Rev Eric Meter - Associate Minister


Eric Meter has been with First UU since May 2008. Born and raised Unitarian Universalist, Eric comes to our congregation after ten years of ministry in northern California and an interim ministry year in upstate New York.

After completing his Masters of Divinity at Starr King School for the Ministry in Berkeley, and then a ministerial internship under the late Rev. Dan O’Neal at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Santa Rosa, Eric served the Unitarian Universalist Church in Livermore, California until 2007. During his tenure there he was president of the local Interfaith Council, and co-chaired a marketing campaign of 17 UU congregations the San Francisco Bay area. Other highlights of his ministry there included travelling twice to visit his congregation’s partner church in Transylvania, leading a youth service trip to New Orleans to help in the post-Katrina rebuilding efforts and preaching in Soweto during a sabbatical month in South Africa. In 2007 Eric received the Distinguished Service Award from the Pacific Central District of the UUA.

Prior to answering the call to ministry, Eric was a VISTA volunteer with the Minnesota Literacy Council in St. Paul, MN and also worked with the Twin Cities’ Southeast Asian refugee and immigrant communities. During that time, Eric was also active in both local and district UU young adult programming.
