Back in March New Birth Missionary Baptist Church denied reports that the replacement for Bishop Eddie Long was resigning and that the church was in foreclosure. The replacement pastor officially submitted his resignation this week. Bishop Long’s widow confirmed the news Wednesday night telling the congregation,
“I must admit it came as a shock to me just as it did to you. I feel your pain. I feel your love. I feel your disappointment. I feel your confusion.”
Stephen A. Davis took over as senior pastor at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in January 2017.
