Statement from Seacoast Church on circumstances of Darrin Patrick’s Passing

Charleston, S.C. and St. Louis, M.O. – July 2, 2020 – Today, we learned that the medical examiner reviewing the circumstances of Darrin’s death released his findings and has ruled Darrin’s death a suicide. We are devastated by this news. We do not know, and may not ever know or fully understand the reasons behind this tragedy. We are reminded that we are often unaware of the ways that those close to us are hurting and struggling. We will recommit ourselves to loving those around us and making sure that they truly know how precious their lives are. We urge anyone who is struggling with depression, despair, or suicidal thoughts to reach out for help. We have resources available for anyone who needs them, as well as more information about Darrin and ways to support his family, at
