Family and friends of Ashley Ford, a beloved children’s ministry supervisor at the Cascade campus of the 12,000-member Ada Bible Church in Michigan, are now grieving after she died Monday from injuries she suffered in a two-vehicle crash on Sunday.
A WoodTV report said the accident happened at about 2:30 p.m. in Lowell Township.
Contacted for further details on the incident Tuesday, Michigan State Police officials said they would not be releasing any further details on the crash.
In an interview with The Christian Post Tuesday, John Ackerman, Ada Bible Church’s communications director, said he didn’t have any further details to share beyond what the church shared in a statement Monday via Facebook. It noted that the accident happened on Fulton Street near Lowell.
“She was taken to Spectrum Butterworth Hospital downtown with life-threatening injuries. This afternoon – Monday, April 16th, she passed away,” the church said.
“This is a difficult time for all and we would ask that you would be praying for Ashley’s family, friends and loved ones as they navigate this tragedy. Our hearts go out to all who are grieving her loss. We grieve the loss of Ashley in this life and celebrate that she is now with Jesus, whom she loved with fierce passion, joy and served with all her heart. We carry hope that we will one day see her again and be able to celebrate with her in the presence of Jesus. She always said that being in children’s ministry was her dream job,” the statement added.
