Over the summer the coordinating team has been meeting to make plans for the first stages of the Ministerial Formation Network (MFN). The MFN is a new program designed to offer support and guidance to those preparing for Unitarian Universalist ministry. You can find more information about the programhere. We will be starting five to seven pilots around the continent later this fall to test how we can offer discernment support, training/education and collegiality to aspirants and candidates. If all goes as planned we expect to roll out the program to all UUMA members who are eligible in 2017. If you have any questions about the program you can contact Don until October 1, when our new Associate Executive Director, Melissa Carvill Ziemer, joins the staff.
