Zoom Networking  *  Booth Chat Monitoring  *  UUSCM GA21 Envoy 

This year I am serving as the UUSCM General Assembly 2021 virtual presence coordinator. GA 2020 moved to being 100 percent virtual at the last minute. This year, Virtual GA21 is building on what was learned at GA20 and planning was aimed at a Virtual GA21 from the start. This year I expect GA to be fantastic. Please plan to attend and support UUSCM’s participation. We have opportunities for volunteers of many types and levels of commitment.

UUSCM has 3 “Official Workshops” in the GA21 Program!!!

#602 Announcing: UU Lay Chaplain Denominational Endorsement by UUSCM. On-Demand Webinar

This program is a GA21 Silver Sponsor!

UUSCM offers UU Chaplains a second path to become Board Certified, often a requirement for Chaplain employment. This was requested by the UUA, received a UUFP startup grant and has been desired by UU Lay Chaplains for decades. Come learn how UUSCM is widening the road to UU paid ministry.

From military chaplaincy to nonprofit administration, arts activism to spiritual direction, community ministry is a diverse, vibrant and fast-growing field that includes ordained ministers and lay leaders. Come learn about UU community ministries, how they serve in relationship to churches and communities -- and envision your own!

#305 Collaborative Covenant Writing for Community Ministers and Congregations. Live Workshop Friday, June 25 at 4:00 pm CDT

What an inspiration it is to be in covenant with one another!

With a focus on developing a Community of Communities, UUSCM presents a workshop offering the framework for the co-creation of a covenant between a Community Minister, the Senior Minister, and the Congregation that they serve.
