The Rev. Brian J. Mason was called as Minister to the First Universalist Unitarian Church of Wausau in the spring of 2017. He discovered Unitarian Universalism while studying English and Philosophy at Webster University. After obtaining a Master of Divinity from Eden Theological Seminary, Brian served as the David & Norma Lewis Ministerial Intern to the First Unitarian Church of St. Louis, and later worked as a chaplain at St. Louis University Hospital and Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital.
Brian and his wife, Sarah, live in Wausau with their daughter, Ellie. Together they enjoy road trips, exploring new places, and cooking and sharing meals. Brian also loves to birdwatch, run, and watch classic movies.
From Brian: “Serving the First UU Church of Wausau is a dream come true. It’s a vibrant and welcoming community that seeks growth while looking for ways to positively impact its respective communities, and our shared world. I hope one day you will join us.”
