Sabbatical Minister, Rev. Kimberley Debus
The congregation has voted to hire the Rev. Kimberley Debus as a part-time sabbatical minister while Rev. Craig is on his sabbatical. During the sabbatical (August 4 through December 2nd), Rev. Kimberley will provide ministerial support to the UUSO. She will present nine services (out of eighteen) over the sabbatical. She’ll also meet with the Board, core staff, and Sabbatical Committee every month. She’ll be available for on-call pastoral care via phone and in-person pastoral meetings when she is in town. She would be available for consultation via phone to all leadership and staff during this time, as well. We hope you will find this page helpful in learning more about Rev. Kimberley Debus and her ministry.
