Ministerial Search Committee

The Ministerial Search Committee, elected in May, 2021, is honored and excited to lead the search for the next settled minister of First Universalist Church of Denver! While the seven members of our committee will be facilitating this year-long process, many members and friends of our church will have the opportunity to contribute along the way. The committee is meeting weekly, focused right now on getting organized. Click below to see our most recent updates!
