Senior pastor called to CUCC

With thanks to God the congregation has called Reverend Lacey Renee Brown to be our senior pastor.

Pastor Lacey has returned to her congregation (Central Congregational UCC) for a few months to be with them as they move into their pastoral transition.  We will continue to pray for Pastor Lacey, for Jordyne, and for Central Congregational UCC in this time of farewells and possibilities.  Pastor Lacey's first day at CUCC will be May 5, and her first Sunday with us May 10.

About Pastor Lacey
Lacey grew up in Ft Myers, Florida, where her parents and brother still reside. Lacey attended Flagler College in St. Augustine, where she earned her Bachelor of Arts in religion and philosophy. A short while later, she felt called to ministry and decided to pursue a master of divinity degree from Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, Georgia.  After securing her M.Div. in 2012, she served as a chaplain resident on the oncology unit at Gwinnett Medical Center, just outside of Atlanta. Shortly after that, she was hired by Central Congregational UCC to serve as a youth minister. Over the past seven years, Pastor Lacey remained at Central UCC, where she was later promoted to the roles of associate pastor and acting senior minister. In addition to working full time, Lacey is back in school to earn a Doctor of Ministry degree at Columbia Theological Seminary.

Lacey loves the outdoors and has a passion for running. She is moving to Raleigh with her partner, Jordyne Krumroy and their pug-mix, Rocky. Jordyne works for the non-profit, Welcoming America, where she is the southern regional manager. She is originally from Greensboro, NC and is excited to be moving back closer to family.
