Dallas, Texas (ANS) – Pastor Brian Gibson opens his churches in Texas and Kentucky Sunday, May 17th. He invites churches across America to join him. Sign up here to join the Peaceably Gather movement and stand for your constitutional rights. First Liberty Institute pledges to defend our constitutional rights for churches across the country.
Megachurch Pastor Brian Gibson announced that he is opening the doors of his four churches on Sunday, May 17th. He is inviting churches across the nation to join him as part of Peaceably Gather Sunday. Pastor Gibson launched Peaceably Gather as a way for churches and faith leaders to affirm their constitutional rights. He hopes that they will also open the doors of their places of worship.
Legal watchdog group First Liberty Institute announced they will provide legal representation to Pastor Brian Gibson and any of his four churches that are targeted by local governments. They agree that it is time for us to open our churches, practice safety measures, and assume our Constitutional rights to gather and worship. Pastor Gibson encourages churches to call First Liberty Institute with questions about their local situation.

“People in churches, mosques, and synagogues have been told that they can not gather. This is regardless of any social distancing or protective practices they implement. Many experience threats of retribution from local governments if they don’t keep their doors closed. This is not just ironic or random. It’s a deliberate slap in the face of religious freedom. Why does a Costco or Walmart have hundreds of people inside their building at any one time, but places of worship and people of faith can’t be trusted to implement the same safety procedures in their own buildings?” Pastor Gibson asked.
“The right to exercise our religious freedoms is the definition of Essential. This right must not be trampled on, and every Sunday that we aren’t in church we lose more freedom. On May 17th people of faith can exercise the appropriate social distancing and sanitary approaches. But most importantly, we must exercise our constitutional rights. Because rights not fought for will eventually be lost,” pastor Gibson said.
Peaceably Gather Is A Movement Of Churches To Stand For Our Freedoms
Peaceably Gather Sunday and the website derive their name from the 1st Amendment of the Constitution stating, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
The Peaceably Gather Campaign comes as a response to local elected leaders and law enforcement across the country targeting any attempt of places of worship to gather their members.
Pastor Gibson’s recent attempt to offer a drive-thru Easter celebration for children was targeted by local officials and shut down.
Kelly Shackelford, President, CEO, and Chief Counsel for First Liberty has committed their team will provide legal defense for Pastor Gibson and his churches in KY and TX in response to any action local governments take against HIS Church congregations and leadership.
