Rev. Hosea Stubblefield appeared to be a young leader who could guide the next generation at Salem Missionary Baptist Church in Houston. The 32-year-old seemed to have a bright future in the ministry. However, all of that changed when the actions he took in the dark came to light.

According to Fox 26, Stubblefield had an affinity for making sex tapes. Stubblefield’s sex tapes became known after a woman he allegedly dated revealed their relationship on a blog post by Melanted Conversations. The woman, known as B. Coll, wrote about her sexual relationships with Stubblefield. The two met when they were teens and lost contact before reconnecting 15 years later on a dating app.

B. Coll posted several clips of a sex tape that she discovered on Stubblefield’s computer. She recorded the sex videos. B. Coll eventually decided to end their relationship in September 2016 after he requested that she make a sex video with him. In several screenshots from alleged text messages between the two, Stubblefield pressured B. Coll to have sex on video.

But B. Coll refused to make a sex tape and told him that she would never do so until he decided to propose marriage. Stubblefield became dismissive and told B. Coll that they should just be friends. Heartbroken, B. Coll finally realized that Stubblefield was using her for sex.

Once the blog post went live, members of the congregation questioned Stubblefield, who is recently divorced. Several members called for him to step down as pastor. One of the individuals who called for Stubblefield to step down included head deacon Craig Davis. Stubblefield once dated Davis’ daughter.

Stubblefield decided to admit his transgressions and revealed that he has recorded between 5 to 10 sex tapes over the past 10 years. He said that he did not make a sex tape during his tenure as pastor at Salem over the past year. But B. Coll said that she saw more than 10 sex videos while they were together. Stubblefield has served as a preacher for a decade.

Stubblefield has asked his congregation for forgiveness and wants to remain as the church leader at Salem Missionary. But Stubblefield should step down, take the time to work on himself and address what could be a sex addiction.

It’s likely that controversy inside the church will continue if Stubblefield remains as pastor.

  • Dilly Dab

    What bullsh*t. So what the Pastor has aezual proclivities that are not openly shared by some of his congregation. At least it ain’t some perversion that we often see among these religious types.

  • hidaya

    Classless, tacky, and not in alignment with being a Pastor. At the end of the day, Pastors seem to be just as needy and greedy as the congregants!

    • dick green

      Pastor done got da AIDS!

    • Aretha A. Jordan

      That man is human. The sex was consensual, it wasn’t like he was having multiple partners!

      We all have sinned or sinning!

      We all have flaws!

  • Mike Gee

    ok the article was informational until th writer decided to interject his opi nion…what happened to real unbiased reporting? Every dang reporter has to try and gt everyone to side with them…just report the news idiot, we dont care about your opinions on what he should do….smdh.

  • dick green

    He is a real jigaboo johhny.

  • Aretha A. Jordan

    He’s human and she was a woman scorned. He shouldn’t have to step down because of it. Churches gives deacons too much power in the church and they’re the main ones of full sin.

    Church (the building) is full of sinners joined together to serve a prefect God!

  • Sharhonda Blue Streets

    He should definitely step himself down!!! Of course we all fall short and make mistakes, but his actions appear to be an intentional ongoing pattern… He needs to take some time and get himself together for real!!

  • xenonman

    He’s just following the example of Martin Luther King, Jr.

  • Lynn Hooker

    Um seriously folks? You have no clue what a man of God SHOULD be. Not sure what Bible you or this man is reading but sexual immorality-big no no. If this man cant live how the Bible says he should-then he has no right to be in that pulpit. Remember Jesus died to free us FROM sin not the freedom TO sin.
