Executive Minister

Rev. Lee Paczulla (She/Her)

I came to WellSprings right after graduating from Divinity School in 2013, and knew then – and now – that this is one of the most fascinating spiritual communities I’ve ever encountered. It’s a place where I can grow spiritually as a minister, right alongside my congregants. It’s a community of people who are wonderfully open-hearted, original, purposeful, and connected. This congregation is doing something new and different with Unitarian Universalism, and my call to ministry has always been around…
YouthSpirit Director

Carol Breslin (She/Her)

Every week I can’t believe this is part of my job – I get to work with kids, do crafts, share stories, exchange ideas, and play games each Sunday morning. I have the privilege of working with a wonderful group of staff and volunteers, essential to bringing our nursery, YouthSpirit and teen programs to our families year-round, and am additionally blessed to work alongside my amazing WellSprings colleagues. But most importantly, I am grateful for the opportunity to plant a…
Membership & Communications Coordinator

Jessica Heichel (She/Her)

Hi! I’m Jessica. My job here is to tell WellSprings’ story – both internally to our members and friends, and externally to our visitors, our partners, and to folks who just want to know what we’re all about. I handle the communications for our congregation, so if you found us as the result of a social media post, a podcast, or even a web search, I’m very glad to hear that. Personally, I had never even heard of Unitarian Universalism…

Hi, I’m Jaden! My pronouns are they/them. I’m currently a senior looking to go into animation and computer science after high school.

Minister Emeritus

Rev. Ken Beldon (He/Him)

My first day at WellSprings was the first day of WellSprings. I’ve been here since before the congregation had a name. You could say I’ve had a meaningful, fulfilling, enriching ministry here. But that wouldn’t quite be the truth. I’ve had meaningful, fulfilling, enriching ministries at WellSprings. Different seasons, different roles, all valuable. And that’s what I love about this place. Spiritual community can be a midwife birthing us into wholeness and well-being through the changes in our lives. WellSprings is a remarkable community…
