Ministerial Search Committee: Where are we?
Good news! YoUUr MSC has been hard at work and we are happy to report that the Congregational Record has been completed and submitted for the UUA Ministerial Settlement System. What's next?
The Congregational Packet! Prospective ministerial candidates will be studying our packet to see if MVUUF is a potential match for their unique way of leading a UU community.
The Congregational Packet is now live and available for anyone who wants to view it. All are welcome and encouraged to browse it at mvuuf.org/search.
One section of the packet is password protected. Access to that section will be granted only to selected ministers in search. MVUUF voting members have access to those documents, such as financial statements, through other means.
Everything you want to know about the Ministerial Search is here.
