The New England Region Congregational Life staff welcomes a new team member, Christine Purcell. Christine currently serves as the Transitions Program Manager for the UUA’s Southern Region where she works closely with congregational leaders, search committees, and transitions coaches to support ministerial search processes. Christine will assume the transitions portfolio for both the New England Region and the Southern Region.
“Transitions work is my passion and being able to focus solely on it for the New England Region and the Southern Region is a dream come true,” according to Christine.
Working closely with our UUA Transitions Office and IT department, Christine has been instrumental in the standardization and updating the ministry search system that will help us to streamline and customize our transitions processes. Having dedicated staff focusing on transitions work frees other program staff to serve congregations in other ways. Christine will continue to reside in the Southern Region but will be available to New England congregations and staff online and in person as needed. Welcome, Christine!
