In her ministry, Rev. Kim seeks to create a place of depth and spiritual maturity, where joys and sorrows are brought into all parts of congregational life, and where connection and relationship create the faith that draws us out into the world.
Before coming to UUCWC, Kim served as the Minister for Congregational Life at the Unitarian Church in Summit, NJ. Kim has also served as the ministerial intern at The UU Congregation of Annapolis, MD and the Channing Murray Campus Ministry in Urbana, IL. She received her Master of Divinity at Union Theological Seminary in New York City in 2009 and was raised in the North Fork Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Jamesport NY, the same body who ordained her in 2011.
Kim is a leader in our denomination, having recently served as the Vice President of the Metro NY Ministers Association. She has also served as a student liaison to the Ministerial Fellowship Committee, the body that credentials our candidates for ministry.
Kim and Tara Wildszewski had a civil union and wedding in March of 2013, and then got an official marriage license in October 2013 after a change in NJ law permitted them to do so. Tara is a programmer/analyst at a social policy firm. While she works on a variety of projects, most of her work focuses on education and child welfare policy. Their sons, Tobias and Malcolm, and dog, Wrigley (yes, after the Cubs’ field!), keep them happy, busy, and discovering the world in new ways.
