Rev. Jeanne's experience, heart, commitment, and leadership skills will lead to transformative results in the UUA

Clark_Jeffrey.jpgI served as the Chair of the Ministerial Search Committee that brought Jeanne to the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Richmond almost 11 years ago. During her time with us, she has transformed our congregation in ways that many of us would not have thought possible. Under her leadership, our congregation has:

          • had a 71% increase in membership
          • doubled the budget
          • trained numerous ministerial students and interns who are now serving their own congregations
          • completed a capital campaign that raised over $1.8 million dollars
          • consistently provided support and resources to other UU congregations
          • dramatically increased the diversity within our congregation
          • become a bulwark for social justice in the Richmond community

Rev. Pupke’s vision, inspiration, and leadership have been the moving force behind these changes. I know that her experience, heart, commitment, and leadership skills will lead to equally transformative results in the UUA.
