What is the Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan Community Churches?
We are a denomination founded by The Rev. Elder Troy Perry in 1968. The dream of this former Pentecostal minister was to create a Christian church in which every human being is welcomed and affirmed.
Everyone includes lesbian, gay, trans-, bi-, inter-sexed, and our heterosexual parents and friends. Forty plus years later we have congregations in most large U.S. cities, and in many countries including Canada, Mexico, New Zealand, the Philippines, South Africa, Nigeria, Eastern and Western Europe, and Australia. Water of Life MCC in Tucson is one of these 300+ congregations.
