The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA), Unitarian Universalist Ministers Association (UUMA), and the Unitarian Universalist Retired Ministers and Partners Association (UURMaPA) are highly committed to ensuring that mid to late career clergy engage fully in conversation and preparation for healthy, thriving retirement years. We are excited to support financial preparedness as well as ensuring that our clergy are well equipped for the spiritual and psychological realities that ensue as a result of retiring from full-time, active ministry. Because many clergy choose to continue serving in some capacity beyond retirement out of necessity and/or passion and we aim to assist clergy in planning creatively for healthy post-retirement ministries.
Thanks to support from each organization and the Fund for Unitarian Universalism,we will be offering a retirement seminar for those aged 55 and older who plan on retiring in 5-10 years from March 26-31, 2017 near San Antonio co-facilitated by
Rev. Dr. Lawrence (Larry) Peers . Experience has taught us that the ideal model for such conversations includes a focused in-person gathering and extends beyond a single seminar. We view this Retirement Seminar as a launch pad for virtual and in-person small group ministry conversations grounded in financial, spiritual, and psychological preparedness for one's eventual retirement. The seminar will include opportunities for attendees to design their customized map toward retirement and their vision of the first few years of retirement. Additionally, attendees will have opportunities to review their financial readiness for retirement as well as gain a firm understanding of the financial practicalities of their particular situation. We are also hoping that many participants will be willing to act as coaches after the program. Registration is limited. For more information and to apply for the seminar go HERE.
