Our Ministry Team
Rev. Jordinn Nelson Long, Lead Minister
Worship, Staff Supervision and Organizational Management, Spiritual/Pastoral Care, Rituals and Rites of Passage, and Faith Formation
Rev. Jordinn is a native of Cheyenne, Wyoming, and was called to UUSF by way of the Kansas City area, where she and her family spent the last 15 years. She is a graduate of Meadville Lombard Theological School, our Unitarian Universalist seminary in Chicago. Before beginning seminary, Jordinn served two public school districts and two private schools as a teacher, and has taught kindergartners, infants and toddlers (and their parents) as a parent educator, and third and fourth grade special education.
Jordinn also holds a J.D. from the University of Utah’s SJ Quinney College of Law. While she knew early in law school that lawyering was not her particular calling, she finds the training in mediation, contract law, and civil rights to have been invaluable preparation for the Unitarian Universalist Ministry.
In our movement, Jordinn serves on the Executive Committee of the Ministerial Leadership Network, an initiative of the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC), which is the direct-assistance human rights arm of our denomination. She has also served as a Ministry Fellow for the Church of the Larger Fellowship (our largest congregation; an international church without walls), and completed her formational training in Kansas City, Missouri, at All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church.
Jordinn’s husband Craig works in software development in Boston. Together, they have two sons, both students at Wood Elementary School in Fairhaven.
