so blessed God let me be his daughter!”
