Todd Fisher: Heaven or Hell—Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds

Last week, tragic news—fit for the silver screen—hit the entertainment industry.

On December 23, Carrie Fisher of Star Wars fame, suffered a severe heart attack.

She was rushed to the hospital and appeared stable on Christmas Day. Then suddenly, two days later, Carrie passed away.

In another sudden shock, Carrie Fisher’s mother Debbie Reynolds had a stroke, and entered the hospital.

She would die the day after her daughter.

In the midst of this overwhelming heartache, Todd Fisher, Debbie’s son and Carrie’s brother, has found a way to make sense of the tragedy.

He is a pastor!

About his mother, Pastor Todd shared: “She was under a lot of stress.” The death of her daughter pushed her over the edge.

As for Todd, his path toward faith in Christ and ministry was a long one, influenced indirectly by the movie industry.

Fisher’s father was Jewish, and his mother was a Presbyterian (she used to attend the Beverly Hills Presbyterian Church). He learned about both religions, but found them very boring.

But when her sister starred as Princess Leia in Star Wars, he started reading the Bible, and came to believe in Jesus. Fisher told a People’s Magazine reporter: “I was satisfied knowing that God is in control. I felt a security and a peace I had never known before.”

He would later hear the call to become a minister.

His first church was in his mother Debbie Reynolds’ studio. He then led a church called “The Hiding Place” with a congregation that grew to 1,000 members. In the early 1980’s, he performed did comedic skits on the Trinity Broadcasting Network to share the Good News.

Even in the midst of Hollywood glitz, God can use the most unlikely of people to share the Gospel and preach the Word!

Obviously, Carrie and Debbie heard the Gospel. There is only one way to heaven … through belief in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ:

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)

Please keep the Fisher family in your prayers.

  1. My prayer is that both Carrie and Debbie made Christ Lord of their lives. I heard him on 20/20 giving homage to his sister and mother. Praise God for his salvation and ministry!

  2. I’m with Dion on this. Praise the God of Heaven. See what a difference one godly person makes to a family just utterly surrounded by secularism in the state of California. I praise His holy name. And I’m looking to seeing how the LORD plans to use Pastor Todd Fisher down the stretch. I have Romans 8:28 and Isaiah 65:24 on my mind right now. Pastor Fisher will rally behind his faith. Jesus has got his mother Ms. Reynolds and his sister Carrie. The Trinity Broadcasting Network or Rev. Billy Graham’s effort with the Christian Post or with ArcaMax.com in the columns the 98-year-old still writes could give a glimpse of some honest options that Pastor Fisher could pursue. God dearly loves all of his servants…and the LORD will –I’m sure–find just the right role for Todd Fisher to perform. — “Therefore said he unto them, The harvest is truly great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.” —-Luke 10:2.

    I’ll continue praying for the Fisher family. God bless them.

  3. Praise God and I am happy to know that there is faith in the Fisher/Reynolds family. Todd may you and yours be comforted knowing who our savior and Lord is.and continue to spread the gospel. Prayers are with you guys.

  4. I am in full agreement with Dion Richardson. I do hope and pray that Carrie and Debbie made Jesus their Lord and Savior. But we really have no idea. That is between them and God Almighty. One day as I close my story on this side of eternity and open my eyes in heaven, I will know for sure. May all who read this come to a saving knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for He is the only way to our Heavenly Father.

  5. I was privileged to be a Facebook friend of Debbie along with zillions of others but, as a believer in Christ, sensed that something special got through. I wrote that I had come out of the Nazarene church & college an had fun telling what my favorite Debbie Reynolds movies were, especially The Rat Race & Singing In The Rain. A fan forever, Gary Jones
