Congregations & Leaders

The regional Congregational Life staff are congregations' local connection to the UUA. All of the program Congregational Life staff have expertise in most aspects of congregational life and each also has a few program areas of expertise.

The mission of Congregational Life staff is to:

  • Coach: Congregations feel supported in their work, both structural and missional
  • Connect: Congregations feel they are a part of a larger Association
  • Challenge: Congregations understand their covenantal relationship with their UUA
  • Companion: Congregations feel known, cared for, heard, seen and affirmed
