First Parish to Host New England Region UUA Leadership Conference

new-england-regionLooking for an exciting opportunity to help out our UUA district and learn all about church leadership — for free?

We are excited to be hosting the New England Region UUA Leadership Workshop: Cracking the Leadership Crisis on Saturday, Oct. 22, 2016 from 10 am to 3 pm.

We need 3-5 hospitality volunteers to help throughout the day: in the morning for set up, during lunch break, and for clean up after the event. Volunteers will be able to attend the workshop for free. Information about the workshop is below.

If you are interested, please email Jane Foley in the office or call her at 781-862-8200 x1.

Church leadership is not all it’s cracked up to be. Too often, leadership looks like paying bills, reviewing minutes, and making decisions that at least some people won’t understand, and many people won’t even know about. At its best, church leadership is a profound experience of spiritual deepening. Bring a team to join other congregational teams in exploring how to:

Release worry and anxiety about burnout and having “not enough” volunteers

Anchor leaders in a profound sense of purpose

Make leadership a personal growth experience

Restructure church infrastructure to focus on meaningful work

Liberate the energy of collaboration and covenanted community

We encourage your team to continue the workshop’s strategic conversations once you return home.
