This week, we are addressing the question “What can we expect from a developmental minister?”
Developmental ministers have the following in common:
They are very experienced ministers. They have usually served in multiple locations, positions, and capacities. They have been successful in a variety of ministries. They have a strength in one or more areas that is a good fit for the congregational goals, in addition to the normal ministerial functions.
The Board Minister Selection Task Force has been working closely with UUA staff, and our involvement with UUA staff will continue right through the developmental minister’s tenure at UUCM. This is a shared ministry – both the congregation and the minister are going to be learning and growing through this process.
Keep the questions coming!
Do we have any candidate submissions yet? When does the submissions deadline close? What are next steps after that?
