Training Available March 15, 2024!
This training is our first post-lockdown “growth and vitality” resource, in collaboration with the UU Association of Membership Professionals (UUAMP). Instead of focusing on growth for its own sake, we focus on the transformative power that Unitarian Universalism has in people’s lives and how our congregations can be provide a welcoming and inclusive experience for everyone who comes through our doors.
People come to Unitarian Universalist congregations seeking connection and authentic community in a wider culture that is filled with patterns of individualism, transactionalism, exploitation, extraction and other patterns of white supremacy culture.
This training is designed for application across your ministry teams. Learn to work together to reinforce life-affirming and creative frameworks and use practical tools for welcoming and inclusion, connection and belonging, all as foundational to a membership journey in your congregation grounded in mutuality and consent.
Developed by UUA Congregational Life Regional Staff in partnership with the UU Association of Membership Professionals (UUAMP), this training is grounded in experiences and stories of UU congregations throughout the Association.
This training is organized into Modules and topics, but you can access the materials in any order (i.e. “free form”), and mark them as complete to help you keep track of your progress. We recommend that everyone complete Module 1: Four Frameworks for Understanding Congregational Life.
