- Pastors are known to come up with different means to drive home a sermon or get the attention of the congregation
- Pastor Bartholomew Orr 'flew' in to give a sermon to his congregation and the act was greeted with hilarious reactions
- The United States pastor said his flying entry and sermon style is synonyms with how 'Jesus Christ's Second Coming' will be
Pastor Bartholomew Orr of the Brown Missionary Baptist Church in Southaven, Mississippi, United States became an instant social media celebrity following his grand entrance to the church.
The pastor, in a YouTube video shared by Inside Edition, flew over the congregation to deliver a sermon.
His act sure took the congregants by surprise with many finding it hilarious.
Why he arrived for the sermon that way
Pastor Bartholomew said the entrance style fits into the passage focus of the sermon, Daily Mail reports.
''The passage says to 'be patient for the Lord's coming is near' and it worked perfectly. Just as Christ's return is going to be unexpected, my flying in was unexpected.''
The cleric, during the incident which happened in 2018, admonished the church members to be watchful as 'Jesus Christ's Second Coming' would be just like he arrived the service - unexpected.
He said God orchestrated the grand arrival
Bartholomew who thought God orchestrated the whole act said the experience wasn't nerve-wracking.
He however admitted that it wasn't a comfortable feeling preaching in the harness (the equipment that held him up in the air).
