Publishing an Email Sent to Lead Pastor Andrew Smith of The Bridge Fresno Regarding Bryan Loritts Speaking on July 8, 2018

The Wondering Eagle reached out to Lead Pastor Andrew Smith to discuss the Fellowship Memphis scandal and Bryan Loritts. This post is the email I sent to the Lead Pastor of The Bridge Fresno. This email was ignored by The Bridge Fresno. So apparently Andrew Smith is okay with putting someone in the pulpit who covers up video voyeurism and the manufacture of child pornography inside a church.

In that wonderful day you will sing: “Thank the Lord! Praise his name!
Tell the nations what he has done. Let them know how mighty he is!

On Tuesday May 1, 2018 I sent an email to the lead pastor of The Bridge Fresno, Andrew Smith. I wanted to see if we could discuss Bryan Loritts and the Fellowship Memphis scandal and what was handed off to Downtown Church. If you want to read how Bryan Loritts covered up the voyeurism scandal and mishandled a situation where child pornography was made inside a church you can do so in, “Exploring the Role that Bryan and Crawford Loritts Played in Covering up Rick Trotter’s Voyeurism at Fellowship Memphis. Plus How Rick Trotter Got Off Easy Because of the Loritts Family Behavior.” 

I was hoping that Andrew and I could discuss the Fellowship Memphis situation, Likewise I hoped that we could have a good, honest discussion. At the time I was thinking that Andrew would care to know this information and that he would want to do the right thing. For those who are reading this from The Bridge Fresno and those thinking of attending this church. Let me go on the record of saying that the email I sent below was ignored. So apparently the lead pastor of The Bridge Fresno is okay with putting people in his pulpit who cover up voyeurism and child pornography. Those kind of individuals are good teachers. For me that is disappointing. 


Good morning from Washington, D.C. I hope you are doing well back there in Fresno. I actually miss my home town quite a bit in many ways.

Can we have a discussion on Bryan Loritts? Would you be willing to talk and discuss the situation at Fellowship Memphis. If you don’t know the full story I can tell it to you and I would be happy to discuss it. I speak with people frequently, I spent last night speaking to someone in another EFCA church about a situation I am writing about. But if you want to discuss the matter I would be happy to.

Please take care,

Very Respectfully,

David Bonner
