November Share the Plate Recipient.

Rev. Overton is the founding pastor of Zao MKE Church. As a young, queer, trans (genderqueer) clergy person, Jonah has been called into ministry to build the church as queer space and organize communities and churches towards justice and liberation. Zao MKE Church is a new and growing church plant on Milwaukee’s East Side, with a diverse leadership team that is majority queer, trans, POC, and/or under the age of 40. Zao is Jesus Rooted, Justice Centered, and Radically Inclusive, and committed to radical urban ministry among progressive Millennials. Zao is active in many efforts towards liberation, including the Movement for Black Lives.

In this current season of protest and prophetic uprising, Zao launched three projects: The Depot, which is the largest local supply drop & distribution center for protesters; a medic training and resource hub; and a 24 hour prayer vigil for justice.  Forum Host: Bruce Wiggins
