There’s more bad news for Bishop Eddie Long. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, New Birth Christian Academy is closing its doors.
Officials at New Birth Christian Academy, which enrolls students in kindergarten through the 12th grade, say the school has been struggling financially for years; and won’t reopen after Christmas holidays.
Even though the academy is affiliated with New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia and the embattled Bishop Eddie Long, school officials told a local TV station that the decision to close is not related to the allegations brought against Bishop Long.
This is another setback for Bishop Eddie Long, on the heels of Vanessa Long filing for divorce and Long taking a sabbatical to attend to family matters.
