Minister in Fellowship with the Unitarian Universalist Association

Rev. Dr. Jan Carlsson-Bull holds final fellowship with the UUA as a parish minister and a community minister. Ordained at the Unitarian Church of All Souls, New York City, she has served that congregation, First Parish Unitarian Universalist in Cohasset, MA, and the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Kingston, NY for a total of 15 years. For 19 years, she was active as a lay leader at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Montclair, New Jersey and in the Metro/NY District’s anti-racism initiative.

Unitarian Universalist Ministry

Unitarian Universalist ministry is a pilgrimage in religious community, whereby we who are professional ministers seek to invite, invoke, inspire, and invigorate all who affiliate with this faith community to open our hearts and minds and roll up our sleeves as we practice (because it takes so much practice) compassionate justice, mindfulness, gentle humor, and reverence for that which we recognize as holy. Jan’s call to professional ministry moved from loud whispers during her teen years to profound yearning long after she had graduated from seminary and even earned her doctorate. Being a Unitarian Universalist minister integrates the many strands of who she is and all that she values.

The Horizon

Jan in Paris Rev. Dr. Carlsson-Bull envisions serving effectively and efficiently, passionately and compassionately a congregation eager for a minister seasoned in the worship arts, lifespan religious education, pastoral care, rites of passage, outreach and justice making, stewardship, governance, community and interfaith partnerships, and denominational connections. As a ministerial leader and a partner in faith, she will invoke and affirm congregational health and imagination across the multiple facets of congregational life.

As your minister, Jan will be present for and with you pastorally and prophetically. She is ripe and ready for this path. Her husband is abundantly supportive. Their children are grown, and they are expecting their third completely adored and adorable grandchild. They are eager to embark on this prospective path of unfolding ministry.
