Over 150 aspirants and candidates have signed up to take part in the new Ministerial Formation Network, which is a collaboration between the UUMA and the UUA.
Orientation for participants
will be held in early September.If you are interested in participating, it isn't too late to sign up
. In reality, enrollment will remain open as people acquire aspirant status every week of the year. Participants who enroll from now on will have their formation support from an individual vocational advisor (unless there happens to be an opening in a discernment group that hasn't gotten started yet).
Colleagues from each UUMA chapter (save two) have signed on to be MFN Liaisons in their chapter.(We are still looking for a colleague from the Pacific Northwest and Prairie Star chapters who may be interested in this role.Let Melissa know if you are interested.)
MFN Liaisons will also have orientation in September and will then be working with us to pair participants with Discernment Group leaders and Individual Vocational Advisors. Many thanks once again to the almost 100 colleagues who have volunteered for MFN leadership roles.We truly appreciate the investment you are making in nurturing the future of Unitarian Universalist ministry!
