Message from the Board of Trustees

Updated: Apr 8

Dear UUCBV Member,

The Board of Trustees, in planning ahead for the conclusion of Rev. Donna Renfro’s two-year contract in August of 2020, evaluated the various forms of professional ministerial leadership available to us and voted to seek a minister credentialed under the Unitarian Universalist Association’s Interim Ministry program. A special search committee will be created, and the interim minister will be hired for a two-year term to begin in September 2020, with the goal of our calling a settled (permanent) minister to start in the fall of 2022.

We believe that this will best help us complete the developmental goals set out over the past few years while crafting a strategy for moving forward as a vibrant force for progressive religion in the Brazos Valley for many years to come. The interim minister is an independent voice, especially trained to guide congregations in this process, and cannot be called as the settled minister.

Through August we will still be able to experience the warmth and creativity that Rev. Donna has brought to our Sunday mornings and her leadership in the process of designing our new home on 29th Street in Bryan.
