A stone church with a wooden door and a copper lantern

Chris Scheller

Director of Mindfulness and Devotional Programs

First Parish Church in Weston carries a rich heritage of embodied faith and action grounded not only in the Bible, but also open to dialogue with the living wisdom from within ourselves, all the great religious traditions around the world, and of course from the insights found through scientific inquiry.  Truly, whoever you are, and whatever you believe, you are welcome here.

I bring a deep love of developing programming for all ages. This calling led me to attend Harvard Divinity School, where I graduated in 2009 with a Master of Divinity degree. I have more than ten years of experience in faith development ministry for all ages. I completed my ministry training internship at the Unitarian Church of Sharon with a focus on religious education and lifespan learning. I also led the Youth Group at the Unitarian Church of Sharon for five years, and was leading religious education at the Groton and Karuna Schools at the same time, as well as teaching meditation at Babson College. Most recently before coming to First Parish Church in Weston, I led the Sunday morning, youth group, and family religious education programming at First Parish Sudbury.
