Get Out Of Here, Elder Vanessa Long Says She's ‘Shocked’ by Stephen A. Davis’ Resignation!
Sorry not buying it for one second that Elder Vanessa Long didn't know that Bishop Stephen A. Davis was about to resigning from his post as senior pastor of New Birth church. If we who are outside the New Birth Church community heard this news months ago, I'm sure she had wind of it also.
Bishop Davis stated in an article that Bishop Longs instructions were not being followed and basically, the board wanted to control him. I’m glad that he left strong and told his truth. Most would have left lying to protect the church. But lying for the church does not protect it, it hinders it’s growth and progress. ( You Can Read It Here )
Speaking to the congregation during Wednesday night services, Vanessa Long said, “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.”
Prayers for New Birth in finding its next Pastor!
