Obituary : Amanda Grace Blackburn, wife of Resonate Church pastor Davey Blackburn dies after being shot

The pregnant wife of a former Upstate youth pastor has died after being shot in the head during a home invasion, according to church officials.
Amanda Grace Blackburn, wife of Resonate Church pastor Davey Blackburn, died Wednesday morning, according to a Facebook post by the church.
The post just after 11:30 a.m. Wednesday said:  “Extremely heavy hearts today. Our pastor's wife, Amanda Blackburn, passed away this morning. Please pray for the Blackburn and Byars family during this difficult time. Although we are hurting tremendously, we are still hoping and believing that great things are still yet to come from this. ‘Although we don't know what to do, our eyes are on you.’"
Amanda Grace Blackburn’s father-in-law posted on Facebook that doctors were testing her brain activity and blood flow and that one bullet is lodged in her head.
The home invasion was reported at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, according to WYFF News 4’s NBC sister station in Indianapolis.
"We found the adult female victim in the home unconscious (with) head trauma. She was transported to Methodist Hospital in critical condition," Officer Rafael Diaz said.
WTHR reported that Blackburn, 28, was in the home with her 1-year-old toddler, who was not injured.  Friends and family said Blackburn is 12-weeks' pregnant.
The victim’s husband, Davey Blackburn, was reportedly at the gym and found his wife wounded when he returned home at 8:30 a.m.
WTHR reported that three hours before Blackburn was found, a nearby house was burglarized and electronics and other valuables were taken. Police said it’s not yet clear if that break-in is connected to the shooting.
Davey Blackburn was a youth pastor at NewSpring in Anderson for four years before moving to Indianapolis to start Resonate Church in January 2012. He is a graduate of Southern Wesleyan University in Central, where he played baseball.
