UCC is a congregationalist church. What does that mean? Among many values, it means that you, the people, ALL the people, hold the power to lead and serve the UCCP community. Yes, we have paid staff and an ordained pastor. They are skilled servants who we empower to work WITH our congregation's leadership. We are committed, in the tradition of Jesus' rabbinic way, to listening deeply to the newest voices among us. We welcome you to have an immediate and honored voice with the congregation. Below are a number of people who are involved in different areas of our ministry and mission. Feel free to contact them directly to learn more!
Rev. Jason Hubbard
Hi, I'm Rev. Jason Hubbard, Pastor and Head of Staff at UCC. My work is to help UCCP explore the great depth of an ancient tradition and connect that wisdom to our real lives. I also help to inspire us all to become active in shaping our world for a just and common good. I haven't always been a minister. I've built several businesses, been a stay-at-home Dad, raised five kids in a blended family, and have lots of stuff I'm still working on. I earned a Masters in Divinity at Western Theological Seminary where I learned to love the ancient languages behind an English bible that never made much sense to me. If I have to name my way, I'm something like a mystic-jewish-christian-yogi-pluralist. What does that mean? Well, we'd have to spend some time together to really explore it. And that's why I'm here - to spend time with you and your desire to create a life of deeper meaning and greater value. Church is messy and so beautiful it will burst your heart. I invite you to a messy, playful, deeply honest, truly life-changing journey at UCC Petaluma. You can reach me directly at 616-634-1452 or email@example.com
