Our Minister and Staff
Rev. Tracie Barrett
Rev. Tracie considers herself a Unitarian Universalist evangelist, sharing the good news of our liberal faith. She focuses on each person’s journey to spiritual growth, truth, and meaning. While she grew up experiencing many different faith traditions, she says, “when I look back, I believe I was always a Universalist and a Unitarian. Coming home to Unitarian Universalism changed my life”, and she works hard to give that opportunity to everyone. She believes strongly in a shared ministry concept with Judith as our Director of Religious Education and the congregation itself. “Every committee, every member, is ministering to our community,” she says.
Rev. Tracie received her Master of Divinity in 2017 from Meadville Lombard Theological School. While in seminary, she completed one unit of Chaplaincy internship at AdventHealth Hospital and served for two years as the Student Minister at Tri-County Unitarian Universalists in Summerfield, FL. Tri-County UU ordained her in 2017. She served three years as the Consulting Minister at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Lake County. She is pursuing a Doctor of Ministry at United Theological School, focusing on revitalizing congregations. She brings a television, theater, and ritual background to her ministry.
