Steven Aucella is a 2013 graduate of Andover Newton Theological School. As part of his training, Steve served as a student pastor at First Congregational Church UCC in Stoughton and as a chaplain intern at New England Baptist Hospital in Boston. Steve has served as a guest preacher in the United Church of Christ for the past seven years, mostly covering the South Shore and Cape Cod.
Most recently, Steve served as co-pastor at Promise Church in Weymouth. Promise Church is a small house church that holds services in private homes on a rotating basis. It is literally ‘the church in a box’ that can worship God anywhere where two or three are gathered.
Steve also serves on two committees in the Massachusetts Conference of the United Church of Christ: the Southeast Area Missions team and the Disaster Resource team. The Southeast Area Missions team’s most recent project cast a light on the human trafficking issue and its impact on the South Shore. An upcoming project for 2017 will focus on the opioid crisis in Massachusetts.
Steve lives in Marshfield with his wife Jody Regan, an artist who also teaches middle school math in Norwell, and their daughter Kate, who is a third year student at Northeastern. Their cats Maggie and Fred keep things interesting at home.
