Rev. Susan was born in Riverside, CA, yet her family moved to Arizona when she was young. She has spent most of her life in AZ. Her biography is impressive. A graduate of Arizona State University and Starr King School for the Ministry, Susan sings, she writes books, poems and music, is a social justice advocate, speaks Spanish, is a published author and much more.
Susan has served as parish minister in a few different congregations for nearly twenty-five years. We welcome her as an Interim minister for the next two years; preparing MVUUC for the process of finding a settled minister at the end of her two-year interim.
Susan has a lot of extra special experience as she learned about Unitarian Universalism from birth. Susan’s dad, Rev. Ray Manker, Emeritus, was the key inspiration and leader in the creation of Unitarian Universalist Retreat Center, Camp de Benneville Pines.
Susan will present her first Worship Service on Sunday, August 21, 2016. Please welcome Reverend Susan when you see her at church.
