The church pastor, Freddy Wyatt, said in a story reported by The Blaze that "this particular sermon series struck a nerve in the neighborhood.
He wrote: "The restaurant that was hosting us had received significant backlash from the neighborhood for hosting a Christian church in their space. The backlash came before the sermon was even preached ... Our church was sobered by the persecution and responded with grace and gratitude. ... We were given a short two months to find a new space. Not an easy task."
