Our Minister

Rev. Judy Tomlinson

The UUCA Board of Trustees is delighted to announce that Rev. Judy Tomlinson will be our new contract minister beginning this September.

Rev. Judy Tomlinson arrived at the doors of the Unitarian Society of Orange County, now UUCA, on April 15, 1975, her first introduction to Unitarian Universalism. She was a member here for 10 years taking on many leadership positions. This congregation sent her to her first UU religious education training, a Renaissance Module in Santa Barbara, that set her on her path to professional religious leadership. She has served four UU congregations: Orange Coast and Santa Monica as Director of Religious Education, UU Congregation at Montclair, NJ as Minister of RE and Associate Minister, and the UU Church of Long Beach as Bridge Minister. Rev. Judy graduated with her MDiv from Claremont School of Theology in 2000 and was ordained in 2001. She is married to Rob Godron and together they live in Huntington Beach. Rev. Judy is thrilled to be returning to UUCA as your minister!
