General questions about any of these unique ministerial opportunities or ready to apply? Contact UWM Employment Assistance at employmentassistanace@unity.org

For a variety of reasons, some ministries find themselves in a position where they are without an onsite minister. A Minister of Record (MOR) provides the spiritual support and administrate guidance that a Unity Minister can provide. MORs also ensure a foundational alignment with the Unity Worldwide Ministries (UWM) requirement that "a Unity Ministry has as its leadership a licensed and ordained Unity Minister or Leader serving under special dispensation from UWM." The MOR will mentor both the ministry's Spiritual Leadership Team and Board of Directors/Trustees to ensure that the ministry is operating within its bylaws and policies/procedures. Hours and financial compensation per week/month vary by assignment.

Interested in serving as an approved UWM Minister of Record? Or are you a Board member of a ministry interested in exploring how a UWM Minister of Record might assist you? Please contact Rev. Glenda Walden, Evolving Ministry and MOR Coordinator at evolve@unity.org.

Be a Sabbatical Coverage Minister!

Due to the nature of the work, it is not uncommon for ministers to need some time away to rest and recharge or pursue personal/professional growth opportunities. Many however may hesitate to take extended time off as they have concerns about the impact of their absence on their congregants and the daily operations of their ministry. 

Sabbatical ministers provide a much-needed service for those ministers needing or wanting to take a sabbatical. A sabbatical minister will serve temporarily as the senior minister. He/she will oversee all the responsibilities currently handled by the senior minister. The board, staff, and volunteers will continue to serve in their respective roles as leaders in the ministry, working with the sabbatical minister to ensure the smooth operation of the ministry during the sabbatical period.

More information about Unity Minister Sabbaticals can be found here. To apply to serve as a Sabbatical Minister, contact UWM Employment Assistance at employmentassistance@unity.org
