In order to provide more transparency about the process of selecting a new minister, the Board will be providing weekly updates on our progress. (And note that although we’ve used “minister” we are also open to a minister team or other possible configurations.) UUCM has a long history of selecting called ministers who do not have a pre-agreed term length. For a variety of reasons, we have decided it would be best to take a different course for our next minister. We are pivoting to a development ministry model and it is the responsibility of the Board to select the best applicant. We have recently identified our Selection Task Force which is comprised of Robert Brooks, Bill Arnold, Julia Antonsen, and Becky Halat, who are working with Christine Purcell, the Transitions Program Manager at the UUA. We are on track! Next week, we will be sharing more about the developmental ministry model and more details about the process so stay tuned! If you have any questions, please ask any Board member.
