Jay Abernathy, Interim Minister minister@sunnyhill.org 412-561-6277 Office Hours M to Th, 9 a.m. to noon (please phone first or make appointment)
In August 2010, UUCSH welcomed the Reverend Dr. Jay Abernathy as interim minister. Jay is a native of Nashville, Tennessee, and is beginning his 37th year of ministry to Unitarian Universalist (UU) congregations. After a short career in architecture, Jay was ordained and installed by the First Unitarian Church, Columbus, Ohio, as Associate Minister and Campus Minister to Ohio State University. After two years, he returned to graduate school in Toronto, where he also served a Canadian fellowship part-time. In 1979 Jay was installed as minister of the historic South Church in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
He later returned to the south to serve Chattanooga, Tennessee, before moving to Naples, Florida. This was part of the Extension Ministry program of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA), and the small Naples church grew as the area became an increasingly popular retirement and vacation center. In 1997 the congregation built a totally new facility, which provided more seating for worship, offices, religious education rooms, and a commercial kitchen.
Jay moved to Rockville, Maryland, in 1999, to a congregation that was also planning new construction: a 350-seat meeting room with ample space for adult and teen religious education. He later served a congregation in Fort Wayne, Indiana, for six years.
He has been active in UU ministry organizations and in UUA-related boards and groups. He helped found the Urban Church Coalition, which introduced the idea of community ministers. He has served on civic boards, including Planned Parenthood, United Way, and the Chattanooga Housing Resources Board, and he co-wrote the Collier County (Naples) Housing Plan. Jay has also served as president of several clergy groups.
Jay believes that church is a model community for the human family. He supports an active, lively, and joyous congregation, and encourages social justice work and personal growth in moral and spiritual ideals. He wrote: "Sunday services are the center of church life, but only a small part of our time together.
