The son of prominent evangelist Greg Laurie died in a car accident Thursday morning.

Christopher Laurie, 33, was killed when his vehicle crashed into the back of a Caltrans truck on the eastbound 91 Freeway near Serfas Club Drive in Corona, Calif. He was on his way to Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside.

"Please pray for Pastor Greg and the Laurie family," says Friday's devotional by Pastor Greg Laurie, who leads Harvest, a 15,000-member church. "Christopher Laurie ... was called home to be with the Lord."

Christopher served as the art director at Harvest for the past three years.

In addition to his parents, he is survived by his wife, Brittany, daughter, Stella, and his brother, Jonathan. His wife is expecting another daughter in November.

The accident comes just weeks before the well-known evangelist, Greg Laurie, is scheduled to lead his 19th annual Southern California Harvest Crusade at Angel Stadium, Aug. 15-17.
