Pastor Dies Of COVID After Summer Camp Speech

Tulsa’s ABC News affiliate reports:

The Rev. Wade Morris, 51, an evangelist who spoke across the country, died Tuesday morning after contracting COVID-19. He was a guest speaker at Falls Creek Youth Camp last month.

Morris spoke at the Christian summer camp near Davis, Oklahoma during the week of July 5, according to Brian Hobbs, Communications Director of Oklahoma Baptists, which puts on the camp. Morris started showing symptoms of COVID-19 the week following the summer camp, which hosts about 4,000 participants each week.

Oklahoma State Epidemiologist Jolianne Stone said the State Department of Health does track outbreaks of COVID-19, “however, unless we are notified by Falls Creek about cases, or individuals report attending Falls Creek/other camps, we would not know of cases that might be associated.”
