Progressive Evangelical Pastor Says He Shouldn’t Have Imposed His Pro-LGBT Announcement on Church

A progressive evangelical pastor whose 2015 pro-gay marriage announcement led to a steep decline in his church’s membership now says that he believes he should have given his church more input on the announcement than he did.

Pastor Stan Mitchell, founder and head of the Nashville area-based GracePointe Church, garnered national headlines in early 2015 when he said that his church would support and recognize gay marriages.

Since the announcement, GracePointe has seen a steep decline in worship attendance, membership and financial giving.

Soon after his announcement, GracePointe saw a sharp decline in attendance and financial giving. At its peak, GracePointe had a regular worship attendance of 800-1,000, which dropped to below 500 two weeks after the pro-LGBT announcement.
