Ken Silva, Founder of Apprising Ministries, Has Died

Ken Silva, founder of the discernment blog Apprising Ministries, passed away at his home Sunday night.

Throughout his years in what Silva deemed 'online apologetics and discernment ministry,' many were impacted by his articles, research, and opinions. No doubt many would say that God used Silva and Apprising Ministries to open their eyes to the reality of the downgrade in the visible church today.

Though few knew Silva's face, many knew his figurative voice through his many writings, each written with an unmistakable style that belonged to Silva alone. Whether one loved what Silva was saying, or hated it, his words demanded attention.

Silva was open in recent months about his ongoing struggle with degenerative illness and surely many of his readers faithfully prayed that God would be glorified in the midst of the trial.

On a personal note, having served at one time alongside Ken at Apprising's sister site, Christian Research Network, I am thankful for the way in which the Lord used Ken in the life of Do Not Be Surprised. My prayers go out to Ken's family and friends.
