In our announcement earlier this week regarding the passing of Reverend Amanda (Mandy) Iahn, we incorrectly stated  Rev. Iahn's possible cause of death as COVID-19. This information was not corroborated on our end and has since been confirmed as inaccurate by Rev. Iahn's family.

We apologize to anyone—particularly Rev. Iahn's family—that has been adversely impacted by release of this incorrect information. We are deeply sorry and continue to send prayers of comfort for the family.

Let us remember with thanksgiving the life and ministry of Rev. Amanda (Mandy) Iahn, 41, who died Sunday evening, March 29, 2020, in Wilmington, NC.
