BRIDGEPORT – A congregation angrily confronts its long-time pastor about his alleged infidelity during Sunday’s service and in the midst of this harangue the pastor drops dead.
That’s apparently what happened Sunday at the Miracle Faith World Outreach Church, according to members of the congregations and police sources.
Bobby Davis, pastor of the Harriet Street Church since its founding in 1967, was pronounced dead at Bridgeport Hospital. According to the Office of the State Medical Examiner his cause of death is pending further study.
Police Spokesman William Kaempffer would only confirm that a detective has been assigned to the case. “The circumstances are under investigation,” he said.
Davis found the church with his wife Christine Davis. The couple, of Monroe, celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary last June.
There was no answer at the church.
