New Birth Missionary Baptist Church Gets A New Bishop

(via New Birth Baptist Church)

Not too long ago, Bishop Eddie Long passed away from “an aggressive form of cancer”.  The 63-year-old pastor grew New Birth into a megachurch, and it became the church home to many people in Lithonia and surrounding areas.

His death shocked many, and after his passing, a lot of people had their opinions on the controversy that followed him in his personal life. However, his soul is now at rest and apparently the church must go on.

New Birth’s new Senior Pastor will be Bishop Stephen A. Davis. He is the President and Senior Pastor of New Birth Birmingham in Alabama and according to reports, he will “continue to lead New Birth Birmingham in addition to the extended campus of New Birth Tuscaloosa”.

It will be interesting to see how he will be received by the New Birth community in Lithonia.
