Congregational Life

The mission of Congregational Life staff is to:

  • Coach: Congregations feel supported in their work, both structural and missional
  • Connect: Congregations feel they are a part of a larger Association
  • Challenge: Congregations understand their covenantal relationship with their UUA
  • Companion: Congregations feel known, cared for, heard, seen and affirmed

About Our Regions

Stated simply we strive to serve interdependence, innovation, and impact.

As Unitarian Universalists, we believe that the sacred and the power of grace arise from the interdependent web of which we all are a part. As we build deeper connections between all of us, a powerful creativity arises that enables us to transform the world and each other.
—Rev. Scott Tayler, former Director, Congregational Life
