According to an article on Gospel News Room, Bishop Noel Jones was recently hospitalized for heart issues. The article states that this past Sunday Jones addressed his congregation about his health, finances and perceptions stemming from the Preachers of L.A. reality show. It also says that he appeared weak and was complaining of back problems. Please say a prayer for the health of Bishop Jones.
According to Bishop Jones, his doctors advised him not to return to the pulpit until at least this coming Wednesday, but pressing church matters forced the ailing pastor to return to the church for a heartfelt talk with his congregation, even telling the media staff to turn off the LIVE streaming while he shared his concerns.
Bishop Jones, who appeared to be weak and complaining of back problems, started his conversation by enlightening the congregation about the differences between institutional churches verses personality driven churches and the problems that can arise when you have a pastor away for a short time (it was a financial conversation). While addressing the audience, Bishop Jones also took time to talk about various media reports and critics of Oxygen’s new reality series, The Preachers of LA, to which he is featured. Source
