Updates from the Chair: Welcome to our Newly Ordained Clergy and Other Updates

Hi Friends!

Hope you all are having a great summer and staying cool! 

Updates to the website are still moving forward, and it’s really looking great. I think folks will be really happy with the new design once it’s out. We’re also working on making a member’s area, and putting all of our forms online. I’d like to thank Rev. Alain, Rev. Marie, and Rev. John Propper for doing a lot of hard work to make this possible! I’m hoping we can do some of the roll out by the end of August, beginning of September, with full roll out to happen in November. 

Marie, our Ordination Chair, is still asking for all previously ordained ProgCA Clergy to please email her (rev.mbatel@gmail.com) with their credentials so we can update our files. 

In other ordination news, I’d like to congratulate our newest group of ordinands who were approved by the Leadership Council at our July meeting:

  • Ahmondra McClendon 
  • Mark Slater
  • Jonny Diane Thompson 
  • Anna Golladay

Welcome the ProgCA family! 

Rob, our Member-at-Large, has been working on a revision of our online Covenant (which governs conduct on our Facebook groups). We hope to have that out to you soon.

As we move into the waning part of the year, I’d like to thank all of you who make the Progressive Christian Alliance possible. I see a lot of the work for love, inclusion, and justice that you all do, and I am so proud of you all! You are fulfilling your calls in the best ways possible, and it is amazing to see the gifts you bring to the table! 

We have many tough battles to fight right now, but I believe that we are doing what Jesus commanded us to do, and that is radical all by itself!

May your work be blessed, and may we always strive for more love, compassion, justice, and inclusion!

In the many names of Spirit, 

Rev. Gina

  1. Thank you to all that guided me on my journey to PCA. Jeff Marsh for the support et encouragement all the way. Rev. Marie for all the kind, positive feedback as I traveled (et still day) forward. To PCA in general where I finally have a church family et home that not only allows me yet encourages me to walk fully et openly on my earthside path, journey and purpose each day.

    Blessed be et Amen to all as I thank you Rev. Gina for the welcome today! It was a delight to wake up to on another beautiful day!
    Walking in my Jesus walk each day with ‘family’ surrounding me is truly a gift from the Universe!
