Ministries and Faith Development

The Ministries and Faith Development (MFD) staff group serves Unitarian Universalism by creating healthy, transformative, multigenerational, and diverse ministries and religious education. MFD includes a Director's Office and four functional offices.

The Office of Church Staff Finance provides information, services, and programs—including the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) Health Plan—used by Unitarian Universalist congregations and their ministers, religious educators, and other employees in matters of fair compensation and benefits arrangements.

The Lifespan Faith Engagement Office provides resources for lifespan religious education, worship, advocacy, and social action that nurture Unitarian Universalist identity, spiritual growth, a transforming faith, and vital communities of justice and love.
