Pastor Dies After Confessing Infidelity To Congregation

A Connecticut pastor’s last confession was a big one… and it may have cost him his life.

After telling the congregation at the Miracle Faith World Outreach Church that he had been unfaithful to his wife, Bishop Bobby Davis died.

“After the service on Sunday the bishop’s family asked us to remain in the church and the bishop confessed to us something that happened long ago,” church elder Judy Stovall told the Connecticut Post. “He wanted to come clean with all of us. He wanted to ask our forgiveness.”

Before he died, church members were screaming at Davis to show him their support.

“We were shouting, ‘We forgive you, we love you,’ but the stress of all of it — he had a heart attack,” Stovall said. “I held his head as he lay on the floor. Our congregation is hurting now.”

The cause of death has not been determined.

“We responded to the church to assist medical treatment,” Bridgeport Police Department spokesperson William Kaempffer told the New Haven Register. “The patient was transported to Bridgeport Hospital where he subsequently passed. A detective has been assigned the case to determine what happened. An autopsy is scheduled for (Tuesday) to determine what happened. The circumstances are under investigation.”

Davis and his wife celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary last June. He was a certified marriage and family therapist.
