The Ministerial Fellowship Committee of the Unitarian Universalist Association is beginning a review of the competencies required of candidates seeking fellowship as UU ministers. This review follows several years of study by the UUA Board of Trustees and the UUA administration as part of the Excellence in Ministry initiative begun by the Board.
In the first stage of the review the MFC will be seeking the advice of the many parties and organizations that have a stake in ministerial excellence. They include the UUA Board, the administration, professional ministry organizations, seminaries, candidates themselves, and various other UU groups. The Rev. Wayne Arnason, chair of the MFC, also invites comments from individual members of congregations about areas of ministerial competency that are important to them. The MFC can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
