Welcome Rev. AJ van Tine

Our new Assistant Minister!

We’re thrilled to announce the selection of Rev. AJ van Tine as our incoming Assistant Minister! Rev. AJ and his wife Ada will move to Rochester this summer, and Rev. AJ joins our team in mid-July. AJ is a lifelong Unitarian Universalist, as is his wife, Ada. They both grew up in Virginia, where AJ was a leader in youth, young adult, and campus ministry before attending Seminary. AJ has a deep passion for religious community and a strong commitment to Unitarian Universalist values and theology. He understands his ministerial calling as a call to sustain liberal religious spaces while deeply engaging in world religious traditions and philosophy. He identifies theologically as a Transcendental Pluralist.
