Bishop Eddie Long, the controversial leader of one of the nation’s largest megachurches, has died, according to the suburban Atlanta church he presided over. He was 63.

Long died after a battle with an aggressive form of cancer, according to a statement by the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church.

Long is survived by his wife, four children, and three grandchildren, the church said.

Please pray for God’s peace upon his family and his church congregation.
