Experience

Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray is a life-long Unitarian Universalist. Serving in ministry for 17 years, Susan brings the vision and the experience needed to lead our Association. From youth leadership at her home congregation in St. Louis to her current ministry in Phoenix, Susan has been part of congregations in all five regions of the UUA, giving her insight and experience in the regional differences across our movement. In the two congregations she has served as settled Minister, Susan has led significant organizational, strategic, numeric and financial growth.

Organizing for justice has always been central to Susan’s ministry. Because of her strong relationships and partnerships with community-based organizations in Phoenix, in 2011, current UUA President Peter Morales hired Susan to lead the Arizona Immigration Ministry. In this role, she was central to the planning and implementation of the 2012 Justice General Assembly in Phoenix. Susan was responsible for key political relationships with grassroots migrant rights groups and their connection to the UUA. She was described as “the face, voice and power” behind Justice GA which culminated in a 2000+ person candlelight vigil outside of Tent City Jail.

To the UUA Presidency, Susan brings the ability to articulate clearly our faith and its prophetic imperative in this moment. Additionally, she brings well-developed skills in vision casting, strategic decision-making, and strong spiritual and relational skills needed to develop the buy-in and capacity necessary for change within and outside of our congregations. These skills are critical to lead the Unitarian Universalist Association for greater mission and impact in the 21st century.

Prior to ministry, Susan received her Bachelor of Science in Molecular Biology and worked briefly in the field of genetic research in St. Louis, MO and Cambridge, MA.
