Lillian is a member of the Congregational Life Staff in our Southern Region, whose team mission is to bring more hope, love, justice, courage, and joy into the world. The Southern Region Congregational Life Staff serve the Unitarian Universalist faith by fostering congregational health and vitality.

Lillian came to Unitarian Universalism as a youth and holds a special place in her heart for youth ministry. She was fortunate to be engaged in campus ministry as an undergrad and has worked to pay this gift forward by developing and supporting young adult leadership at the congregational level. Her graduate work in nonprofit management led Lillian from an early career in domestic violence advocacy to service to our faith as a religious professional.

She served the First Unitarian Church of Dallas for over a decade; directing programs for youth, developing new young adult-centered initiatives and leading adult religious education. She worked on the team developing Faith Forward: From Visitor to Leader and directed the first congregational implementation of this faith development path. In her final year at First Dallas, she collaborated with Rev. Thandeka to incorporate elements of Thandeka’s Love Beyond Belief program, featuring transformative small group spiritual practice, into faith development offerings.

As a member of the Congregational Life Staff, Lillian collaborated with Cameron Young to develop the Leadership Experience (LE) Primer Series, equipping newer leaders with the foundational knowledge needed for effective congregational leadership. Lillian is a trained Renaissance Program Facilitator and has co-led the Administration as Leadership and Dimensions of Faith Development Modules.

Lillian resides with her family in Dallas, Texas and is honored to serve our Southern Region and wider faith.
