DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – It was an exhilarating Sunday service, one congregant recollected.  Rev. Jerome McNeil, Senior Pastor of Christian Chapel CME Church, had the rhythm in his tone, and the spirit in his message, during a morning sermon.

“He walked down the aisle, like he always does”, church member Cherry Bullard said.

But that walk would be the final steps of Rev. McNeil’s life.  The veteran pastor collapsed and died in front of crowded sanctuary of churchgoers.

“All of a sudden I heard a thud and I didnt know what it was. I looked around, and he was gone,” Bullard said from her church office desk on Tuesday. “It hurts to even think about it, but he’s in a better place.”

McNeil, the leader of the church known as the Temple of Faith, was a 21-year pastor for the church. Christian Chapel has a 150 year history in Dallas, but the church’s history is longer and richer.
