know that the "institutional church" has caused much pain to many
within the LGBT community. I get it. While I cannot undo years of abuse,
I CAN change what happens NOW. All I ask is that you give me a chance.

regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation or sexual identity.

Pastor Rick & Good Shepherd Church Featured On The Cover of Pasadena Weekly! We are delighted that the Pasadena Weekly has given special coverage to Good Shepherd Church and the issue of gay teen suicides.
From the article: "Virginia Uribe, executive director of Friends of Project 10, an organization that works mostly with gay and lesbian students in Los Angeles schools, agrees with Eisenlord that much depends on the individual congregations. She wholeheartedly supports what Good Shepherd is trying to do.
"Good Shepherd is doing what every church should be doing: opening up their church to everyone," she said."
