DEFROCKED: Still Faithful

Thursday, May 1, 2014 at 5:00pm to 8:30pm

First Church in Oberlin, Sanctuary First Church In Oberlin, 106 N Main St, Oberlin, OH 44074

Frank Schaefer, a former United Methodist Pastor from Lebanon, Pennsylvania, whose clergy credentials were revoked for performing the same-sex wedding of his son, will be the featured speaker at an event designed to highlight what it means to be faithful in ministry in the midst of controversy over LGBTQ issues.

Schaefer will be joined by panelists who will engage in conversation on the topic. Panelists include Bishop Mark Hollingsworth of the Episcopal Diocese of Ohio; Dr. Yvonne Zimmerman, associate professor of Christian Ethics at the Methodist Theological School in Ohio; and Cornelius Graves IV, a recent Oberlin College graduate and prospective seminary student.

Following the keynote event, dinner and break-out conversations will take place at various locations on campus and in area churches.

This event is sponsored by the Oberlin College Office of Religious and Spiritual Life with support from Oberlin College Multicultural Resource Center, First United Methodist Church of Oberlin, First Church in Oberlin (UCC), and Christ Episcopal Church of Oberlin.
