The church features "an international community of people who are finding renewed hope, profound love and deep purpose by putting the undiluted teachings of Jesus Christ into practice," according to the organization's website.

"While divorce, depression, obesity and out-of-control children are increasingly the norm these days, at the Remnant we are experiencing healed marriages, increasing joy, restored health, repaired finances and children who love to follow the guidance of their parents."

More than three decades ago Gwen had launched the Weigh Down Workshop – a Bible study series that "directed hurting, imprisoned souls how to turn away from destructive vices and unwanted behaviors and emotions – such as overeating, alcohol indulgence, anger and depression – and point them to a genuine relationship with God."

Her book – and the creation of the Remnant Fellowship Church – would later follow.

What happened to Gwen Shamblin Lara?

The author was one of seven people killed in a plane crash in May of 2021.

A Cessna C501 crashed into Percy Priest Lake near Smyrna, Tennessee, after taking off from a nearby airport about 11 am on May 29.

“Our efforts have transitioned from a rescue effort to that of a recovery effort. … We are no longer … looking for live victims at this point,” said Rutherford County Fire Rescue Captain Joshua Sanders.

The seven killed were Brandon Hannah, Gwen and Joe Lara, David L. Martin, Jennifer J. Martin, Jessica Walters and Jonathan Walters.

The small plane was reportedly bound for Palm Beach International Airport in Florida.

The plane was registered to JL&GL Productions LP, which the Laras owned together, according to WTVF.

Gwen's daughter Elizabeth Hannah reportedly sent out a text message to Remnant church members asking for prayers.

She said that the plane had to go down "for a controlled, quick landing," according to the outlet.

Hannah said that the Laras were on the plane with other church leaders.
