In past ministries, she has served as a religious educator for a number of congregations, including All Souls Indy in Indianapolis, IN; Accotink UU Church in Burke, VA; and Westminster Unitarian Church in East Greenwich, RI.

Prior to her time in congregational religious education, Sarah Gettie served as the Team Leader Chaplain at Methodist Hospital in Omaha, NE, where she was an active member of the Palliative Care Team and Ethics Committee, often leading clinical staff trainings.

Sarah Gettie completed her MDiv from Meadville Lombard Theological School and afterward, completed five units of Clinical Pastoral Education.
