Amy Norton, Associate Pastor


Amy Norton

Amy grew up not far from United Parish, in a small coastal town on the South Shore of Massachusetts. She graduated from Harvard Divinity School in 2016, but her path toward ministry started much earlier than that; she first felt called to ministry on a youth service trip in 2006, and ever since then she has done her best to answer and live into that call, which has led her to her current ministry at United Parish.

As a youth, Amy served on the United Church of Christ (UCC) Council for Youth and Young Adult Ministries, and prior to her time at United Parish, she interned at the MIT Protestant Chaplaincy, the Edinburgh Interfaith Association, New England Baptist Hospital, and Hillside Church in Medford (then North Prospect Union). Amy is also a member of the 10th cohort of the Next Generation Leadership Initiative, a leadership development initiative created to “honor and challenge younger clergy who demonstrate significant potential, who have accepted the high calling to parish ministry, who view parish ministry as a career path, and are willing to make a long-term commitment to service in congregational settings of the United Church of Christ”.

Amy loves singing, well-buttered popcorn, strategic thinking, oil painting, and cheering on the New England Patriots. She currently lives in Waltham with her fiancé, Zac, and their three dogs: Melon, Coda, and Sammy.
