Shared Ministry is our church’s governance model in which the mission of our church is shared among lay leaders and professional staff. Our mission, rooted in Unitarian Universalist values and principles, is guided by the members of the church who elect our Board and call our Minister. In turn, the Board empowers teams made of church leaders and staff to envision how the spiritual, physical, social, financial, and justice goals of our church can be met most effectively. As members of the teams, staff takes care of administrative responsibilities, freeing up teams to focus on the mission of our church – to foster spiritual growth and practice justice.
