We are located just North of Commercial Blvd two blocks from the ocean
You never know where you might meet Jesus! (Community Church was at Beach Pride 2018)

Rev. Fred Powell-Haig
I might as well be stamped “Made in China”, since I was born in Taipei--but I'm composed of American materials imported directly from South Carolina. I am a citizen of the world though, since I have worked in the US, France and Scotland, and spent time in Thailand, Europe, and South Africa. Trained as a foreign language teacher, I switched careers, becoming one of the first out gay pastors to be granted an MDiv from Columbia Theological Seminary (Presbyterian Church, USA). I have since pastored churches in the UK, Atlanta, Chicago, both Carolinas and New Orleans. In January 2018 I was offered the pulpit at Community Church of Lauderdale by the Sea where I am the first out gay pastor in this town. I enjoy working with couples preparing for marriage, world travel, volunteering and learning new skills and creative hobbies.
