LeaderLab is a set of online resources representing a range of perspectives in leadership development and congregational life. Go to LeaderLab when you're curious about a scenario in your congregation and want to learn more. Find articles, videos, webinars, tips, tools, tutorials, and links to other valuable online resources. Share them with your board and staff members, and consider learning together as a group.

Imagine a search engine similar to Worship Web. Or a way to onboard new board members or ideas for facilitating board retreats. As individuals or as congregational teams, you can also go deeper by taking an online course (at your own pace) through UU Leadership Institute or register for an in-person Leadership School. You can find all this and more by checking out LeaderLab at
