Options for Ministers' Partners and Spouses

As the affectional partner of a clergy person, each UU Minister’s Partner finds him or herself in a unique situation that brings both privileges and challenges.  UUMPs exists electronically, at regional gatherings, and at GA to provide a space for sharing and mutual support.  Please join us.  We gather electronically and learn of gatherings using the following: To subscribe or unsubscribe via the World Wide Web, visit or, via email, send a message with subject or body 'help' to

The UUMA is happy to welcome member’s partners and spouses to Ministry Days each year.  You may register at the same time as your partner or independently at (although the system will ask you to log in you may continue without doing so).  When registering we ask that you consider how much of the programming you will be attending:
  • UUMPs Full Registration: Reception, Worships, Choir, see full program at:
  • UUMPs One Day Registration: Perhaps you just wish to come on Wednesday (25/50 Worship, UUMPs Annual Gathering, Berry Street Essay) – we have created one day registrations just for this purpose! (Tuesday only also available)

Please note there are discounted rates for partners and spouses. These rates are not available onsite. 

Unitarian Universalist Minsters’ Partners

On Tuesday, June 21 at 1:30 p.m. the UUMA will be holding their collegial conversation titled: "Can you hear me?" Join Unitarian Universalist Ministers’ Partners as we learn about a new initiative by the UUMA, UURMaPA, and UUMPS exploring ways in which our partners and families can be supported. Being a minister’s partner is a unique position bringing what some perceive as privileges and some perceive as challenges. Over the years many partners have voiced feelings of isolation and confusion about navigating this life.  This initiative will focus on outreach and dissemination of information about strategies that have worked for others and may work for you, too.

Also on Tuesday, June 21 from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM clergy couples are invited to gather for dinner at   Union Cafe, 782 N High St. Union Cafe is a short .4 mile walk (3 blocks) from the Convention Center. There is also a bus running every 4 minutes to the Cafe if you prefer. Dining is reasonably priced (the highest menu option is $18) and includes omnivore, vegan and gluten free options. Contact Joe Cherry at for questions. 


On Wednesday, June 22 from 10:15 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. all UUMPs are invited to attend our own “annual meeting.” 

Join Unitarian Universalist Ministers’ Partners as we gather for our annual check-in.  We will share our triumphs and challenges and offer mutual support.
