After an extensive background in building management, real estate development and restaurant ownership and management, Fred Plumer made a career shift in 1981. He earned his M.Div. degree at the Pacific School of Religion. In 1984 Rev. Plumer was called to the Irvine United Congregational Church in Irvine, California to lead a UCC new church start. The church became known throughout the denomination as one of the more exciting and progressive mid-size congregations in the nation.
Rev. Plumer served on the Board of Directors of the Southern California Conference of the United Church of Christ (UCC) for five years, and chaired the Commission for Church Development and Evangelism for three of those years. He became a member of the Executive Council for The Center for Progressive Christianity in 1995 and has written The Study Guide for TCPC's "Eight Points. He has published numerous articles on church development, building faith communities and redefining the purpose of the enlightened Christian Church.
In the late 1980s Rev. Plumer initiated the idea and was the executive producer of a video and workbook on the Open and Affirming process in the UCC. This highly acclaimed video, "A Journey of Faith," has now been used in five countries and in thousands of churches of several denominations as a teaching tool for those interested in studying the relationship of the church and sexual orientation issues. It is still available as a UCC resource. In 1990 he was the recipient of ECCO's Humanitarian Award for his faithful work in this area.
Rev. Plumer has been active in the inter-faith dialogue since his seminary years. In 1989 under his leadership the UCC church agreed to host a small Jewish group of who wanted to start a Reconstructionist Synagogue. The congregations shared space, operating expenses, teaching forums, mission outreach projects, special services and meals for over 15 years. In 2000 with the support of the synagogue, a Mosque joined in this unique mix of religious traditions sharing space and ideas. The new relationship was covered by newspapers, two talk shows and was the subject of a special feature that ran on CNN news, Christmas Eve and Christmas day that same year.
In September of 2004 Rev. Plumer retired from the Irvine church so he could devote more time to writing and reclaiming the message of Jesus. In January of 2006 after Jim Adams, founder of The Center for Progressive Christianity retired as President, Fred was elected as the new President and Acting Director of the organization.

In 2010 under Reverend Plumer's guidance, ProgressiveChristianity.org published a 200 page children's curriculum that has received rave reviews in three countries. A second edition will be published in the spring.
Fred continues manage the growing PC.org organization and to write, travel, teach and speak across the country on the importance of re-examining the Christian faith for the 21st century.
