An armed robbery occurred at a Brooklyn church on Sunday when Bishop Lamor Miller Whitehead was delivering sermon via a livestream.
In a video which has gone viral, the cleric immediately went flat on the floor when the robbers said to be 3 stormed his East Flatbush church, Leaders of Tomorrow (Brooklyn campus).
Just before the brazen attack, Lamar asked, “How many of you have lost your faith because you saw somebody else die with what you were about to go through?”
One of the assailants dipped his hands into his pockets and took out wads of dollar bills and the clergyman’s gold ring.
Surprisingly, a man sitting in the back and on the pulpit never acted scared neither did he move from the spot he sat until the robbers left.
Another man went to search the preacher’s pockets as though he was looking for something. But he left with nothing shortly after the thorough search.
Brooklyn Police reports that the thieves carted away $400,000 worth of jewelry.

Who is Lamor Miller Whitehead?
The Leaders of Tomorrow International Churches define Whitehead as a “dynamic preacher, motivational speaker, social activist, community leader,” and an “entrepreneur.”
He was born in Brooklyn, New York, and was raised by his mother after his father, Arthur Miller, a politician and a community activist, was murdered.
The website claims that he was strangled by 16 officers which resulted in his “untimely and unjust death.” Whitehead was only six months old at the time.
The website further claims that his preaching and teachings “focuses on empowering believers spiritually, developing them educationally, exposing them culturally, activating them politically and strengthening them economically.”
