We are so proud of our Chairperson Teagan 🫶✝️🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍⚧️

We couldn’t be more proud of Teagan MacAodhagáin who will be formally ordained as Ireland’s first ever transgender Christian minister during a service at Harbour Faith Community on Sunday.

Teagan spent a year at Harbour on his internship en route to becoming an ordained minister with the MCC denomination. (The Metropolitan Community Church has 222 member congregations across 37 countries.)

Teagan is a gifted communicator, a natural pastor and a tireless advocate for full inclusion across the Christian church.

He lives in Dublin with his wife and three children.

For a bit of context around Teagan’s journey in his own words, you can listen to this short reflection from RTE Radio 1:

For our part, we are forever grateful to all those LGBTQ+ people of faith who have somehow managed to keep faith with the church despite the appalling treatment they have received within its walls.

Not only have you stayed, but you’ve offered to serve with your gifts of wisdom, leadership and courage. You have been Christ to us all along, and we thank God for the light you have brought us.
