Our Current Minister


Rev. Ernie Mills completed a BA in Philosophy from the University of North Carolina at Asheville, a Master of Religious Education from Duke Divinity School, and a Master of Divinity from the Candler School of Theology at Emory University. He previously served as minister to the Unitarian Universalists of Transylvania County.

Due to family obligations, his schedule will only allow Rev. Ernie Mills to continue on an as-needed basis after January. Many thanks to Ernie for providing such inspirational and thought-provoking sermons over the past year. We look forward to him returning from time to time. Starting in February, he will be passing the torch to Lyndon Harris to provide the ongoing pulpit support for our congregation.

A forgiveness coach, peace activist, and an inspirational and motivational speaker, Lyndon Harris spoke to our fellowship about his work with forgiveness in November 2018. He has also spoken at numerous conferences across the United States and around the world. His work at Ground Zero as priest-in-charge of Saint Paul’s Chapel (located directly across from the World Trade Center in New York City) has been written about widely, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, Time Magazine, The Christian Science Monitor, and Die Zeit (Hamburg). He now lives in Zirconia, NC, with his wife, Maria Lund, and will be conducting the first six sessions of our community outreach project, Community Coffee Conversations.
