The Sedona Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is pleased and excited to welcome their first Intern Minister (Minister-in-Training), Anthony Johnson, who is currently a third year seminary student at Starr King School for the Ministry in Berkeley, California.
Mr. Johnson is Mississippi born and Chicago bred and holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Radio-TV-Film and a Masters Degree in Human Learning and Development. He brings a wealth of professional and personal experience to his current Ministerial Internship with the Sedona UU Fellowship. His dynamic background includes work as a United States Army Officer who was part of the team to implement the Instruction System Design model at the U.S. Army General Staff College and throughout the U.S. Army. He has worked as a Writer/Producer of military training films and interactive videodiscs. He has written and produced for the likes of IBM, Motorola, The World Bank and Greenpeace, Levi’s 501 Jeans and Bud-Lite “Give-me-a Light” series of television spots. It was during this time that he became one of the country’s leading producers of 3-D animation and was awarded a Silver Medal by The New York International that recognized his producer skills with Computer Animation.
His varied experience also includes mentoring and working with inmates at the Pontiac State Prison in Illinois. He is a Spiritual Counselor, writer, producer, poet, teacher, husband and fa-ther. Anthony is the founder of “Multikulti”, an organization dedicated to dialogue among cul-tures, religions and across the racial divide. His clear and honest voice speaks to the unity of all peoples and he promotes acceptance of one another and encouragement in each person’s search for truth and meaning in their own lives. Mr. Johnson will be delivering sermons each month as part of his journey to become a future minister.
The Sedona Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is a welcoming congregation and is a vibrant and vocal voice in the Sedona community, championing the dignity and inclusion of all people with justice, equity and compassion in human relations.
The UU Fellowship invites the community to join them in welcoming Anthony Johnson and his wife, Lydia to the religious landscape of Sedona and the Verde Valley, where one can live their values aloud, not alone. Services are held on Sunday from September to May at 10 am in the sanctuary at the Jewish Community of Sedona and the Verde Valley, 100 Meadowlark Drive, Sedona.
