Jess Bors – Director of Religious Education

Jess2018

The call to the ministry of religious education came when a beloved friend and fellow UU passed away. She took this as a sign to do what spoke to her heart.  Jess enrolled in a Renaissance module in Teacher Recruitment in New England that spring and so began the journey.  Since that first 15 hour course she has gone on to complete over 150 hours of training as a professional religious educator and is currently enrolled in the UUA credentialing program.  2018-2019 begins her second year serving Buxmont.  Jess previously served as the Director of Lifespan Faith Development for Thomas Paine UU Fellowship.

John Hook – Music Director

JohnHook

John Hook founded the BuxMont Choir in 1990. John is retired from his ’day job’ as a chemist with The Dow Chemical Company (formerly Rohm and Haas) where he developed new products which helped significantly lower the environmental impact of latex paints and other coatings while enhancing performance. John became interested in folk music at a Methodist youth camp, traded a never-well-played trombone for a guitar, and found his true musical love: helping groups make music together. In college he was inspired by Bryan Bowers to learn melodic-style autoharp. John joined BuxMont in the early 1980s and helped its Religious Education program as a teacher, song leader, and youth advisor. At the national level, John served on the board of the Unitarian Universalist Musicians’ Network (UUMN) and helped to develop the UUA’s Music Leadership Credentialing Program. John has studied voice with Robert Wallace and John Kennedy at the Settlement Music School.
