The Faith UCC Church Council is pleased to announce the selection of Rev. Alexis Fuller-Wright to serve in pastoral leadership as a short-term pulpit supply pastor during this time of pastoral transition. Rev. Fuller-Wright comes highly recommended by the Iowa Conference. Her brief biography is below.
Rev. Fuller-Wright will join us and lead worship until the end of April. She will assist us as we begin the process of taking the steps to creating a church profile and identifying a more formal interim pastor, prior to our calling a more permanent worship leader for Faith UCC.
We are very pleased that Rev. Fuller-Wright has agreed to join in our shared ministry for the next couple of months.
Rev. Alexis Fuller-Wright has joyfully served congregations in New Jersey, Maine, and California. She represents a new generation of leadership within the United Church of Christ (UCC) who have been called by the Spirit to bring new life and energy into the church. Her passions in ministry are helping people deeply connect with the heart of God and empowering congregations to find new and relevant ways to live out their faith in the 21st century.
Alexis is the former co-moderator of the UCC 2030 Clergy Network and a member of the UCC Next Generational Leadership Initiative, a program for young clergy who are passionate about transforming the church. She received her Master of Divinity from Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, California.
Alexis recently stepped away from full-time ministry to help shepherd her family through the pandemic. She is currently doing part-time development work for the Waldorf School of Princeton and training to become a certified spiritual director. She also serves as a member of the pre-ordination committee of the NJ Association, as a board member of HiTops (a local youth sexual health organization), and as the faith community liaison for the Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice.
Alexis is married to Liz, a science writer for Princeton University, and they spend their non-working hours chasing after their kids, Nora (5) and Will (18 months).
