On Sunday January 30, 2022, members of the Eno River Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (ERUUF) enthusiastically voted to call Reverend Jacqueline Brett as new Lead Minister. Reverend Brett currently serves as ERUUF’s Minister for Congregational Engagement and will begin their new role in Summer 2022 following the planned departure of current Lead Minister, Reverend Deborah Cayer. Individual Unitarian Universalist congregations select their own Lead Minister, unlike many religious denominations whose congregational leadership is assigned centrally.
Reverend Brett brings a wealth of talent, leadership and experience to the position of Lead Minister, with a robust background in worship, program development, pastoral care, administration, and racial equity and social justice. “ERUUF is eager to begin this new chapter with Reverend Brett and we are all excited about the vision they have for ERUUF and the wider community,” said Bonnie LaCroix, Chair of ERUUF’s Board of Trustees.
