Charlotte Transgender Minister To Be Ordained Sunday!
Reader after 20 years in ministry, New Life Metropolitan Community Church Pastor Dawn Flynn will be ordained Sunday. Pastor Flynn was born a man and she transitioned to a woman in 2009. As a pastor in the United Methodist Church, she was defrocked after the congregation saw her dressed as a woman. She later found a new home in Charlotte as a pastor at New Life. A bishop in the United American Catholic Church will do the ceremony. "My new call to ministry now that I’ve transitioned is to reach out the the transgender community and let them know that God loves them, even though the traditional church says that God doesn't love them, but God loves them." Pastor Dawn is only one of three transgender pastors in North Carolina.
