Yesterday we brought you the story of LeAnn Legans. Legans spent the last 17 years as a Ministry Leader with Andy Stanleys’ North Point Community Church while at the same time proudly and flagrantly sharing videos and images of herself affirming LGBTQ ideologies, wearing a rainbowed “Ally” shirt, and singing the praises of the annual Pride parade.
She’s not the first North Point leader to flaunt their gay-affirming creds, however. Other pro-LGBTQ leaders at the church include Parent Connect Director Amy Blakeslee, Care Director Pastor Debbie Causey, Production Team Leader Gregory Cook, Creative Director of Design Cameron Smith, Parent Care leader Sandi Harman-Waldrop, and Parent Connect leaders Greg and Lynn MacDonald.
While several of the North Point church leaders listed above have engaged in some scurrilous behavior, such as founding an openly pro-LGBTQ activist and advocacy group ‘Renovus’ which is designed to promote full LGBTQ inclusion and acceptance into the church, Legans went one step further when she headed out to a drag show on her birthday. Here, she handed out dollar bills to the performers, witnessed the sheer debauchery and deviancy of it all, and then received a lap dance from a drag queen, a very active and willing participant in the whole affair.
In our report, we insisted that some of her congregants and colleagues HAD to have seen her sodomy-praising posts on Instagram and Facebook. We posited that they must have known she was openly gay-affirming, as she wasn’t even hiding it, because it was simply accepted.
We were right.
Here is one of the posts she made with the following caption back in 2021:
“June is Gay Pride Month, and some of the best people I have ever known just also happen to be LGBTQ+. It doesn’t define them, but just like all the things that make you and me unique, it’s part of their stories. If you don’t think you know anyone that’s LGBTQ+, I would like to encourage you to not only open up your circle of friends this month and find some people that are different than you but open up your hearts and your minds. Ask about them and ask their stories. Be an ally. Be the change. #GayPride #LoveOneAnother #GayAllys #JesusCallsUsToLove #BeTheChange #PrideMonth #LoveWins #LGBTQ”
Legans received over a hundred “likes” and “heart” emojis from friends, regular North Point parishioners, and then some from former and current church employees.
- Jamie Cargill. Spent over a decade with North Point church as their Singles Creative Director.
- Brandon Coker. A long-time member of North Point’s praise and worship band.
- Michael Kanner. North Point Church’s Singles Gatherings Director.
- Meg Adamson. North Point Church’s Journey Director for nearly a decade, where she ‘pastors’ leaders and does vision casting for their ministry partners.
- Julie Tiedmann. Spent a decade as a worship leader at Buckhead church, where her husband was also a pastor. Now, she works at ThinkOrange under the leadership of Reggie Joiner, the man who founded North Point Community Church with Andy Stanley.
Legans also posted this image on Facebook with the caption:
“Life is never dull when one of your besties is a drag queen. I love you @alabamatp/ @codybradley (his drag name) And I always will.”
We were only able to capture a small selection of those who reacted fondly to the image before she took her page private, but these include:
- Katie Peters. The Adult Groups Director + Volunteer Assimilation Coordinator at East Cobb Church, one of North Point’s primary campuses.
- Sarah Bauer Anderson. Her husband is Rodney Anderson, Director of Singles for Buckhead Church and North Point Ministries, and she is a former North Point staffer. She attends North Point and is the author of the book The Space Between Us. Previously interviewed on stage and promoted by Andy Stanley, a brief perusal of her social media would strongly suggest that she is gay and trans-affirming.
Sadly, this is not the first time North Point church leaders demonstrated how stunningly compromised they are when it comes to sexuality and biblical gender roles.
In late 2021, a young man from the Woodstock City Church came out as a “transgendered woman” on Instagram, explaining that his pronouns were now she/her. As he introduced himself to the world, he asked those who knew him to be open-minded and curious while also delighting in how excited he was to make the change.
- Mitchell McGhee, a former staff worship leader ordained by WCC who still performs there occasionally.
- Jennifer McGhee, the Director of Transit.
- Ericah Stokes, the Executive Assistant to lead pastor Samer Massad.
- Meg Davidson, the Community Relations Director.
- Andy Kaefer, who spent seven years on Staff at North Point and WCC as Production Director.
- Scott Kitchen, the SPD in charge of service programming for youth events.
- Trey McKnight, who spent 15 years working for North Point as a worship leader/ communicator and then later WCC as the InsideOut Director.
- Andy Jones, the Middle School Director.
- Briteny Kaefer, the Programing & Events Producer at Buckhead Church, another North Point church.
North Point Community Church is broken, and it’s only a matter of time before it becomes widespread and well known.
In responds to the news that Legans was getting a lap dance at the drag show, one commenter wrote “This is NOT church, this is out of the pit of hell,’ causing Pastor Andy Stanley to pithily and dismissively rejoin “You are correct. Definitely not church.”
