The Ministerial Transition Team (MTT) has finished their analysis of UUFF needs and preferences for proceeding after Rev. Jim retires on June 30th.
The MTT, under the leadership of Kate Kowalski, worked diligently to prepare these recommendations, and we are confident that they reflect the will of the membership and that they can be carried out. A Search Committee is forming and will develop the plan to find qualified candidates who are able to carry out these identifiable responsibilities. MTT based their recommendation on input received from UUFF members from the survey and focus groups, and from conducting a thorough review of UUFF’s overall financial picture.
The final review presented to the Board on April 22, 2021, revealed that:
- We will be hiring a contract, part-time minister in the coming months; until that time, the Chalice Team will continue to provide services by using our talented staff plus gracious volunteers who have kept our services strong throughout the covid crisis. Yearly funds for guest ministers and musicians are available as needed.
- The minister will be expected to provide two full-length sermons a month plus attend one additional service, carry out administrative duties including attending Board meetings, staying in contact with the Chalice Team, plus providing pastoral care and other related activities.
We are so grateful for the great work performed by the MTT and their delivering the final recommendations to us as soon as possible.
UUFF Board President
