A recent debate regarding Homosexuality has resulted in the split of the satellite campus of a United Methodist congregation in Kansas and is causing many congregants to leave the mainline denomination.  Reports indicate that Asbury United Methodist Church of Wichita’s west campus, which had an average 350 regular attendance has decided to cut ties with both the main campus and the denomination.

This recent vote came at a meeting that was held last Thursday which featured Asbury Church Senior Pastor Rick Just and West Campus Pastor Aaron Wallace.  Asbury UMC recently made a statement on Wednesday, noting that at the meeting Pastor Wallace “acknowledged his struggle with some of the conflict that has been occurring in the life of the denomination.”
