Your Ministerial Search Committee is excited to announce that our Ministerial Candidate will be Reverend Kelly Dignan!
Because of her warm ministerial presence, high emotional intelligence, passion for our faith and clear vision of shared ministry with lay leaders, we believe Rev. Dignan is the best match to support and guide this congregation as we grow into a bright future.
The past seven years of Developmental Ministry with Rev. Howell Lind have prepared this church to form a lasting and successful partnership with a called minister. After learning from you about the hopes, desires and needs of the congregation and after conducting a nationwide search in which we met and were deeply impressed by several excellent ministers, it is clear to us that Rev. Dignan is the spiritual leader this church has been seeking. She knows and loves this church and feels a personal call to be our minister.
Please explore the Our Ministerial Candidate section of this website to find more information about Rev. Dignan’s personal and ministerial history; the process by which this committee reached our decision; and the opportunities you will have to meet and get to know Rev. Dignan during Candidate Week from Saturday, April 25 through Sunday, May 3.
The final decision now rests with the members of UUCB, who will have the opportunity to vote to call Rev. Kelly Dignan as our settled minister at the final event of Candidate Week: a Special Congregational Meeting at noon on Sunday, May 3.
We look forward to joining with you and Rev. Dignan during a thoughtful and joyous Candidate Week, as this church moves forward in loving and covenantal partnership toward a settled ministry.
Yours in faith,
The UUCB 2014-2015 Ministerial Search Committee
