Regarding the Upcoming Interim Search

If you are planning an interim search, please:

  1. Do not create an interim application in the old settlement system. The UUA has developed a new search system, MinistrySearch, that will be used for all search processes moving forward.
  2. Send an email to to let us know. Include your congregation’s full name, city, and state and the name and email for your contact person. The Transitions Office will then be able to initiate your search in our new system.
  3. Tell us if the interim ministry will be full-time or what percent of time and the planned duration (two years is recommended).
