Gay Pastor Opens Church After ‘No Love’ From Traditional Church!
Pastor Curt Thomas has opened his own church after finding there was “no love” for him in traditional worship settings. His former church forced him out when they found out he was gay and Thomas decided it was to time to start his own ministry. In 2008, the pastor who is originally from Pasadena returned to Los Angeles having served in three other churches as youth pastor.
Before setting out to open the church known as The Renewed Church of Los Angeles, Thomas was mentored by many gifted men of God. One man in particular was Bishop Oliver Clyde Allen III; it was under his tutelage that Thomas received the courage to develop his own church.Bishop Allen is the founder and senior pastor of Vision Church of Atlanta where he serves with his partner, First Gentleman Rashad Burgess (First G).
He is also the presiding bishop of the United Progressive Pentecostal Church Fellowship, which consists of leaders and ministries all joined to the same vision. It is under this covering where Renewed Church of Los Angeles abides.
