The Longview Missionary Baptist Church family is mourning the sudden loss of their student Pastor.

According to KLTV, Ryan Carlisle passed away suddenly while working out at a local gym on Friday (June 28th) at the age of 38.

The church confirmed his passing and funeral services are set for Monday July 1st at Mobberly Baptist Church at 2 p.m.

Carlisle has been on staff since April 2018 and served as the youth Pastor of the church.

Ryan was a familiar face in Longview as he was a graduate of Longview High School and got his degrees from UT Tyler and Texas Baptist Institute and Seminary.

He is survived by his wife Bridgit and a father of two children.

A Gofund Me account was setup for assistance with expenses.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
