Pastor David Harrison

Faithful CBS Ambassador Called To His Eternal Home 

Pastor David HarrisonThe College of Biblical Studies family joins with many in mourning the passing of PastorCarl David Harrison; CBS alum, teacher, and friend.

While David's passing is a shocking loss and seems an untimely intrusion into a life of service to so many, we are reminded of Paul's words to Timothy: "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith; in the future there is laid up for me the  crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day; and not only to me, but also to all who have loved His appearing" (2 Tim 4:6-8).

David fought the good fight, finished the course set out for him, and loved (longed for) Christ's appearing! And so, as we praise God and give Him the glory for the steadfast influence of this disciple and discipler, husband and father, and shepherd to a growing flock, it is the sudden absence of this godly influence that causes our hearts to ache all the more. Thus, our prayers for comfort go out to his covenant partner, Melissa, and their children, as well as to the body at First Church Heights and David's many friends.

CBS is blessed to have recently captured a sampling of Pastor Harrison's passion for the Word and growing influence upon many in this brief video:
