Southwest 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 Southwest District, also known as the Southwestern Unitarian Universalist Conference, serves seventy-eight congregations in an area which includes most of Texas (excluding the El Paso area); all of Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana; Memphis, TN; Springfield, MO; San Miguel de Allende, Mexico; and several emerging congregations in Mexico.
