All ages religious education, and particularly the engagement of children and youth is central to my ministry. I consider myself a parish minister with a DRE mindset, meaning that I bring a lens and a love for religious education to my whole ministry. I believe in all age faith formation and see our churches as centers of opportunity for instilling lifelong curiosity, and powerful values of love and inclusion. I love bringing creativity and innovation into our worship spaces to make worship more engaging for people of all ages.
I have the advantage of being a lifelong Unitarian Universalist with a DRE parent, and so I have experienced our RE programs firsthand as well as having taught many of them. I’ve worked in religious education professionally, and in my current ministry I am the head advisor to our youth group.
Supporting children, youth and families, is the heart of my ministry. I want our church to be a place where kids have a network of safe, loving adults, who know them and care about them. I am passionate about developing the leadership of our young people so that they see themselves as vital leaders in Unitarian Universalism. I am so excited to bring my love and experience with religious education to UUCH and even more excited to build a collaborative partnership with your director of religious education.
