Spokesperson for Bishop Eddie Long, the Georgia Pastor embroiled in a sexual abuse scandal, says Eddie Long will not step down from ministry during tomorrow's announcement. Bishop Eddie Long will speak to his congregation tomorrow between the 8:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. services. News crews will be there, but their cameras will be turned off. The service will not stream live during the announcement as well.

Art Franklin, Bishop Eddie Long's spokesperson said that rumors circulating that Bishop Eddie Long would announce he was stepping down is nothing more than a rumor. He said that Bishop Eddie Long will remain senior pastor of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church.

At this point, it is unclear what Bishop Long will say tomorrow and with the blackout, we'll have to wait until inside sources provide us with an update.
