Duffy Peet

Rev. Duffy Peet retired from ministry in June, 2022 after having been the minister of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Bozeman (UUFB) for six years. Prior to his ministry in Bozeman he had served congregations in Pocatello, ID and Portage, MI. During his tenure at UUFB, he worked with others to found Montana Interfaith Power and Light. In 2019 he was one of the founding Board members of Montana Interfaith Power and Light and from its founding until August, 2021, he served as the President of the Board. Ministry was his second career, which he entered in his mid-50’s. Prior to that he had been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a private counseling practice in Kalispell, MT. Both his ministry and social work careers, as well as his time on the Board of Montana Interfaith Power and Light, provide examples of his commitment to being of service and living in right relationship with others and the Earth.

Ann Schrader

Ann has several loves in her life:  Her husband, two children, five grandchildren, faith, Bozeman and the outdoors, and working with new nonprofit organizations to develop a grounded infrastructure that serves them into the future. She moved to Bozeman 17 years ago for more snow.  Ann now realizes that Climate Change in her hometown of Denver was the driving force behind her move. Today she is committed to working with others to make changes and improve the climate so her grandchildren can enjoy winter sports as she does.

Ann has a master’s degree in Religion from Iliff School of Theology and worked in the nonprofit sector as an Executive Director and consultant for over 27 years.  She is active as a board member for Gallatin Valley Interfaith Association and as the administrator for Women’s Ecumenical Bible Study of Gallatin Valley.
