The Sanctuary is a diverse group of people who share in our passion for God, for His Kingdom, and for His people. When we say that we’re a diverse congregation, we mean it. Our members are white and black, gay and straight, single and married, young and–well, not quite as young. We’re held together by a strong bond of love that cannot be broken.
In a day and age that many churches split over divergent goals, theological beliefs, and sometimes personality conflicts, The Sanctuary was founded as a merger between two small congregations—New Revelation Christian Church, pastored by Romell Weekly, and Rainbow Covenant Christian Ministries, pastored by Lynn Matejka. We held our first service as The Sanctuary on Sunday, January 1, 2012.
The Sanctuary is a congregation committed to social justice—the equality and affirmation of all people, regardless of race, sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity, and providing support to the marginalized in our society, especially the poor and needy, and members of the LGBT community.
