Rev. Lane-Mairead Campbell (they/them) is a lifelong Unitarian Universalist who realized a call to ministry and leading worship in the midst of Young Religious Unitarian Universalists (YRUU). Their journeys in ministry have brought them to Berkeley, CA; Kansas City, KS; Columbus, OH; and now the First Universalist Church of Rochester, where they were called to be the settled minister in 2018.
Rev. Lane-Mairead is active in addiction recovery and co-edited the collection This Day in Recovery from Skinner House Books, which won a Silver Nautilus Prize in 2022. They are committed to justice, specifically in the areas of racial justice, LGBTQIA2S+ rights, and houselessness advocacy in downtown Rochester, NY. They openly identify as genderqueer and queer of all kinds, and are working on an upcoming collection of Queer Theyology of Unitarian Universalism and beyond.
In their free time, Rev. Lane-Mairead enjoys hiking in the beauties of Western New York, spending time with their two cats, listening to live music, and cooking all kinds of vegan food. They live alone with these two incredibly playful cats in the 19th Ward neighborhood of Rochester, NY.
