Ministerial Staff

Rev. Anthony David Makar, Senior Minister
Phone: 404-634-5134 x214

 As Senior Minister, I partner with UUCA’s Board of Trustees in setting the vision for the congregation; creating annual plans for how UUCA will use our resources to expand the circle of Love and Justice.
An important part of how I do this is by creating inspirational worship experiences and preaching powerful sermons. I also represent UUCA in the larger community, as a voice of Unitarian Universalist conscience and commitment.
Join us for worship service every Sunday at 10:00 am.



 Taryn Strauss, Intern Minister


Phone: 404-634-5134 x228

 My name is Taryn and I am here to coordinate Pastoral Care services for you and your family. If you are in need of pastoral care or would like to be connected to one of our trained Lay Ministers, please contact me! I also supervise the coordination of our Lifespan Religious Education program, where we learn about a diversity of religious beliefs and histories, explore our own Unitarian Universalist faith, and engage in the journey towards spiritual formation. As one of the worship leaders, I also preach, teach, and lead rites of passage ceremonies for the community.

Volunteer Program Staff

Mary Andrus-Overley, Inclusivity Coordinator

UUCA is working toward certification by the Unitarian Universalist Association as an Accessibility & Inclusion Ministry (AIM) Congregation. If you have difficulty participating in congregational life because our physical environment or program practices do not adequately accommodate your disability or that of your child(ren), our local AIM Team and I will work with you to find an effective and dignified solution! As a member of the Volunteer Staff, I work from home on a flexible schedule.

Office Volunteers
Our UUCA “front desk/office reception” is staffed by volunteers from our congregation. We answer phones, greet people arriving and provide support to the Ministerial and Office staff in the day to day operations of UUCA.

Whether it is questions about meeting times, directions, or whom to call about a specific matter, we will probably be the first person you talk to. We try to have an Office Volunteer on duty Monday thru Friday, from 10 am to 5pm to welcome you to the building or answer your call. We are always happy to help you in any way we can.

If you’re interested in becoming an Office Volunteer, please reach to use at EMAIL. We would be happy to have you.
