Pastor’s Wife & Mistress Fight During Church Service?!

Pastor Frank Ray and wife Deborah J. Ray

Church service at New Salem Missionary Baptist Church in Memphis, TN was not the same and probably will never be the same again, after a fight broke out during church service between two women and families over one woman, allegedly the Pastor's Wife and another woman, allegedly the Pastor's mistress.

New Salem members watched in awe as two women fought during their Sunday Communion service, allegedly over pastor Frank Ray's marital affairs.

Soon after the fight between the two women began, a brawl between two families sparked near the church's choir section, reports WMCTV who also reports that Beverly Milam, her nemesis Terry Bell, and Bell's daughter, Charra Lumpkin, were at the center of the altercation.

Bell and Milam revealed that the fight began over a verbal confrontation at last Wednesday's Bible study where Milam told Bell to "stop sleeping with somebody" which led to Bell getting in her face.



At the fight in church on Sunday, both women are claiming the other one started it. Bell claims Milam hit her daughter, while Milam claims Angel, Bell's friend, hit her in the face with an umbrella and that's when family 'jumped in.'

Later, officers arrived on the church scene and separated the women and others from fighting.

No one was arrested. Milam was treated at the church, for a slightly swollen and bloodshot right eye, while the other two (Bell and Lumpkin, who both suffered from scratch marks to their neck and upper chest) refused medical treatment.

    • Get that man off the pulpit! This adulterer should not be preaching the word of the Lord until he is sin free! COMPLETELY repentant and in process of repairing his marriage to his wife and leaving that other woman alone!

      • SIn free? wth are you talking about sin free. What human being is sin free? Is that what you think a Pastor should be? Are you sin free?

        • I may not be the 1st to say this but let me be as frank and honest through the word of God as I know how to be…. These preachers today should not preach anywhere if they have no self control enough to keep their members in their pants, and only have eyes for their wives!!!!! The word of God backs up everything I’m about to say.
          The reason people are giving these sorry excuse for pastors passes is because they are living the same drama filled filthy last full lives they are. The church is supposed to live a separate life from the world. It should not resemble the world at all.
          Eph. 5:3
          But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people.
          Rom. 6:12
          12Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires.
          Be blessed

    • Oh it was you doing the living. If your sous is that fragile you need to do more than change pastors. They arent responsible for your soul you are.

    • This building may have church on the outside but until they invite Christ, it’s just a building. This situation should have been dealt with LONG before this. If you can disrespect God’s house by this lifestyle and activity, there needs to be some people filled with the Holy Spirit.

  1. Well let me shut the front door cause churches today have lost sight of the real reason.The Church is now on big Club where most are there for rubba-dud .Now if Jesus would’ve appeared who saying who an for what.I attend Bedtime Baptist.every Sunday .Shout out to well Believe it or not.The Devil has followers that dwell in the house of God.so be on your guard.

  2. You know the tree by the fruit it bare..forget the manmade titles a gorilla can put on a suit and look good.He is what he is. women follow men as they follow Christ. and if you think you must fight with the one your sleeping with he’s bringing the thots in the relationship you think you have. Don’t fight the thots eventually you will have more of them to fight than VanCamp have pork n beans. When a man is please to stay you will know it he will act like it. Don’t hang around long enough to pick up something that will take you out of this world he don’t take his own life into consideration and could care less about yours ever after they have been exposed. Call it what it is and not what you want it to be.

  3. I see to a man that all the comments are from self righteous people. Yes, being a Pastor, his penalty from the Lord may be severe and the unchecked sin resulted into him being exposed, but some of you may be doing things that no one knows of and the only reason you talk in this way is because you have yet to be exposed. The Pastor falls and the first thing that comes to your mind is run to another church. This is typical of someone who places the pastor on a pedestal as opposed to viewing him as a person positioned by God. Because he had a fall doesn’t take away the anointing that God gave him. David slept with Bathsheda and had her husband killed. Did god say that he was no longer king? To the contrary. David was considered a man after God’s own heart. The scriptures say he which is spiritual, restore such a one who is taken in a fault with the spirit of meekness, lest though also be tempted. In other words, be careful with how you deal with a brother who found in a fault because that same person may be the one who you have to face if you should fall. My brothers and sisters, I pray that you think about how you speak of the Lord’s anointed. We have every right to be disappointed, but no of us have any place to speak against another brother. Instead, we ought to pray and if possible, aid them in efforts to see him back into a right relationship with Christ.

    • Oh please people look up to pastors and they are expected to lead by example. To err is human but gimme a break they could have save this drama for somewhere else besides the pulpit. Normal people address their issues every day without an audience.

    • Let me ask you-

      If this man had been gay and would you still feel the same? If so I know plenty of good LGBT people who would love to have an opportunity to share what the Lord is doing for them, in their hearts and minds..

      The pastor didn’t fall… he ran straight into that sin. Arms open and willing to humiliate his own wife, and cause another woman to sn with him. Would he have stopped if he had not been caught? How you answer that is key to how sincere he may be about redemption.

  4. The Pastors Wife is sooo beautiful. .. I will NEV3R understand these sorry tail men, no matter who they are, its so sad, And then sometimes too, Vice Versa…To be A So called man of God.. How could he have ever counciled a couple whom might’ve been in dyer straights, with perhaps in the same predicament. .. Poor Example Some men will be just what they are.. No Good

  5. My comment might not be popular, but I hope it will enlighten spiritual eyes that have been blinded by sin on display in so many churches today. The doctrine that teaches no one can live free from sin and that only God and Jesus are holy, is what produces the reproach reported in this article. May we, who profess to be Christians, consider God’s word :
    Romans 6:16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

    17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.

    18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

    19 I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.

    20 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.

    21 What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.

    22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
    In conclusion, You are not a servant of God unless your have been made free from sin. The blood of Christ is a cleanser and it works! There are many other scriptures that bring out living free from sin. That is what salvation is all about. Truly saved people will not reproach their Savior. Holy living glorifies the Lord and the fruit of the Spirit will be ours (Galatians 5:22) to live before the world. My life is a testimony to this truth.

  6. Get that man off the pulpit! This adulterer should not be preaching the word of the Lord until he is sin free! COMPLETELY repentant and in process of repairing his marriage to his wife and leaving that other woman alone!

    • Retract: No one can be sin free- I wrote that hastily. what I believe is that to be a pulpeteer- one must be able to show repentance for the sins committed.. but no one can be with out.

  7. Valorie Jenkins You know the tree by the fruit it bare..forget the manmade titles a gorilla can put on a suit and look good.He is what he is. women follow men as they follow Christ. and if you think you must fight with the one your sleeping with he’s bringing the thots in the relationship you think you have.

  8. Rev.Frank Ray…Stop long enough to ask God”Lord, I wanna know ,How far have I strayed”. humbley come before God .All parties involved you are totally and boldfully showing the entire body what you think of our creator who sees,and hears the whole issue from start to finish.sincerly renew even if it means stepping down …nothing is worth the loss of your soul. I say this in love.Amen.

  9. People need to study their bible…JESUS destroyed the church twice in the bible and said no church do HIS father will..if you take time to study for yourself..you see JESUS took people out of the church to teach them and always left the levi behind..Levi mean priest hood..

  10. Most of these so called pastors are only leaders of churches so they can commit these sins and feel powerful doing it.Lord bring back the days of Ananias and Sapphira.

  11. YAwl doing all this outrage over a pastor having an affair but havent said or did a thing to help stop police killing unarmed black people. #foodforthought

  12. This is a typical example of the devil at work. Some pastors are just “playing church”. if you have given your life to Christ, know what is right from wrong, moreover a pastor that leads his flock to do good and OBEY God, why allow this ‘Sin against God” this situation did not happen overnight, it was a process and a CONSCIOUS decision had to be made to do such a thing. sin is sin, but a lie or smaller one can be pardoned. He needs to take responsible for his actions, otherwise the CHURCH and CHRISTIANITY would continue to go downhill.

  13. The Pastor should be a shame of himself. He is a leader in his community, he is a role model. He should have never put his wife in a situation such as this one. Nor should he have jeopardize someone life by having an affair outside of his marriage.

    This could have been a tragic situation. I vote for him to be remove. No im not a remember! I have enough common sense to know pastor is not right.

    I don’t want to hear God is a forgiven God.
