Church Office Management
- The Congregational Handbook: How to Develop a Healthy and Vital Unitarian Universalist Congregation.
A web-based reference and guide for member congregations in the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA).
- Update Your Congregation's Members and Leaders Information
Each member congregation is encouraged to manage its UUA membership list on a regular basis so that members will receive the quarterly UU World magazine. Authorized congregational staff can manage mailing list and congregational Leader & Staff information online by using the my.UUA.org account system.
- Congregational Staffing
Whether your congregation employs a single part-time staff member or a staff numbering in the dozens, it is important to staff in a way that promotes your congregation’s vision and mission while providing staff with the resources necessary to achieve what you expect of them.
- Web Tools for Volunteer Management (from the Faith and Web blog)
Like any other nonprofit, small or large, churches tend to rely heavily on help from volunteers to make things happen. Whether or not your staff includes a volunteer coordinator, you can keep a few guidelines in mind that will make the whole volunteer experience happier and more fulfilling for all involved (yes, staff included).
