    Kristi Denham

    Our pastor, The Rev. Kristi Denham, is a graduate of San Francisco Theological Seminary and ordained in the Northern California Nevada Conference of the United Church of Christ. She has served our church since 1999 when she responded to our call for a minister to lead us into the 21st Century. She is a trained liturgical dancer and writes professionally for United Press International’s Religion and Spirituality web site. She loves creating surprising and thought provoking worship experiences. Biblical scholarship is central to her understanding of her preaching gifts. She is currently working on a doctor of ministry degree in The Pastor as Spiritual Leader program at San Francisco Theological Seminary while she continues to lead our congregation. She has a passion for working with children and youth and a lifetime of commitment to social justice, especially racial and economic justice that mirrors our community's sense of service. Community, service and celebrations of our life in the Spirit are central to her sense of ministry and call. Come and meet Kristi, whose spirit is as captivating as her thick, red hair.
