Week Five July 23 - 30, 2016

The Rev. Alexis Fuller-Wright

Alexis, pastor of the First Congregational Church of Farmington, Maine cherishes the church as the gathered body of Christ, fumbling together      towards God’s vision for a flourishing world.  She particularly loves crafting sensory-rich worship services and helping communities explore new, relevant ways of living out their relationship with God. The heart of her call to ministry is shaping faith communities where people are extravagantly welcomed, deeply nourished, and formed by God to transform the world.  

Alexis serves the wider church as the co-moderator of the National Planning Team for the 2030 Network, an organization which strengthens, sustains, and mobilizes UCC ministers in their 20s and 30s. She is also a member of the UCC’s Next Generation Leadership Initiative, a program training young clergy to lead transformational ministries.  

Outside of the church, Alexis loves cooking, spending time near the water, and exploring new areas in her adopted state of Maine.  She will be joined at Chautauqua by her wife, Liz, who is an editor for the Christian Science  Monitor, and their baby girl, Nora.
