Charlie Kuchenbrod

Charlie Kuchenbrod and Becky Sielman joined South Church in 1988, not long before their wedding here. Charlie had a career in health care management until being called to the staff of the Connecticut Conference of the UCC in 2002, where he had multiple roles in finance and administration. He sort of retired in 2021, but continues to serve as a consultant for endowment management and legacy churches – churches focused on building their legacies as they come to the completion of their ministries.

Rev. Isaac Lawson is the South Central Area Conference Minister for the Southern New England Conference of the United Church of Christ (UCC). The region includes the churches and clergy in the Central Connecticut, Farmington Valley, Hartford, Hartford East, Middlesex, New London and Tolland Associations. Rev.

Rev. Lawson has a Bachelor of Arts in Communications and Religious Studies with Honors from Goucher College, a Master of Divinity from Union Theological Seminary, NYC, and a Master of Sacred Theology from Yale Divinity School.  For Rev. Lawson, the heart of ministry is summed up in Jesus’ command to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love our neighbor as ourselves. (Mark 12.30-31)
