Why I Joined
A liberal religious voice in the Central Valley since 1953.
Rev. Joseph Cherry was our Interim Minister from January 15, 2012 until June 15, 2014. He is now a part of our fellowship's history.
Rev. Joe was born and raised in Metro-Detroit. As a young adult he moved to Chicago, where he discovered Unitarian Universalism, riding public transportation and playing softball. Rev. Joe went to seminary in Chicago, served a summer ministry in the UK, and did his internship student minister year in Vancouver, British Columbia.
He has been a Chaplain resident at Saint Francis Hospital in San Francisco. He has been an active UU for many years and made a mid-life transition to become a UU minister. He was ordained by the First Unitarian Society of Chicago May 14, 2011. His partner, Rev. Denis L. Paul, is also a UU minister.
