Amara Oden

Pastor in the United Church of Christ seeking a settled call in the Pacific Northwest.

Hi there! A little bit about me.

I'm ordained pending call in the Pacific Northwest Conference of the UCC, and have an MDiv from the School of Theology and Ministry at Seattle University.

I'm seeking a full-time call in parish ministry in the Puget Sound area.

I preach and lead worship

I'm available to preach and preside at your in-person or online service.

I have a few you can link through to here.

Many of my sermons were preached at Magnolia UCC where I interned for eight months, or Prospect UCC where I provided sabbatical coverage for three months.

I facilitate workshops and retreats

I am skilled in group facilitation and consensus-building. Trained in Technology of Participation, I bring my own active and embodied style to guide groups through tough conversations.

I'm also available to facilitate your church retreat or board council visioning.
