The UUCF Board of Directors appointed the following search team to fill the new position of Assistant Minister for Congregational Engagement and Spiritual Enrichment: Peggy Hillman (Board of Directors), Meetu Kaul (UUCF People of Color Caucus), Senior Minister Rev. David A. Miller, Nancy Smith (Program Evaluation Committee) and Linda Zack (Lay Minister for Caring & Wellness).
Because most UU ministers and congregations engage in ministerial search in the early spring, the pool of ministers in search is somewhat limited at this time. In addition, UUCF needs to fill this position by September. For these reasons, the Unitarian Universalist Association Transitions Office has advised the UUCF search team to abbreviate its search process, including holding most of its interviews via live video. So far, the search team has decided on its selection process, identified qualified candidates and begun the live video interviews. The team expects to identify and name a candidate by mid-July. The position is a 10-month contract with the option to renew at the end of the contract.
