Meet our Ministers
Ministers at First Unitarian Society are selected by formal vote of the congregation. At First Unitarian Society, we encourage participation from both the pulpit and the pew. Even as the local institution calls its ministers, so does it alone possess authority to terminate their service. For his or her part, the UU minister is a "free agent" whose tenure is indefinite and contingent upon personal and congregational satisfaction.

The Rev. Michael A. Schuler was called as Parish Minister to First Society in the spring of 1988. He holds master and Ph.D. degrees in religion and the humanities, and previously served congregations in Iowa and New York.  More >>

Ministerial Intern Eric Severson comes to FUS from La Crosse, Wisconsin. He has returned to the path of professional ministry after an 18-year hiatus. Eric received a Master of Divinity degree in 1998 from Meadville Lombard Theological School and a Bachelor of Science degree in agricultural journalism at UW-Madison in 1986. Prior careers included editing fantasy fiction novels, creating marketing material for a Catholic education publisher, and serving as publications director for a community theatre. Eric has come to appreciate the brevity of life and approaches it with deep gratitude. His ministry stems from a goal of experiencing unity in diversity and a mission to help people transform their lives and build a better world.
