UCOM Welcomes Erik Keener as New Executive Director

The Board of Directors of United Church Outreach Ministry (UCOM) is very pleased to announce Erik Keener as the organization’s new Executive Director. Erik has over fifteen years of experience at UCOM in various roles with progressive responsibility. He is a leader in promoting a culture of health, specifically in the system of healthy food access, and he has a strong understanding of the importance of the voices and experiences of neighboring community members in planning and implementing services. Erik’s operational experience, along with his relationships with existing donors and enthusiasm for expanding that donor base, will be assets to the organization as we move forward.


Erik has been serving as Interim Executive Director since the spring, following the retirement of long-time Executive Director, Dr. Bruce Roller. He officially begins in the Executive Director role on July 8th, 2024.


Please join us in welcoming Erik Keener to his new role. We are confident that under his leadership, UCOM will continue to thrive and make a positive impact in our community.
