First Universalist Church Pledge Team 2017–2018
Zack Steven, Pledge Team Chair, is a technology entrepreneur with a passion for good design, big ideas and strong communities. He and his wife Shannon have been attending First Universalist for about 6 years with their sons Calvin (13) and Everett (10). They live near 54th & Xerxes and were previously members of Unity Church-Unitarian in St. Paul, where Zack served as Chair of the Board of Trustees.
For Jeanne Guignon, becoming a member at First Universalist in 2010 has been a true gift. As a clinical social worker, and life-long spiritual seeker, it has been so fulfilling to find this faith community that encourages spiritual exploration along with social, racial, and environmental justice, in a loving – and often enjoyable – way. After participating in community circles, Wellspring, racial justice trainings/actions, and much more, Jeanne decided it was time to “give back” in a bigger way, both financially and in service. Joining the Pledge Team in August 2015 has been the right choice for her to be able to do this.
Jane Baudelaire joined First Universalist in 2011 and has been a very active member in the church community. Humbled to be called to serve, Jane currently leads two Soul Matters groups and has worked on several fundraising events over the years such as The Great Gathering, Winter Warm-Up and Love Rocks. Jane is excited to bring her passion for the church’s vision and values combined with her organizational and relationship building talents to the Pledge Team. She is a Wisconsin transplant and currently resides in the Armatage neighborhood of Southwest Minneapolis.
