The Connecticut PostÂ reported that Bishop Bobby Davis of Miracle Faith World Outreach Church, who was also a certified marriage and family therapist, was pronounced dead at Bridgeport Hospital after the ordeal.
â€œAfter the service on Sunday the bishopâ€™s family asked us to remain in the church and the bishop confessed to us something that happened long ago,â€ Judy Stovall, an elder at the church, said. â€œHe wanted to come clean with all of us. He wanted to ask our forgiveness.â€
â€œWe were shouting, â€˜We forgive you, we love you.â€™ But the stress of all of it â€” he had a heart attack,â€ an emotional Stovall continued. â€œI held his head as he lay on the floor. â€¦ Our congregation is hurting now.â€
One source, who asked not to be identified during an interview with The Christian Post on Thursday, said the confession wasnâ€™t that clean-cut based on what they were told, and feels the situation could have been handled better.
