Rev. Jacqueline Ziegler

Rev. Jacqueline Ziegler

Upon the resignation of the Rev. Dan Spencer from his 13-year position leading the Granite Peak Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Prescott this past July, the congregation has begun a deliberative, two-year transition process to prepare for a new, settled minister. With the support of the Unitarian Universalist Association, the congregation has hired an interim minister specially trained and experienced in helping congregations process their previous experiences, take an in-depth look at who they are, and seek out the ministerial candidate who is most able to lead them in realizing their vision of the future.

Beginning this September, Granite Peak welcomed the Rev. Jacqueline Ziegler as its interim minister. A professional transition

specialist who has served congregations in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Florida and Illinois, she received a BA in community ministry and parish ministry from the University of Wisconsin in 1976, a MDiv from Meadville Lombard Theological School in 1994, and was ordained in 1996. She also brings training in and passion for ecological and process theology, science and religion, and democracy.

Along with assisting the congregation to prepare for a new professional minister, she will promote the religion of Unitarian Universalism and the Granite Peak Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Prescott and the larger geographical area.
