Hello, my name is Rylee Uhrich and I have been serving as the student minister with UUCT and Borderlands UU since September 2020. I am mid-degree, pursuing a Masters of Divinity at Starr King
School for the Ministry and working toward Unitarian Universalists ordination. I came into ministry with 7 years of experience in roles of spiritual leadership in Pagan communities. I am motivated in my call to ministry by work for personal and societal healing through community building. I was raised in the Bay Area in California and have lived the majority of the past 15 years in western Washington. My first trip to Arizona was in 2009 when I came to volunteer with No More Deaths, so it was intentional that when I sought a congregational internship I had UUCT in mind. I look forward to accompanying you as the Parental Leave Minister during the months of Rev. Bethany’s leave.
