A workshop designed for boards, committees, church staff, newly nominated or elected leaders, and volunteers who want to tap their individual and collective power for living into the mission and purpose of their congregation. 

PRESENTERS: Your New England Region UUA Staff Team

As leaders in your congregation, do you feel your church commitments are more like chores than a joyful expression of your faith? Are you collectively worried about having enough -- time, money, volunteers, funding, members? Do your people long to deepen or recapture their connection to each other, to spirit, to purpose? Do you have a vision for change but feel unsure how to bring it about or how to express it in a way that will be welcomed?

If you answered “Yes” to these questions, now is the time to claim your spiritual leadership.

Spiritual leadership assumes that all people have gifts the world needs, that everyone has access to a power from within that can energize the community’s collective creativity and action. Congregations can be purposeful communities where we celebrate and share our gifts, where covenants are more than words on a website, where we take faithful risks together that show us what is really possible together. Spiritual leadership transforms church work into spiritual growth, community building, and faithful action.

This program is designed for religious professionals and lay people to build collective practice for collective action. Because shifts in congregational practice require sustained group effort, you are strongly encouraged to attend this workshop with a team of five or more.
