Tony Fisher was ordained into the Unitarian Universalist ministry on June 15, 2014 after a successful 35-year career in educational publishing. Though the decision to actively pursue parish ministry came in 2009 at the age of fifty-eight, Tony has imagined doing this work since he was sixteen when inspired by the minister of his home church in Lexington, Massachusetts. And while his understanding of the depth and possibilities of congregational ministry changed over the years of active lay ministry, the dream of responding to that original call did not. He received his Masters of Divinity from Andover Newton Theological School and served as Intern Minister at First Parish in Concord, Massachusetts from 2012 to 2014.
Tony also serves as a Program Leader for the Unitarian Universalist College of Social Justice, an organization whose mission is to help Unitarian Universalists deepen and sustain the work of justice within their congregations and communities.
Tony and his wife, Ann, also an active Unitarian Universalist, are the proud parents of two wonderful young men: Adam, who is a licensed Social Worker, and Nate, who is pursuing a career in theater.
Tony sees great potential in the Unitarian Universalist movement as a catalyst for change in the world. But it is the balance of the pastoral role and the prophetic mission expressed within the context of a gathered community that called him to service.
