A 2021 plane crash that killed seven leaders of Remnant Fellowship, a Nashville-area megachurch, was due to pilot error, a report from the National Transportation Safety Board found.

Nearly two years after the plane went down in Middle Tennessee, the agency determined the pilot, Joe Lara, became disoriented while maneuvering shortly after taking off in Smyrna before crashing in Percy Priest Lake.

Smyrna, a town in Rutherford County, is about 23 miles southeast of downtown Nashville. Remnant Fellowship is located in the Music City southern suburb of Brentwood.

Lara and his wife, Gwen Shamblin Lara, the founder of Remnant Fellowship and a popular Christian diet program, died in the May 29, 2021 crash.

Five other Remnant leaders also died: Jennifer J. Martin, David L. Martin, Jessica Walters, Jonathan Walters and Brandon Hannah, all of Brentwood.
