Elevated Faith, the megachurch that is based in Texas, has the distinction of being the only church that has a full-time pastor who is a gay man.
It has the lowest average attendance, according to an Associated Press analysis.
Its founder and pastor, Mike, is gay.
The congregation is home to many who identify as gay.
They’re in the midst of a difficult time.
Michele McPherson, the church’s president, told me the church is “very proud of being one of the most uplifting places for gay people in the world.”
In the past decade, the number of LGBT congregations has tripled, according the Williams Institute at UCLA.
McPhersons church has had a very good year, McPhersons spokeswoman said.
It was the first time in more than 20 years that the congregation has made a national list of the best congregations.
The church’s mission is to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to those who are in need and help them find a place to live out their faith.
But it also has a gay agenda, which includes “supporting and celebrating the gay and lesbian community,” according to its website.
The church’s website also lists LGBT “activities and ministries.”
The church has a policy that forbids any member from discussing or discussing homosexuality.
That’s a violation of the First Amendment, McPs church’s pastor said.
The church has said it does not discriminate based on sexual orientation.
The website also says it supports and promotes the rights of people of all sexual orientations.
McPherss church’s policy is the latest in a string of anti-LGBT policies at megachurches across the country.
In April, a Texas megachamber said it would ban any pastor from preaching the gospel if he or she is gay, and the National Association of Evangelicals said it was banning pastors from being openly gay.
In March, the Southern Baptist Convention revoked its endorsement of the United Church of Christ after it voted to allow a church to hold its convention in a hotel with no room service and no toilet facilities.
And in December, the National Organization for Marriage said it had revoked its support for the United Methodist Church after a U.S. pastor said that marriage equality was a sin.
The latest backlash comes amid a rise in hate crimes against LGBT people and religious minorities.
Last month, a man in Texas was arrested for allegedly firing a gun at a church member.
And a church in Oklahoma was sued by a lesbian couple after their wedding reception was marred by hate speech.
In June, the state’s highest court ruled that the state can no longer prosecute a lesbian woman who fired a gun into the air and was struck by the bullet.
The case is pending before the U.K. Supreme Court.
