Mid-South District

The Southern Region

The Southern Region is a collaboration of Boards and Field Staff that has evolved over the last four years. In the fall of 2012, the entire Field Staff team was integrated into a working group of "Congregational Life Consultants" 

As of July 1, 2013, all four District budgets have been unified into one accounting system with a ratio for determining equitable income and cost sharing.

The Mid-South District is home to thirty-three Unitarian Universalist (UU) congregations in the South, in a region that stretches from Tennessee to the Gulf of Mexico and from Georgia to the Mississippi River. Mid-South District serves all the UU congregations in Alabama and Mississippi, three in the panhandle of Florida, three in middle Tennessee and the congregations in metropolitan Atlanta and north and central Georgia.
