Alternative Ministries!

This story caught my attention because of who this young man is. Jamie “Jay” Bakker the son of PTL Club cohosts Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker. He doesn't believe in an exclusive God, only one that embraces us all for who we are, including same-gender-loving individuals. He survived a hellish journey through teenage alcoholism, reclaimed his Christian faith and has become a pastor in Atlanta. Bakker wrote about it in his autobiography, Son of a Preacher Man. Bakker’s ministry Revolution is one of several thousand alternative ministries that have emerged in the last decade, meeting in warehouses, bars, skate parks, punk clubs, private homes or other spaces, in a generational rumble to rebrand the faith outside of what we think of as church. They are a counterculture on two fronts: at odds with both their secular peers and conventional churches. Jay saids the Punk - rocker reached out to him when the Christian world rejected he and his family.


Question: 1) How can the church improve on how it treat people who are different?
