Announcing the UUSCM BCCi Faith Endorsement Process

November 19, 2021

Dear Community,

We are delighted to announce a new process for Unitarian Universalists who are seeking the Faith Endorsement for the Board of Chaplaincy Certification inc (BCCi), created in coordination with the UUA Ministries and Faith Development and the UU Society for Community Ministries. As part of our faith’s commitment to supporting chaplaincy, we have established an additional track for Unitarian Universalists whose primary interest is chaplaincy, and who do not currently desire to become an ordained and fellowshipped minister, to seek a Faith Endorsement. Our goal is to provide an accountable and accessible process for Unitarian Universalists to pursue a chaplaincy career. 

The UUA and UUSCM began to envision this new process in 2017 and we have been through a comprehensive study and development process. The UUSCM Faith Endorsement is a focused assessment of Unitarian Universalists seeking endorsement for BCCi certification.

Applicants for UUSCM Faith Endorsement must complete and submit a series of requirements that demonstrate their active engagement with the UU faith, awareness and knowledge of UU values and identity, and a commitment to live into those values as a BCCi chaplain.

If you, or someone you know is interested in the UUSCM Faith Endorsement, please visit our website at or contact Inanna Arthen, UUSCM Administrator at for the latest Faith Endorsement information.
