Reverend Evan Keely
In August of 2015, the Rev. Evan Keely began his service as the Interim Minister at PBUUC. Rev. Keely has previously served Unitarian Universalist Congregations in Massachusetts, Texas, New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania, six of them as an interim minister. His most recent work was two years as Interim Senior Minister of Main Line Unitarian Church in Devon, PA; prior to that he served at Cedar Lane in Bethesda.
Raised on Long Island, New York in a UU home (his parents remain active at the UU Fellowship of Huntington), Evan is a graduate of Harvard Divinity School and lives in Reston, Virginia with his family. His wife Sarah is a psychotherapist, and they have two sons. Evan and Sarah met in the mid-'90s when they were active members of a UU church, the First Parish in Cambridge, Massachusetts. They both take great joy in this liberal faith. Evan's family are active members at the UU Congregation of Fairfax.
Evan has a bachelor's degree in Music History from Boston University. He enjoys composing and arranging music and has been known to do some singing. He also describes himself as "an avid (but not very good) chess player."
PBUUC plans to have an Interim Minister from August of 2015 through July of 2017. In accordance with standard practice for UUA congregations (as well as in many other denominations), Rev. Keely's contract ends in July of '16; it can be renewed for the second year if Evan and the Board agree that that is in PBUUC's best interests.
