Our Minister & Staff

Rev. Allen Harden

Minister

I am truly thrilled to return to DeKalb to serve as your Minister for the coming year. During the two years of my internship, I came to know this as a very special congregation, and I am eager to work with you as we discover our way towards your future. I am confident that we can sustain the vibrant and dynamic liberal religious presence that is so needed in our community, and in this time. I am truly excited at the prospect of re-engaging with all of you that I have known, and getting to know the rest of you.

Rev. Linda Slabon

Minister Emerita

On July 16, 2017, Rev. Linda Slabon retired after 26 years as minister at UUFD. On that same day, the congregation bestowed upon Rev. Linda the title of "Minister Emerita," in honor of her many years of faithful service to our congregation. We are grateful for Rev. Linda, and to her spouse Toni Tollerud, who served for 26 years as our music director, for their leadership and dedication over these many years.

Toni Tollerud

Founding Music Director (Retired)

The choir and congregation are so grateful to Toni Tollerud for founding UUFD's choir and music program and leading it with such care for so many years. In the words of current music director Bonnie Anderson: "Toni built something extraordinary for this congregation, and I will do my best to continue that tradition."
