Our new membership coordinator goes by two names: Austin Kelly Mitchell and Audrey Gale Hall. You can use “Austin” and “Audrey” interchangeably, or use the pronouns “they/them/theirs” or “she/her/hers.” They are also very open to nicknames.
Audrey is a senior at the University of Houston, studying the Hebrew Bible and queer theology, and graduating with honors in May 2022. She hopes to spend her life ministering in the LGBTQ+ community as an ordained Unitarian Universalist. Currently, though, they are content with being a cat mom.
Audrey comes from Southern evangelicals and country folks, and is descended from early English colonists. Her faith practice is informed by Celtic paganism, Christian mysticism, and the spiritual practices of transgender communities.
Above all else, Austin wants you to know how excited they are to get to know our congregation! Look out for more from them soon.
