|The UUMA Coaching Program|
What is the UUMA Coaching Program?
UUMA Peer Coaches work one-on-one with colleagues over a one-year timespan to help them set and achieve specific action-oriented goals to take their ministries to the next level. Unlike Mentoring, which offers general guidance to ministers in formation, Coaching is especially powerful for ministers who have been in their ministry settings long enough to have identified specific areas for improvement, but may feel stuck – Peer Coaches provide accountability, encouragement, and structured conversation to get you out of your rut.
When is the right time for you to get a coach?
Do you know where you want to go but need help getting there?
A coach helps you clarify your action goals
Are you stuck in your perspective?
A coach listens deeply to you – helping you discover new insights
Are you leading from your spiritual center?
A coach can help you re-center yourself and your ministry
You are seasoned in ministry, in final fellowship. Coaching can re-focus your ministry, re-center your spirit, and help you identify, set, and reach the right action-oriented goals for this time.
If you are looking for a way to jump-start some aspect of your ministry, now might be the time to get a coach!
Who is eligible?
Coaching is for any UUMA Member in good standing and in Final Fellowship who can commit to 8-12 sessions with a coach via telephone, video-call or in-person over a one-year period. You can only have one UUMA coach at a time unfortunately.
