Rev. Dr. Katie Hays is the planter-pastor and Lead Evangelist at Galileo Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), or "Galileo" for short, in Mansfield, Texas. Galileo Church seeks and shelters spiritual refugees -- those for whom church is boring, irrelevant, exclusive, or even painful -- especially LGBTQ people and the people who love them. Galileo was born in the suburbs of Dallas-Fort Worth at Pentecost in 2013.
