(Newsweek) California pastor Greg Fairrington told worshippers at his Destiny Christian Church they will still be able to attend in-person services this Sunday, despite Governor Gavin Newsom’s latest lockdown order.
“I believe my mandate as a pastor is to obey the word of God. Worship is a part of what we do together as a church corporately and we need to do this. This is important that we do this,” Fairrington said in a video posted to Facebook. “We are not going to allow the government to use data that is not supported factually to shut the church down.”
