After the unidentified member threw the first punch, the male member sitting next to him immediately engaged him in a punching match.
Bishop Kevin Adams, the pastor, attempted to stop the church members from fighting, but they persisted, as he was heard saying, “Stop it, Marcus.” Come on, Marcus.”
However, after the fight, the pastor revealed that the man in the white t-shirt had recently completed rehab and had gone straight for the youth pastor, who was sitting in the front row.
He went on to say that because he didn’t know where he was, the man might have relapsed.
The cleric revealed that after they were able to calm him down, he broke down in tears, adding that the man stated that he is returning to rehab and that the church is fully supportive of his decision.
