Rev. David Breeden, Senior Minister

Rev. Dr. David Breeden says, “I am deeply honored and humbled to serve as Senior Minister at First Unitarian Society (FUS) of Minneapolis. I became a Humanist at a small Unitarian Universalist fellowship while I was in college. For years, I read the writings of FUS ministers, never dreaming I would get a chance to be part of the FUS story.”

Rev. David began his service as Senior Minister in August 2013. He holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from The Iowa Writers’ Workshop, a PhD from the Center for Writers at the University of Southern Mississippi, and a Master of Divinity from Meadville Lombard Theological School in Chicago.

Rev. David is a published poet and author and a social activist. He is committed to asserting the historic role of Humanism within the Unitarian Universalist tradition and getting the good news of Humanism out to the world. Prior to his service at FUS, Rev. David was the first settled minister at the Minnesota Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Bloomington, Minnesota.
