The Reverend Frederick J. Streets was appointed Chaplain of Yale University and Senior Pastor of the Church of Christ in Yale (UCC) in 1992.

His research, publication, teaching and lecture interests are in pastoral theology, institutional leadership and development, and religion and social welfare.

Prior to becoming the University Chaplain at Yale, Jerry was the Pastor of the Mount Aery Baptist Church in Bridgeport, Connecticut from 1975-1992.

Reverend Streets is a senior consultant with the Harvard University Program in Refugee Trauma. In Bosnia, he has worked with refugees, physicians, religious and civic leaders, and members of the social work faculty at the University of Sarajevo in dealing with that region's post-war spiritual and psychosocial needs. He was a member of a delegation sponsored by the CT Conference of the United Church of Christ and the Mennonite Church that recently visited with religious and civil leaders in Columbia, South America. He joined over 100 scholars and professionals of non-profit and non-governmental organizations convened in Buenos Aires, Argentina this past October to promote greater understanding of the non-profit sectors relationship to higher education and peace making in the western hemisphere.
