Senior Pastor, City of Refuge United Church of Christ
Rev. Dr. Yvette A. Flunder is an unapologetic disciple and proponent of the radically inclusive love of Jesus Christ. A third-generation preacher with roots in the Church of God in Christ, Bishop Flunder, Senior Pastor of the City of Refuge United Church of Christ and ordained in both the United Church in Christ and the Metropolitan Community Churches, has successfully united the message of the gospel with social justice ministry and action for over 30 years.
Recently, some African American pastors who came to “heckle” me changed their minds and instead asked me what they could do to move the conversation about moral equality for LGBT people in the Black church forward.
