Rev. Jeffrey Brown Named Minister Emeritus at Unitarian Congregation in Mississauga

On Sunday June 4, 2017, at the Annual General Meeting, the Unitarian Congregation in Mississauga voted to designate its former pastor, Rev. Jeffrey Brown, Minister Emeritus. With a near unanimous vote, the motion passed easily. The title of “Minister Emeritus” is granted to honour long service to a congregation. It expresses the congregation’s appreciation for the Minister’s dedication.

Brown served Mississauga’s congregation for 16 years, the longest of any minister in its 62-year history, retiring in 2011. In a letter to Brown announcing the designation, UCM”s Board of Trustees cited  his steady ministry during extensive renovations to the building, and thanked him for his efforts building a thriving congregation known for its support of the Mississauga Food Bank, Pathway Housing and the Interfaith Council of Peel.

Brown will be invited to a Sunday service this fall to be recognized and to preach. His name will also be added to the church’s letterhead and to its website in recognition of his service.
