ManishsmallerHeadshotThe Ministerial Search Team is ecstatic to introduce our Candidate for 13th Senior Minister of the First Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Ann Arbor. The Reverend Manish Mishra-Marzetti is an experienced Senior Minister who has served congregations in Massachusetts, New Jersey and Florida. Please read more here...

We are anxious for you to get to know Rev. Manish during Candidating Week, April 28th - May 6th. A special congregational meeting will be held after second service on May 6th and all members will be asked to vote on whether to call Rev. Manish as our next Senior Minister.


Deeper rootsDuring the annual canvass last October, one of our chief goals was to fund a new Pastoral Care/Social Justice Coordinator to help those programs run more effectively. We didn't reach our goal then, but we have another opportunity to fill this critical need now.

We've launched a short-term campaign, Deeper Roots, to raise $30,000 by April 12. This money will help us fund the new Coordinator position and allow UUAA to deepen its roots

  • with each other through a broad and meaningful pastoral care program
  • with the wider community through greater support for social action

We're aiming to have the person start June 1, 2018, giving our new Senior Minister an even stronger staff system to help their ministry at UUAA thrive.

You can support the Deeper Roots campaign online, by check, by credit card, or with a Deeper Roots pledge.
