Summer Seminary for Unitarian Universalist Youth

Summer Seminary is a program for Unitarian Universalist youth exploring the possibility of becoming a religious professional. Focusing on ordained ministry and credentialed leadership in religious education and music, the program offers youth the opportunity to explore their call to ministry in all its forms, learn about life as a religious professional, and connect with other youth considering ministry, religious education and other religious professional career paths.

Summer Seminary 2015 will take place July 29-August 3, 2015 in Denver, CO at Iliff School of Theology. It is open to those who were in grades 10-12 (or the equivalent for home-schooled youth) for the 2014-2015 school year, including those who bridge into young adulthood in the spring/summer of 2015.

A program of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) in collaboration with Iliff School of Theology and the Pacific Western Region, Summer Seminary 2015 will explore:

  • personal call to ministry
  • leadership styles
  • preaching
  • worship and liturgy
  • faith development and theology
  • spiritual practices and self-care
  • life in seminary
  • different forms of ministry
  • the ordination, credentialing and fellowship processes
