Supporting the family of Joby Seagren
On June 5th, 2021, Joby lost his life in a tragic kayaking accident. On that painful day, we lost a dear friend and brother in Christ. After an extensive search of the Missouri River, we are relieved to report that Joby’s body was found on June 14th, so that all who mourn his passing can finally pursue closure and peace.
A father of two and a beloved member of our Surprise Church community, we’re eager to support Joby’s family and children however we can. Check below for updates and announcements:


$500 Match to help with Funeral Expenses. A $500 matching donation has been offered to match financial gifts made to help pay for the family’s funeral expenses, which is their most immediate financial need. Click here to make a tax-deductible donation to this fund through Surprise, selecting the “Joby Seagren Memorial Fund.” 
Fund for education: Individuals have created a crowd-funding campaign to gather donations for the future education of Joby’s two children. You can learn about that campaign by clicking here
