Our Interim Minister
Rev. Dana Worsnop, comes to us after serving for a decade at Atkinson Memorial Church in Oregon City, Oregon. She also served an interim year and the Unitarian Church of Calgary in Alberta, Canada. She is a 2002 graduate of Starr King School for the Ministry and has also worked as an elementary teacher and newspaper reporter and editor. She is happy to serve BUUF in this time of transition, and happy as well to discover the beauties both subtle and evident of Boise and Idaho. She finds herself most content wandering the foothills with her loyal dog Scout, who is known to share office hours with her on occasion.
