The UUFA and our former minister, Rev. Alison Eskildsen, collaboratively designed a Ministry Council model that earned our congregation national recognition as a UUA Breakthrough Congregation. Innovative and energetic, the Ministry Council has continued to evolve over the last decade.
Active members with volunteer experience at UUFA may feel called to explore Lay Ministry as an act of deepening service and commitment. Contact the minister for more information.
Ministry is a calling, whether someone is seeking ordination or serves as a Lay Minister. The ordained clergy serving the Fellowship help aspiring Lay Ministers discern their calling and their fit into this program. After one is accepted into the program, a year-long training takes place. Lay Ministers serve a two-year term with an option to continue for one additional two-year term.
