How does one become a Unitiarian Universalist minister?
"If you're interested in pursuing the path to professional ministry with the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA), you're going to have to read...a lot. Remember, ministry is not just a calling; it is a learned profession.
If you're really interested in becoming a Unitarian Universalist (UU) minister, visit www.uua.org, which explains in detail the many steps necessary to follow this path. You'll find on the Ministery and Professional Leadership section a reading list. These are books that you are expected to have read in addition to whatever many thousands of pages a graduate theological degree (typically, the M.Div.) will require." [source: Amazon.com/books - a listing of some of the readings required!]
For a more complete description of the process of becoming a credentialed Unitarian Universalist Minister, go to the "Ministry" section at the Unitarian Universalist Association web site.
For the Guidelines and the Code of Professional Practice of the Unitarian Universalist Minister's Association(UUMA) you may visit the UUMA web site.
It seems to be a daunting task - becoming a minister. However, the basic minister may be within you - and the task of becoming a credentialed minister then seems less daunting, because it is part of you, who you want to be in this world!
