Anita Carol Hill is a pastor at Saint Paul-Reformation Lutheran Church (SPR) in Saint Paul, Minnesota. The congregation is part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, however, her ordination is not recognized by the ELCA. Hill is a lesbian in a committed relationship, and ELCA guidelines require celibacy from "ministers who self-identify as homosexuals." Hill made national headlines when she was called and ordained by the congregation in defiance of ELCA regulations. She is one of a handful of openly gay and lesbian pastors serving congregations within the ELCA. This has caused much controversy within the church.
