The CENTER committee designs and delivers excellent continuing education that inspires, nurtures and transforms members of the UUMA.

The C.E.N.T.E.R. Committee (Continuing Education, Network, Training, Enrichment and Renewal) is a committee of the UUMA dedicated to helping professional ministers understand and prepare to meet the increasingly expanding and complex demands of religious leadership. We serve as a resource for the UUMA in its mission to organize, plan and support collegial networks of education and training such as

  • The Institute for The Learning MinistryA five day educational intensive featuring the cutting edge of education, worship, spiritual practices and collegial support and networking. This program is offered biannually.
  • Chapter Presenters Program: A program which helps subsidize Chapters efforts to contract with one of our C.E.N.T.E.R. presenters to present a 6-12 hour educational program at a UUMA chapter meeting or retreat. All of our C.E.N.T.E.R. presenters have expertise in one of 8 critical areas of professional development.
  • The UUMA Coaching program: Members with expertise in specific areas of ministry are trained in the art of coaching a specific facet of ministry. Members who wish to improve in such areas can work with a coach to set goals and determine the best ways to achieve them.
