Cheryl Perry


Minister of Families & Social Justice




Cheryl came to First United with a background in curriculum writing and education, energy and experience working with youth and children. She is the author and editor of several books and resources including Youth Spirit, Live the Story: Dramas for Worship, and The Story of the Bible: How the World’s Bestselling Book Came to Be.

Cheryl is a mother of three children herself  who loves the challenge of making Bible stories come alive through drama and faith to be relevant to the lives of young people. She enjoys creating intergenerational experiences, often writing her own dramas for use in worship.

She also finds her work with marginalized members of the community  through outreach programs important to her spiritual and theological growth!

When she isn’t immersed in ministry, she loves to spend time with her family, loves cooking and eating, reading, and travelling!
