A pastor at the Harvest Christian Fellowship Church in Riverside who spoke openly about his battles with depression died by suicide Monday night.

Jarrid Wilson was known for giving impassioned sermons on mental health issues, including his own struggles with depression.

Hours before he took his life, Wilson tweeted a message about suicide, saying “Loving Jesus doesn’t always cure suicidal thoughts.”

Wilson joined the church in 2018 and founded Anthem of Hope, a mental health nonprofit helping people deal with depression and suicidal thoughts.
