Really enjoyed your episode of WTF. You seem like a great guy, got a solid head on your shoulders, and despite the fact that you and I might not see quite eye-to-eye on religion (I'm an atheist), I respect your overall position. Keep it up.
revolutionchurch revolutionchurch Said:

Thanks for that. We have days where we feel like atheists, too, so we understand. What’s important is what we can see eye-to-eye on, rather than what we cannot. We appreciate your support!

I have been a Christian for 26 years and in ministry since 2005. I have never begged or put my business out there in terms of finances. I work a full time job, am a single mom and minister the gospel of Jesus Christ and in this am able to bless others in my giving. So why don't pastors who only work a few hours a week get a part time job to make up for the difference in their churches. Why are pastors always seeking handouts?????
revolutionchurch revolutionchurch Said:

Good question, anon. If we had a pastor (or knew any, for that matter) who only worked a few hours a week, we’d ask him or her.

We just sent out our September newsletter. If you did not receive it, we’ve republished it below. If you would like to subscribe so you don’t miss out on future emails, you can do that here.

Dear Friends, 

It’s been a while since many of you have heard from me, so please allow me to reintroduce myself. My name is Paolo, and I’ve been working with Revolution Church for close to 7 years now. I’ve been helping out with our social media, maintaining our website, recording our podcasts, producing them and getting them online, and I’ve even preached a sermon. Today, I’m coming to you as “newsletter writer” with an update on where we’re at. 

What a summer it’s been. While war, tragedy and strife are always happening in the world, recently it has seemed a little more overwhelming than usual. Events in the Middle East can sometimes seem far away, but police shootings like the one in Ferguson, MO happen right in our own streets. It makes you wonder if there’s such a thing as a safe haven anymore. Like most of you, we learned about and followed along with these events via Twitter and Facebook.

Social media is a double-edged sword. While it can help bring us together as a people, it can also expose us to things that would be easier to just avoid. But most importantly, at least to us, social media has been a great reminder that people are seeking out voices like Revolution Church more than ever before. 

Recently, Pastor Jay appeared on Marc Maron’s podcast, “WTF”. The response from his listeners has been extraordinary. It often feels like we don’t have the support we so desperately need, financially or otherwise. But after this interview, many people have reached out to us and convinced us of the opposite.

We want to be there for that world, but we can’t do it alone. If you are on board with what we do, we need your support. Our bills are piling up; we need to hire a lawyer to register as a non-profit in our  home state of Minnesota, we need to keep our websites up and maintained, we need to pay our accountant and we need to pay rent.

In short, we need to make sure that Pastor Jay can keep making appearances and reaching as many people with his message of grace and acceptance as he can. 

Please consider a fully tax-deductible donation to Revolution, either in the form of a recurring monthly contribution or a one-time payment. We pledge to you that we’ll stretch every dollar we receive as far as we can. There are still too many people out there who are hurting and vulnerable and it’s our job to do all we can to reach them. With you by our side, we’ll keep moving in that direction.

In Love, 

Paolo Mello

Thanks for the Wtf podcast. Although I'm a practicing Christian and Sunday school teacher, I didnt realize how much of a failure I felt like until you spoke to Marc about grace and perfection. I burst into tears unexpectedly. Thank you. I am going to read Galatians now.
revolutionchurch revolutionchurch Said:

Don’t feel like a failure! We’re all just trying to figure it out… no one has it nailed. As long as we can figure it out together, we’ll stay on the right track =)

Hello,I enjoyed listening to you on Marc Maron's podcast. I live in Fort Mill,SC and remember seeing you on your parents show when you were younger.Even though i am not a religious person i felt bad about what happened to your family. I was happy to hear that you are doing better now i know things were bad for awhile..I miss your mother she was such a trailblazer to me when it came to gay rights and AIDS. That can be a rare thing here in the South. You take care
revolutionchurch revolutionchurch Said:

Thank you so much for those kind words, friend.

Asker Anonymous Asks:
What an amazing story on WTF. You have quite a strong soul to live through that childhood. I am so glad your mom was there for you. I think you are a revolutionary, because you are integrating the cool factor and god. I wish my generation did not feel embarrassed about saying they believe in God. People have to step into the New Age group for that. I really respect you, and I wish you many blessings, you deserve it.
revolutionchurch revolutionchurch Said:

We don’t feel very “cool”, but thanks for the compliment! We’re really just trying to be ourselves and make others feel comfortable with who they are, too.

Asker Anonymous Asks:
Your not changing lives, your lying to them!!!
revolutionchurch revolutionchurch Said:

We have never claimed that we are “changing lives”, and we have never claimed that we 100% know the truth. We just love people. If that looks like lying to you, then… don’t know what to tell ya.
