Welcome Our New Community Outreach and Small Groups Coordinator!

Greetings!  I am Brad Herron, and I am excited to be recently hired as your Community Outreach and Small Groups Coordinator.  I am a 25-year member of UCC Missoula and actually was on staff for several years as the Coordinator of Faith Development about 20 years ago.  After that, I returned to graduate school and then back to classroom teaching.  This June, I will retire from teaching and start this next chapter of life.  I have two kids who live far away, and travel will no doubt be part of my “retirement.”  Though I have volunteered for the church in various capacities, I am pulled to more fully help us achieve our mission by joining the staff.  This is a part-time position, and before I retire, it will be an even more part-time position.  During this initial phase, I plan to spend time in discovery mode, learning about existing small groups and ways to engage outside of UCC.  I’ll share more about the specifics of the position in a future e-blast.
