HIV & Faith Leaders Mini-Documentary



Pastor Dennis Massenberg reflects on the internal struggle he faced in reconciling his faith and his sexuality on the path to establishing his own church.

“Purpose in the Pulpit” is the second installment of a HIV & Faith Leaders video series that was created by the CODE Office, the Triangle Empowerment Center, and photojournalist Carter McCall over the course of a year and a half. The series was born from local faith communities of color to explore the intersectionality of HIV risk and faith-based communities, and create a discussion tool geared toward youth who may feel ostracized from their spiritual homes.




A Church for Everyone

“Purpose in the Pulpit” was recently featured in Vanishing Point, a publication of Duke University’s Center for Documentary Studies.
