The Rev. Dr. Audette Fulbright Fulson
August 1, 2023
The Rev. Dr. Audette Fulbright Fulson is the Lead Minister/Exec of UUAvl. A graduate of Starr King School for the Ministry and Drew Theological Seminary who has previously served congregations in the South, on the West Coast, in the mid-West, and in New York City, her ministerial specialties include: the health of congregations, the development of ministers in formation, preaching and writing, and social justice. She has served in racial reconciliation and conflict resolution work for individuals and communities for over 15 years, and was delighted to perform the first LGBTQ marriage in Wyoming. She writes a well-regarded social media daily prayer series, and leads on the development of modern tools for the modern church. Rev. Audette interned with UU Asheville many years ago, and is soul-fed by the opportunity to return to this congregation, which has long held her heart.
With a doctorate in Public Theology, Audette has developed an educational and socio-spiritual process called ChangeCrafting, which allows individuals and groups to be more effective public change agents while also tending their personal and communal well-being.
Beyond the all-consuming passion of church and public ministry, Audette is married to her love, Rob Fulson, and they are the proud parents of two children, Ember and Mars. Ember is a successful entrepreneur and has been a UU leader in her own right, and Mars is a high school student and works in stage crafting.. Their family is rounded out by two small and overly-energetic dogs, Bailey & Dexter, and two very large cat siblings, Blackberry & Pippa.
