For this Christian pastor, the Bible is a framework, not a rule book.
Ryan Meeks was brought up as an evangelical Christian. He was taught that homosexuality is a cardinal sin.
“When it came to the conversation about the LGBT community, I always felt awkward about it and I didn’t want to bring it up,” he explains.
A decade or so later, Ryan founded the mega-successful EastLake Community Church. Within a matter of years, attendance grew to the thousands thanks to Ryan’s captivating and approachable preaching.
