Christe Lunsford! https://www.uufg.org/news/search-updates/1610-meet-our-ministerial-candidate.html https://www.uufg.org/news/search-updates/1610-meet-our-ministerial-candidate.html On Sunday, March 5, the UUFG Congregation voted to call Rev. Christe Lunsford to serve as the Fellowship's new settled minister. Christe has accepted the call; their ministry will officially begin on August 1, 2019.

Christe Lunsford, Ministerial CandidateRev. Christe Lunsford is currently serving as Intern Minister at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Rockford, Illinois. Christe holds a Master of Divinity from Meadville Lombard Theological School as well as a Masters in Fine Arts for Theatrical Production and Design from Florida Atlantic University.

Rev. Christe is excited about joining the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Gainesville to celebrate the joys and sorrows in life in beloved community while seeking truth and meaning in the world.

Christe is dedicated to anti-racism and anti-oppression work. As a trans-masculine/non-binary person who uses they/them pronouns, Rev. Christe’s call toward parish ministry serves to lift up voices from the margins as a way of de-centering whiteness and demand the same of others. They work to create communities that are able to have deep conversations about difficult topics, ever-seeking what holds each of us back from creating the world in which we wish to live.
