Rev. Terri Burnor

Senior Movement Builder | she/her

Rev. Terri Burnor helps communities of faith and spiritual practice connect to and grow our movement for climate and racial justice. She delights in building relationships and celebrating the power of community organizing.

Terri worked in marketing and communications primarily for technology companies for nearly 20 years prior to answering her call to ministry in 2011. She earned a Master of Divinity from United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities and was ordained into the Unitarian Universalist ministry in 2017. Before joining MNIPL's staff in January 2021, she served two years as a co-interim minister for the Unitarian Universalist Church of Minnetonka. She is a member of Unity Church-Unitarian in St. Paul.

Terri is part of the steering team for MARCH (Multifaith Anti-Racism, Change, & Healing) and supports the work of MUUSJA (Minnesota Unitarian Universalist Social Justice Alliance). She joins her spouse in volunteering with Merrick Community Services on the east side of St. Paul and is a Recycling Ambassador with Ramsey County.

Terri is a life-long Minnesotan. She grew up outside of Duluth and believes Lake Superior is one of the wildest, most sacred, and beautiful places anywhere. Terri has converted most of her yard in St. Paul into native perennial and vegetable garden beds. She also enjoys riding an electric bike and walking the neighborhood with her spouse and dog.
