(Mostly True)

Rev. Roger Jones was called as the UUSS Senior Minister in early 2014 by a 98% affirmative vote of congregation members.  Prior to that he served the church as the Family Minister, starting in 2008.  He is responsible for worship services and music programs, pastoral care, new-member programs, generosity and stewardship, Religious Education for children, youth and adults, community outreach, and oversight of the church’s staff and ministries in general.

 

His interests are spiritual practice, social justice, the history and sociology of religion, building community across the generations, wacky humor, farmers’ markets, and dessert. Locally he serves on the advisory board of the YMCA, is a member of the Rainbow Chamber of Commerce, and is a subscriber at several theater companies. He has previously served as a member of the grants panel for the Boston-based Unitarian Universalist Fund for a Just Society and as national treasurer for the UU Ministers Association. He has served as minister to UU congregations in Silicon Valley, Minnesota, New England, and the Chicago area.

 

A native of Indiana, he holds a BA in English and Spanish and an MBA in finance from Indiana University, and he worked 10 years in Illinois State government. He has a ministry degree from Meadville Lombard Theological School in Chicago and is a Doctor of Ministry candidate at Pacific School of Religion.
