Pastor O Jermaine Simmons
Pastor O. Jermaine Simmons is the Senior Pastor of Jacob Chapel in Tallahassee, Florida who was caught sleeping with another man's wife.
According to NY Daily News, the pastor was caught having s*x with one of his church members in her daughter’s bed by her husband.
However, the pastor bailed on his lover by running out of the house butt n*ked for fear of his life.
The police report states Ms. Claynisha Monette Stephens the wife who committed adultery with the pastor admitted that the two have been engaged in a relationship for a few years and that the pastor was at her home because they were allegedly going to start a business together. They ended up in her daughter’s bed, and while they were engaged in sexual activity, the school was calling trying to get in touch with her to pick her son up. Eventually, they contacted the father, and when he arrived home with their son, he saw both Claynisha and O. Jermaine Simmons in their daughter’s bed.
NY News reports that the husband then went searching for his gun, and that’s when O. Jermaine Simmons bailed out of the house and hid in a nearby yard behind a privacy fence butt n*ked.
Pastor O. Jermaine Simmons was back preaching on Sunday where he tendered an apology before his congregation. According to him, the Lord put him in this position as a lesson for the congregation.
According to the church’s website, Simmons is the ninth pastor of the more than 80-year-old Jacob Chapel and he is also a fourth generation pastor and former public school teacher.
Since his arrival at the church in 2005, more than “4,000 souls have been added to the Body of Christ and the local church.”
“Under Pastor Simmons’ leadership, Jacob Chapel has literally fed the hungry, clothed the naked, ministered to those in prisons, and built houses for those without shelter. It is the message of the Cross, the death, the burial, and the resurrection of Christ from the grave which continues to fuel the fire that burns within this passionate preacher and teacher,” the church said.
In his new book "I Need a Man" published in 2016, Simmons offers a fresh, down-to-Earth perspective on the issues of godly manhood, mentoring, and identity.
