Mosaic Makers, hosted by the Unitarian Universalist Association’s Multicultural Ministries team, offers a space for teams from congregations deeply engaged in the work of building intentional multicultural community to gather together in spiritual community for two and a half days of worship, experiential learning, and community building around the theme of strengthening the fabric of Unitarian Universalist (UU) multicultural ministries.
The conference is a part of the Multicultural Leadership Institute and grew out of the 2011 Multicultural Growth Consultation that brought together congregational leaders from eight UU congregations deeply committed and invested in multicultural ministry to share and learn and journey together.
The first Mosaic Makers took place in February 2012 in partnership with All Souls Church, Unitarian in Washington, DC; approximately 100 UU professional and lay religious leaders came together to grow, learn, and commit through worship, congregational life, justice ministry, and leadership.

A second Mosaic Makers will be held November 8–10, 2013, in partnership with All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, OK! We are delighted to have the opportunity to explore the rich ways in which the All Souls Tulsa ministerial staff—as well as leadership from other UU congregations and UUA staff—imbed multicultural sensibility into all aspects of their ministries.
Our 2013 keynote speaker is Rev. Dr. Miguel A. De La Torre, author and speaker extraordinaire on the intersections of religion, ethics, race, class, and gender and Professor of Social Ethics and Latino/a Studies at the Iliff School of Theology.
Macky Alston, Auburn Seminary Media Director, will offer his inspired media training for religious professionals.
Mosaic Makers depends on an element of co-creation; thus, participation in Mosaic Makers 2012 was limited to teams from congregations that participated in the Multicultural Growth Consultation or were newly emerging as leaders in multicultural ministry efforts.
Mosaic Makers 2013 will build on what began last year—initial registration is open only to teams from Mosaic Maker congregations, but registration opened for additional congregational teams on October 4, 2013. Please note that Mosaic Makers is not designed for individual clergy, religious professionals, or lay leaders; rather, the conference is designed for team participation.
When planning who from your congregation will attend, keep in mind that a team of 4 to 8 participants is ideal.
Mosaic Makers registration officially closed October 25th. For any eleventh-hour problems or questions, please email email@example.com.
