UU Casper History
With roots in Casper dating to the 1950s and in continuous operation since the early 1980s, a group of religiously liberal folks have gathered together to ask questions, learn, grow spiritually, and to make a difference for good.
Through the years, this group of Unitarian Universalists has gathered in homes, rented rooms, and rented space in a church. Since 2015, we’ve had our own home; a welcoming home in the heart of Casper that conveys the acceptance of all.
Throughout most of its history, UU Casper has been guided by its lay leaders. UU Casper’s first minister, Jug Brandjord, retired in 2007. In 2011, UU Casper began a shared-ministry with Rev. Leslie Kee, who speaks on the first Sunday of each month, and on the second Sunday of the months September through May. Rev. Kee also provides pastoral care, manages the Care Circle, and administers the Minister’s Discretionary Fund.
