Founded in 1968 by Rev. Troy Perry, The Metropolitan Church (MCC) combined deeply-rooted religious beliefs and practices (particularly from the Pentecostal, Baptist and Roman Catholic faiths) with the emerging gay liberation movement to develop innovative, affirming, and eros-positive theologies. In this Lavender Lunch Jim Mitulski will speak about the MCC as a living, dynamic, and LGBTQ-affirming denomination.
About the Speaker: Rev. Elder Jim Mitulski (PSR MDiv 1990), ordained in 1983 for the MCC, is one of the longest continuing MCC clergy still engaged in pastoral ministry. A graduate of Columbia University (BA), PSR (MDiv), and Starr King School for the Ministry (Doctor of Sacred Theology), Jim was a Merrill Fellow at Harvard Divinity School. He has served at MCC New York, MCC San Francisco, Golden Gate MCC, Guerneville MCC, City of Angels MCC, New Spirit Church at PSR, Cathedral of Hope UCC in Dallas, MCC of the Rockies, Needham Congregational Church (UCC), and now at Island United Church in Foster City, California.
