New Birth Missionary Baptist Church is expanding into the Denver area.

Darius Wise, who served as elder and chief ministry officer at the Lithonia megachurch, will serve as senior pastor at the Denver location.

Wise talked about the new church in Denver in a video posted on YouTube:

“We see a door and an opportunity opening in Denver, Colorado. And through much prayer and much consecration, we sense and believe that God is up to something special in the Denver, Colorado region and we are excited to be a part of it.”

The church also has a New Birth Charlotte location in North Carolina.

As we previously reported, New Birth’s Bishop Eddie Long recently settled out of court sexual lawsuits brought against him by four men who accused Long of coercing them into having sex by giving them gifts and taking them on trips.

Also, the Rev. Bernice King, the youngest daughter the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King, announced exclusively on our sister station MyPraiseAtl.com that she was leaving New Birth to pursue her own ministry.
