Dr. Randy Partain is a Humanist Celebrant and a candidate for fellowshipped ministry with the Unitarian Universalist Association. He brings over 25 years of experience in ministry, as well as a passion for meaningful, authentic community. In his own journey, Randy has left the faith tradition he grew up in, sought a new place where he could engage with integrity and authenticity, and discovered a spiritual home in the Unitarian Universalist community. He understands the importance of creating community that's welcoming to people who have left a faith community and are wanting to redefine spirituality, as well as people who have always been happy with their spiritual identity and life-long UUs. From his own perspective, Randy believes that "spirituality" is a way we label the intentional practices that help us live with integrity to our personal guiding principles and nurture greater wholeness in one another's lives and in the world around us. He passionately defines ministry as inviting people into a deeper relationship with themselves, deeper connection with others, and deeper awareness of the world we all share.
