Randy first served us as an intern at the Copperfield Campus of First UU* from June 2014 to September 2016. He returned in March 2019 to serve as Tapestry UU Church’s quarter-time, and later halftime, minister until June 2021. During this time, Randy distinguished himself as a caring, dedicated and hardworking minister. Over half of our congregation participated in his months long Weaving Our Lives program, which he adapted for UUs from the Christian Faithwalking Program. Weaving Our Lives was one of the best spiritual growth groups we’ve ever experienced, and although Randy is no longer our minister, his teachings live on inside us. On May 5, 2021, Tapestry was proud to ordain Randy as a UU Minister.
On June 30, 2021, Randy left Tapestry in order become the Minister of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Cleveland, a church with approximately 300 members. We at Tapestry were very sad to see Randy go, but we are pleased to have played a small part in his journey to become a very capable and inspiring minister, and we wish him and UUCC all the best.
