In Wednesday’s Convocation, Liberty University mourned the loss of one of its own, alumnus Josh Allen (’09), who was killed Monday night in a car accident in New Mexico. A special time of prayer was held for his family.

The 30-year-old was an adjunct professor of religion with the School of Religion’s online program and was the pastor of Grace Bible Church in Las Cruces, N.M. He is survived by his wife, Shelley (’09), and their 9-month-old son, Josiah.

Allen was en route to El Paso, Texas, to pick up his brother from the airport when another vehicle, traveling the wrong direction on the interstate, crashed into him. (View a news report on the accident.)

His father, Dan Allen, also a Liberty alumnus and vocational minister, asked for the prayers of the Liberty family during this difficult time.
