A memorial service is planned for a newly married Detroit-area youth minister who was killed in a traffic accident as he and his wife were en route to their honeymoon in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

The service for 21-year-old Jordan Costa is Saturday at Connection Church in Canton Township, Mich.

Watch: Michigan pastor dies 1 day after wedding

Costa was pronounced dead at the scene of Sunday's rollover crash in eastern Ohio's Tuscarawas County. Twenty-one-year-old Heather Favazza-Costa suffered minor injuries.

The Costas were married last Saturday at Connection Church, where both were involved in the youth ministry and she was a lifelong member.

Costa, who originally is from the Boston area, came to Michigan about 18 months ago to work in the church.
