There’s a new pastor in St. Paul Park, and he’s gay. Community United Church of Christ in the southeast suburb of the Twin Cities has hired Obadiah Ballinger, a 27 year old Yale Divinity School graduate.

Ballinger married his partner in Connecticut last year.

The Pioneer Press has more on Ballinger and Community United Church in Christ.
