BREAKING NEWS: Pastor David Stephens is the embattled leader of the Greater Bellevue Baptist Church in Macon, GA. The church has been divided for several years over his leadership. On multiple occasions, church leaders have sought his resignation or termination, to no avail.
Tonight’s (Monday’s) meeting had been called with the purpose of deciding if the members wanted the pastor to remain. The divisions are so incredibly deep that bedlam broke out. Fist fights, profanity and chaos led to local police being called to the church campus. The meeting was suspended by law enforcement.
Raw video footage of events leading up to the fight is linked here.
