Reardon, Jeanine and Julie Boleyn

Jeanine is a pastor serving as a Clinical Pastoral Education Supervisor. In her work, she helps her students understand their own gifts as a resource in their ministry. She also serves on the city council and uses her gifts as a chaplain in tending to the heartbreak and hope of the community, helping the community connect across differences. Jeanine was elected as part of a slate of candidates that drastically improved the diversity of civic leadership, raising up Latino and gay and lesbian candidates for service.

Julie Boleyn serves as pastor to both Unity Lutheran, and Comunidad Unida (a new bilingual, intercultural worshiping community) in Berwyn, Illinois. Under her leadership Unity Lutheran launched Awake! Time to Rise, a community development organization that specializes in education and engagement. This organization has incubated other groups, of which Julie has been a part. This includes Berwyn Comunidad en AccĂ­on, a group that has organized around social justice issues in Berwyn, including facilitating the passage of a Welcoming City Ordinance, and increasing the minimum wage. The group is currently working to support DACA recipients, and other immigrants. Julie lives in Berwyn with her spouse, Jeanine Reardon, and their daughter.
