What is Our Ministry?
Community ministry addresses the social and spiritual needs of people and organizations outside the direct care of congregations.
Inspired by the religious values expressed in the Unitarian Universalist Principles and Purposes, our work is guided by the Code of Professional Conduct and informed by our training and life experiences. Our practices bring knowledge, compassion and healing to the people in our care.
Community Ministers may be Chaplains, Pastoral Counselors, Spiritual Directors, University or Theological School Faculty, Social Justice Activists, Denominational Officials, or practitioners of a wide range of other activities.
All members of UUSCM must be members in good standing of a Unitarian Universalist Congregation. While rare exceptions are possible, all have a reference from their parish minister in addition to other references.
