302: What Happens When An Evangelical Megachurch Becomes LGBTQ+ Inclusive with Ryan Meeks

Ryan Meeks is the founding pastor of EastLake Community Church outside of Seattle, Washington. A couple of years ago, EastLake became one of the first evangelical megachurches in America to support full inclusion and affirmation of LGBTQ+ people. In the process, Ryan also transitioned out of evangelicalism.  The fallout was huge but still hundreds stayed and Ryan shares his story with Bart.
