Rev. Don Rollins serves as Accredited Interim Minister to UUCNH. Ordained and fellowshipped (officially approved by the Unitarian Universalist Association, our parent body) in 1987, most of his ministerial career has been spent in interim and short-term ministries. He’s also worked as a musician, public school teacher and substance abuse counselor.
Don holds degrees in social studies education, religious education and addictions ministries. In addition to serving UUCNH during this time of transition, he spends his monthly weekend out of our pulpit as quarter-time contract minister with the UU Fellowship of Athens (OH).
Don’s home base is Jackson, OH, where his partner, Mary Bracey, and other family members live; but he’s served UU congregations in all major regions of the U.S. and three Canadian provinces.
Don is a musician/songwriter, and contributor with The Progressive Populist, a bi-monthly, alternative-press newspaper headquartered in Texas. And his extracurricular interests include exercise, cycling, reading, writing and guitar.
He considers serving UUCNH a great opportunity, and unique setting for practicing the art of interim ministry.
