FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

In Response To Gay Bullying and Gay Teen Suicide Good Shepherd Church Pasadena Launches Comprehensive Outreach to LGBTQ Community in Pasadena CA. Pasadena, CA, June 28, 2011 - In response to last year’s rash of gay teen suicides, Good Shepherd Church Pasadena launches an aggressive comprehensive outreach to the LGBTQ Community in Pasadena CA the San Gabriel Valley. Good Shepherd Church Pasadena and its openly gay Pastor Rev. Rick Eisenlord have launched a 3 prong effort to provide services and programs to an underserved LGBTQ population in Pasadena and the San Gabriel Valley. This effort includes (1) the establishment of a LGBTQ Scholarship Fund to enable high school students to continue their education beyond high school, whether it is a trade school, 2 or 4 year college; (2) the establishment of the first gay and lesbian Center in the San Gabriel Valley, providing much needed services to the LGBTQ Community; and (3) observance of World AIDS Day on Dec. 1, 2011 with a mass choir and the largest exhibition of AIDS Memorial Quilts in Southern California. Pastor Eisenlord commented, “It is one thing for a church to say it is ʻwelcomingʼ to the LGBTQ Community, but it is an entirely different matter to have that same church go beyond the confines of its sanctuary and proactively participate in LGBTQ activities. That is precisely where Good Shepherd Church Pasadena is different from other churches: we are aggressive in our outreach to the LGBTQ Community. We donʼt wait for someone to walk in the front door of the church to show them Godʼs grace, love and acceptance. We are out there proactively engaging the LGBTQ Community on a variety of important and crucial levels.” For further information, you can go to www.GoodShepherdPasadena.com or email rickeisenlord@mac.com or call Pastor Eisenlord at 213-631-0373.
