Rev. Rick


Unitarian Universalist Minister


Since February 2009 I’ve served the First Unitarian Church of Los Angeles

The Koreatown/MacArthur Park neighborhood where we are located is diverse, urban and exciting.  With our affiliated organization Urban Partners Los Angeles, First Church offers a large number of social service programs to folks who live near the church. 

On this website you’ll find my most recent sermons and prayers and an archive of older sermons and prayers.  Under the “calendar” tab, I post information about where I’ll be preaching in the next several months.

See you at church!



Rev. Rick Hoyt-McDaniels is the settled minister of the First Unitarian Church of Los Angeles.

He was ordained to the Unitarian Universalist Ministry in 1998.
