Jimmy Creech is a pioneer and leader in the fight for marriage equality and social justice. Ordained an elder in The United Methodist Church in 1970, he served as a pastor until 1999 when a jury declared Creech guilty of “disobedience to the Order and Discipline of The United Methodist Church” and withdrew his credentials of ordination. Charges had been brought against him because he celebrated the holy union of two men in Chapel Hill, N.C.. He is co-founder of Faith in America and the author of Adam's Gift: A Memoir of a Pastor's Calling to Defy The Church's Persecution of Lesbians and Gays. Thank you, Jimmy, for your steady witness and work for justice for all persons!
