UUCT recently welcome a new minister to the congregation!
Here is some information about Rev. Amanda Schuber:
“I have lived in the deep South for most of my life and consider myself a dedicated Southern Minister. Currently, I live in the Huntsville, AL area with my wife, Wanda, and two of our three children. I have served the UU world in various capacities over the last 27 years, including sitting on the Boards of EQUUAL Access, Interweave, and CUUYAN (Continental UU Young Adult Network). I spent two years living in Boston, working at the UUA in the Office of Congregational Fundraising. Additionally, I have been a Beyond Categorical Thinking facilitator since 2004 and have been privileged to work with well over 50 congregations in that time. Congregationally, I have held many positions, including social action chair, worship chair, and DRE.
I am a graduate of Starr King School for the Ministry, and was welcomed into Preliminary Fellowship with the UUA in 2021. My call to the Ministry currently pulls me to the parish and trauma/chaplain ministry in the more distant future. I hope to remain in the South, working with a midsize congregation committed to social justice and deepening community connections. I am an advocate for disability rights and visibility in the wider world and within our denomination. Specifically, I strive to create a welcoming and supportive space for those living with mental health challenges and their families.”
