Rev. Kimberly Quinn Johnson

Board Member

Rev. Kimberly Quinn Johnson serves as minister of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the South Fork on Long Island in Bridgehampton, NY. Her ministry and her preaching encourage us to connect to our most deeply held values so that we can live our faith in the world.

Before her ministry, Kimberly worked as a union organizer with the United Auto Workers (UAW). She continues to teach Women’s and Gender Studies at New Jersey City University.

The core of Kimberly’s ministry is faith formation—creating spaces and experiences for people to connect to the sacred and to express that connection in the world. In her teaching, Kimberly employs the theory and practice of popular education, facilitating the exchange and exploration of our knowledge and experiences to encourage deeper understanding and grounding for action.

Kimberly serves on the Organizing Collective Board for Black Lives of Unitarian Universalism (BLUU). She also serves on the board of the UU Women’s Federation (UUWF).  She serves as vice president of the St. Lawrence Foundation for Theological Education. And is a member of the Steering Committee for UU Class Conversations, and the UUA Appointments Committee. She gets to work at the nexus of faith formation, youth ministry, and racial justice as a Program Leader with the UU College of Social Justice.
