Congregations & Leaders
Meet Your Field Staff!
We on your Congregational Life field staff are here to support you in your ministries, to guide you toward effective governance, to connect you with other congregations, to challenge you to be in covenantal relationships, and to companion you so that you feel known, cared for, heard, seen and affirmed as a member congregation of the UUA.
