Rev Eric Posa

Minister, Reverend Eric Posa

Rev. Eric Posa returned to serve as Minister of the Denton UU Fellowship in August 2022. But this was not his first time in Denton. A native of the Dallas/Fort Worth area, Rev. Eric first moved to Denton in 1990, to begin undergraduate studies at the University of North Texas. He earned his B.A. and M.A. in philosophy from UNT, then his seminary degree from Texas Christian University’s Brite Divinity School. This congregation – his “home church” before and during seminary – ordained Rev. Eric to ministry in June 2005. In his 17 years of ministry before coming back to Denton, Rev. Eric served as a hospital chaplain, settled minister in College Station, TX, and several interim ministries in various states. He also enjoys getting out to hear live music, and spending time with his spouse, Suzi.

Acting Lead Teacher, Sierra Merenda

Hello! I’m Sierra Merenda and I have been working with children for 5 years. Currently, I am pursuing a MS in Child Life from TWU. While I haven’t been with the church long, I already feel incredibly welcomed. I’m looking forward to getting to know everyone better, especially the kids! I love to encourage reading, listening, and empathy. My favorite children’s book is A Bad Case of Stripes and I love to play any game with a ball, as well as most popular video games. I hope that we’re all ready to “Take chances, make mistakes, and get messy!”  To contact Sierra, email youth@dentonuuf.org.
