Reverend Jennifer Innis
Here’s Our Candidate!
The Minister Search Committee is pleased to announce that our candidate to be the next settled minister at our church is… The Reverend Jennifer Innis!
Reverend Jennifer currently serves as Interim Co-Minister of the Unitarian Universalist Society of Geneva, Illinois. A lifelong, third-generation Unitarian Universalist, she grew up in Massachusetts, where her family attended a UU church that was originally Universalist.
In 1994 she received a BA in Theater from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. She received a Master of Divinity degree from Harvard Theological Seminary in 1998. Her formation as a minister included two internships, one at First Church in Boston and the other at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Belfast, Maine. Her church of origin, the Unitarian Universalist Church of Worcester, Massachusetts, ordained her in March 2000.
Since being credentialed by the Unitarian Universalist Association in 1999, Reverend Jennifer has held ministerial positions with eight congregations in Massachusetts, Alabama, South Carolina, Texas, and Illinois. Her experience includes serving not only as a minister and an interim minister, but also as a Director of Religious Education and an Assistant Minister for Lifespan Religious Exploration. In 2018 she became the Director for Spirit Play, a story-based program for young children in Unitarian Universalism.
Reverend Jennifer currently lives in St. Charles, Illinois, where she enjoys life with her spouse, the Reverend Patrick Price, and their two children. Nate is 11 years old and just moved up from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts. He loves video games and Dungeons and Dragons. Abby is 8 and would take care of every animal in the world if she could. Faith development at home includes the essential teachings of Star Trek, Star Wars, Doctor Who, and Harry Potter.
