Danny Cortez was the founding pastor of New Heart, a church that was dismissed from the Southern Baptist Convention for becoming an inclusive space for LGBTQ+ people. After 25 years of pastoring, he founded Estuary Space (estuaryspace.org), a non-profit that helps people and churches navigate through the complexities of faith and sexuality. He serves as a board member of Q Christian Fellowship (formerly known as The Gay Christian Network). He helped establish The Union of Affirming Christians, a gathering of faith leaders addressing public policy. He’s been active with NQAPIA to help API families towards acceptance of their queer family members. He also co-founded My Refuge House, a non-profit that restores survivors of commercial sexual exploitation (CSE) and abuse. He serves regularly as a hospice chaplain. He earned his M.Div. at Talbot Theological Seminary, La Mirada, CA and is a graduate of Arrow Leadership, BC, Canada. He lives in the Los Angeles area with his wife Abby and their 4 children. Danny was Denise and CJ Maclean’s pastor before they joined Church of the Foothills.
Has received suggestions and made some modifications to the slides used on Sundays during worship. However, to support ecological sustainability, paper bulletins will not be printed. Cabinet appreciates everyone’s willingness to support these efforts. Feedback is welcomed
Dr. Kovacs will be addressing her book: – “Retrieving Soul from the Pathology of Western Culture”
To save paper, energy, funds, help the environment, and to take advantage of our new audio-visual system, bulletins will not printed in February.
This is an experiment to see if we can make do without a weekly printed bulletin. We appreciate our church’s willingness to try new things, and offer good feedback.
