Rev. Amy Frenze is an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ who has served Hope Church since August, 2012. She is a graduate of Andover Newton Theological School (Class of 2010) and comes with previous experience as an interim minister. She has served the United Church of Christ in several settings: nationally as a Synod delegate, at the Conference setting in Rhode Island, and in the local church where she focuses her energy currently. She continues to serve the RI Conference United Church of Christ as a member of the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender & Queer Task Force.
Rev. Amy believes the Good News of Jesus should be good news to the world today. She lives this aspect of her faith by advocating for a number of issues on state and local levels. She is an active member of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, serves on the steering committee for the RI Coalition for Reproductive Justice, and also on the Bradley Hospital Ethics Committee. She does extensive outreach to members of Alcoholics Anonymous and Al-Anon, which meet at Hope Church 15+ meetings a week.
Rev. Amy has three children and three dogs – most of which are well behaved. She loves loud laughs, crazy shoes and sea kayaking with the same irrational enthusiasm with which she dislikes turnip!
