Ongoing Support by the Unitarian Universalist Association

The Unitarian Universalist Association provides ongoing support for UU military chaplains and chaplain candidates in the following ways:

  1. The UUA funds and supports the logistics for an annual training event for UU military chaplains and chaplain candidates. Program planning is the mutual responsibility of the UUMA Military Chaplain Chapter leaders and the UUA Official Endorser.
  2. The Official Endorser is available for support and counsel for all military chaplains.
  3. When possible, the Official Endorser will attend important ceremonies such as retirements or graduations from the Chaplain School and visit chaplains at their duty station.
  4. Official Endorser will consult with the Chief of Chaplains should issues arise in the Chaplain’s/Chaplain Candidate’s service to provide support and ensure fair treatment.
  5. The Official Endorser will be active with the National Conference on Ministry to the Armed Forces and adhere to the NCMAF code of ethics.
  6. The UUA will hold an annual military reception at the General Assembly for chaplains, veterans, and currently serving service members to honor their service.
