A United Methodist Church (UMC) pastor in North Carolina who married a gay couple won't lose her job.

According to The Charlotte Observer, the Rev. Val Rosenquist, who married John Romano and Jim Wilborne in April at the First United Methodist Church of Charlotte where she serves as pastor, also won't face a church trial for marrying the couple.

Clergy who violate UMC policy which forbids pastors from marrying gay couples may lose their jobs, stand trial or even be stripped of their church credentials.

The Western North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church has sealed details in the case until 2018 – those involved, including Rosenquist and complainants, cannot discuss the matter – but said Tuesday that a “just resolution” had been reached.

Amy Coles, assistant to the bishop, confirmed that Rosenquist will continue in her post.
