In the spirit of both July 4th and Juneteenth, Rev. Anthony Jenkins will lead a service centered in the trustworthy life of Harriet Tubman. Together we’ll consider her lifelong spirit of interdependence, and the many lives entrusted to her over the years as abolitionist, activist, faith leader, freedom-fighter, and U.S. Army Special Forces ("Black Ops").
Rev. Jenkins currently serves as assistant minister at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Columbia, MD. A native of Washington DC, he has also called PA, VA, upstate NY, and southern MD home. He holds a B.A. in Music (Performance) from Morgan State University and has made his living as a freelance bassist in the DC/MD/VA metropolitan area for the last 19 years. He holds a Masters of Divinity from Meadville Lombard Theological School in Chicago, IL. Rev. Jenkins served for five years as a bassist in the 257th Army Band (DC), before commissioning into the U.S. Army Chaplain Corps in 2014; he will transition to active-duty Air Force chaplaincy this coming fall. He has also served as a chaplain at Johns Hopkins Bayview Hospital in Baltimore. He, his wife Sarah, and their son Tobias live in the Forest Glen neighborhood of Silver Spring, MD.
