Breakthrough Congregations: New Ways for a New Day
Breakthrough Congregations is shifting gears. The new focus seeks to celebrate and share innovative ways congregations are adapting to the challenges that they face in this changing religious landscape.
A successful Breakthrough Congregation has demonstrated an innovation or adaptation that is entirely new to the congregation and could be useful to other congregations. Innovations may be either sustainable or bold one-time changes of great impact and meaning. This isn’t about numerical growth, congregational size or even whole-congregation programming.
Applications are being accepted through September 1, 2017. Selected congregations will be profiled in the UU World, receive a Breakthrough Congregation certificate and a badge to include on your congregation's website.
Any Board Member, or Board delegate, can Apply to be a Breakthrough Congregation.
You can find a list of Breakthrough Congregations from 2005-2016.
