Special Performance:

Rev Amy Carol Webb, Folk Singer and Acoustic Guitarist.

Reverend Amy knew since she was a child in Oklahoma that she wanted to preach and sing when she grew up. After graduating from Oklahoma Christian University with a BSE in Performing Arts, followed by careers in marketing, music education and music performance and production including nine independent CD’s -- Amy’s long and winding spiritual road led her to Unitarian Universalism. Here she found her full voice and finally answered her heart’s young wish, and enrolled in seminary. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from Andover Newton Theological School, and was ordained in May 2011 by the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Boca Raton, where she had served for three years as a Student Minister, then Intern Minister.

Rev. Amy continues to minister through music, seeking to expand and explore the humanity in divinity and the divinity in humanity with emphasis on developing new Unitarian Universalist music. She is the composer of the justice anthem “STAND!” which debuted at the 2010 Unitarian Universalist Association's General Assembly and has been taken up by UU congregations and justice champions around the world, as well as the call to action “Tell Somebody!” released at the UUA General Assembly 2012.

As an educator, Reverend Amy has taught music, creative writing, songwriting and life-skills development from the halls of the University of Miami and Dartmouth to the cells of maximum security women’s prisons in Broward and Homestead. As a performer she’s played from the Kennedy Center to some of the most hallowed festival stages. She is a Charter Fellow of Noel Paul Stookey’s “Music2Life Foundation,” working for justice through music by nurturing the next generation of music activists. “The music is a ministry of itself,” she says. “And it led me to the ministry life I now cherish.”

Reverend Amy lives with her spouse of 18 years, Brooke Bell. They have two grown sons, Graham, who lives in New York City, and Alexander who lives in Basel, Switzerland with their precious granddaughter, Ava.

“Ministry,” Amy says, “is at its depth a continuing conversation among our authentic, imperfect selves within the shelter of compassion, joy and faith that we may heed the call to be transformed and transform our world.”
