Young Adult and Campus Ministry Coordinator – Orion Day
Orion Day first attended the UUCB briefly in 2014, and returned in February 2016 in a time of need, where he found a welcoming congregation with inspiring leadership and compassionate members. In July 2016, he was offered and accepted the long-vacant Young Adult and Campus Ministry Coordinator position.
