Cathedral of Hope acquires Believe Out Loud

41

The Cathedral of Hope, one of the largest LGBTQ churches in the world, announced this week that it had acquired Believe Out Loud.

Started in 2007 as the Religious Voices Project, the original mission of Believe Out Loud was to determine where mainline Protestant clergy stand on gay and lesbian equality and assess methods to move more clergy toward LGBTQ acceptance. Believe Out Loud has since expanded its campaign from reaching exclusively mainline Protestant clergy to reaching Christians of all kinds, regardless of denomination, affiliation, or role.

It currently organization provides access to affirming worship services and livestreams, LGBT and faith-related events, connections to justice and inclusion organizations, mental health resources, and original content.

Cathedral of Hope is a congregation of the United Church of Christ (UCC) based in Dallas, Texas. It has a primary outreach to lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender people. 

“In the face of constant efforts to squeeze people who are different out of public space, it is critical to remain grounded in the deep faith that all people are worthy of God’s love,” said Rev. Dr. Neil G. Thomas, Senior Pastor of Cathedral of Hope, in a press release. “We are excited to partner with Believe Out Loud to spread that message and be an affirming space for all people of faith and our allies.”
