Payne, who heads The Gospel Reformation Network (GRN), which seeks to cultivate healthy Reformed PCA churches, commented that, “The sexual revolution has come to the PCA, and it has introduced itself through Revoice … The controversy over Revoice and the new ‘gay Christian’ movement will surely test the mettle of our beloved denomination.
