Church remembers pastor who died after delivering sermon

Pastor Jerome McNeil recently gave a sermon that one parishioner described as “exhilarating.” CBS DFW reports the pastor was walking up and down the aisle as he does regularly and after his sermon, he simply fell. McNeil was a pastor in the church known as the Temple of Faith, for 21 years. The original church still sits behind the temple and was the center of the African-American community called White Rock Creek for 150 years. McNeil was the first black administrator for a Dallas County agency, second in command for the Juvenile Department in 1981.

 It was an exhilarating Sunday service, one congregant recollected.  Rev. Jerome McNeil, Senior Pastor of Christian Chapel CME Church, had the rhythm in his tone, and the spirit in his message, during a morning sermon.

“He walked down the aisle, like he always does”, church member Cherry Bullard said.

But that walk would be the final steps of Rev. McNeil’s life.  The veteran pastor collapsed and died in front of crowded sanctuary of churchgoers.
