Community Ministers

UUCB has three affiliated community ministers: Rev. Theresa Hardy, Rev. Sue Magidson, and Rev. Dr. Jane Ramsey. Each is an ordained UU minister whose primary ministry is in the larger community outside our congregation. Out in the world, they serve as professional hospice and hospital chaplains and spiritual directors.  At UUCB, they serve in membership, workshop facilitation, pastoral care, teaching, and preaching. With few exceptions, their service at UUCB is unpaid. The word “affiliated” means that they each have a formal relationship with UUCB, voted on by the Board, and summarized in a written covenant.

UUCB is also blessed with several other ministers who are not formally affiliated community ministers but still add to the power of community with their pastoral, spiritual or justice-seeking presence.

Ministers Emeriti
