In Memoriam

by on

Here is a special prayer item that we shared with the AiG staff this morning, and which we now share with you.

It is a very sad day in the history of the AiG ministry—please read the all-staff email below about a dear friend and staff member:


Dear AiG staff members,

This morning, Debbie Brewer called me from Georgia to tell me that “Neal is with Jesus.”

Neal Brewer, a dear personal friend of many of us and a special friend of the AiG ministry (and a part-time employee in our Advancement Department), passed away unexpectedly last night from a heart attack.

Please pray for his wife Debbie—she is in utter shock, of course.  She knows Neal is with the Lord, but this is also a terrible blow to her.

This photo of Neal and Debbie was taken at an AiG event in Wyoming two years ago.

What a reminder to all of us about the brevity of life, and that at any time, any one of us could also be called home.  What a reminder of how important it is to tell people about the Savior—to proclaim the gospel to unbelievers.

Neal had a love for the AiG ministry because of our stand on the authority of the Word of God and our emphasis on the gospel. Neal and Debbie, by the way, sponsored the animatronic sauropod dinosaur in the Main Hall of the Creation Museum.

They supported the AiG ministry in many other ways. Neal was first introduced to us through contact made by AiG speaker Carl Kerby.

We are so going to miss him.

Please pray for Neal’s family and friends as they deal with his sudden death. We await information on his memorial service. Neal was 58.




“Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints” (Psalm 116:15).

It is precious to the Lord when a Christian dies, as now they are in His presence—they did not suffer the second death (eternal separation from God), but are with Him and praising Him for eternity.  No more suffering in a sin-cursed universe.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
