Devin Shmueli

Devin Shmueli (he/him/his) has a passion for learning from and listening to the wisdom of people of all ages and stages because he believes that even the smallest child can help serve as a guide on the path of responsible meaning-making! Devin sees himself as a co-creator of safe, brave spaces where he can provide people the tools to explore their faith and spirituality. As Director of Family and Community Ministries, he can do so while integrating newcomers, members, and friends into the congregation in a holistic way ensuring they can learn and grow within the whole life and ministry of FUUSN.

Devin is originally from Raleigh, North Carolina, and attended the University of North Carolina in Greensboro where he received a Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies. In 2017, Devin graduated with a Master of Divinity from Andover Newton Theological School with a dual focus in social justice and ethics as well as pastoral care and counseling. He currently serves as the President of New England Liberal Religious Educators Association (LREDA), and he is a member of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Membership Professionals (UUAMP).

Outside of work, Devin is a CrossFit athlete, and enjoys visiting with friends in and out of town, exploring new restaurants, hiking locally and, especially, in the Berkshires, and throwing pottery on the wheel. He is also dabbling in woodworking.
