Installation of Rev. Thomas Mitchell

April 21 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

The Commission on Ministry and Central Congregational UCC in Atlanta invites you to the installation of Rev. Thomas Mitchell on Sunday, April 22, 2024 at 11:00 am at Central Congregational (2676 Clairmont Road, Atlanta, GA 30329). You are invited to join onsite or online. You can join the livestream here (https://www.central-ucc.org/sundays-at-central/).

Thomas A. Mitchell is from Knoxville, TN. He’s been active in the United Church of Christ since he joined the youth group at Church of the Savior when he was 12 years old. Thomas holds an M.Div from Harvard Divinity School and was ordained in the fall of 2022. He began his call as Associate Minister at Central Congregational UCC in that same year. In addition to his church role, Thomas serves as the Vice-Chair of the General Synod Nominating Committee, which solicits and nominates candidates to serve on the UCC Board of Directors, and as moderator/assistant moderator of General Synod.

Thomas is very passionate about “meaning-making,” by helping people and communities connect the ancient stories of our faith with the present. He also has a particular interest in the public narrative and presentation of the Christian story, with an eye towards how the church should respond to Christian nationalism.

Outside of his work, Thomas enjoys getting to know the Atlanta area with new friends, exploring the wonders(and disappointments) of public transit, kayaking, and trying/learning new recipes!
