“I said, ‘Lord, if you want to see a church started, a church that has a special outreach for the gay and lesbian community but it’s doors opened to everybody, you just let me know.’” Troy D Perry
Troy Perry was a Pentecostal minister who was forced to leave his church and ministry because he was a gay man. On October 6th, 1968, he started a new church, Metropolitan Community Church, and it celebrated gay and lesbian lives and the sacredness of same-gender love. His church became a network of churches and then a global movement/Fellowship/denomination. Today, Metropolitan Community Churches champion gay and lesbian rights, transgender awareness, heterosexuals who love LBGT people, women’s rights, and ecumenical dialogue. MCC is a vocal opponent of systemic and institutionalized racism, of child abuse, of genocide and xenophobia. MCC welcomes the pious and the skeptical, the evangelical, the charismatic, the Progressive Christian, the New Thought practitioner, the interfaith couple, and seekers of every variety. The gay affirming church that welcomes everyone changed the world, and still offers a powerful witness today.
Thank you, God, for Troy Perry and for MCC. Amen.
