Rev. Dr. Leslie Taylor Called to be Senior Minister!

We are thrilled to announce that Rev. Dr. Leslie Carole Taylor, also known as “Pastor Leslie”, has been called to be our next Senior Minister!

After an extensive discernment and search process, the Search Committee unanimously recommended Leslie to the Admin and Ministry Councils, which also unanimously approved that Leslie be presented to the congregation to confirm her selection. The congregation approved her call on September 22.

Leslie has more than 30 years of experience as an ordained minister, including many years as a Senior Minister. She is passionate about the church being engaged in ministry in the community, which will serve us well as we move into our new focus on our outward mission of helping children in our community and our inward mission of deepening our spiritual development and our interpersonal relationships.

"I am excited to be a part of a congregation that has a history of such dynamic pastors and leaders,” Pastor Leslie said. “I look forward to our future together as we seek to serve God by serving our community and one another in new, bold, and innovative ways-- telling a timeless story in new ways to a new generation."

This is an exciting time for our congregation! Please be sure to attend Pastor Leslie’s installation on Sunday, November 17th!
