21st CENTURY MINISTRY ENHANCEMENT: The Art and Practice of Governance for the 21st Century Session 2 – The Three P’s – Purpose, People and Process – Morning Edition

January 11 @ 10:30 am 12:30 pm

Join us for 21st Century Ministry Enhancement: The Art and Practice of Governance for the 21st Century Session 2 – The Three P’s – Purpose, People and Process 

Facilitated by Reverend Mary Masters

This event is sponsored by Unity Worldwide Ministries Eastern Region and Southeast Region.

Included in this event:

  • This series is for anyone who thinks of governance as their least favorite part of ministry, or even “a necessary evil.” 
  • Ministers and spiritual leaders, as well as Board members and anyone who wants to participate in the governance of their ministry, and encourage others to participate, with greater effectiveness, fulfillment and joy, will benefit from attending this seminar.   
  • Over the series of the two sessions, we will discover governance can be an “expressive art not unlike preaching,” and that it is a spiritual practice. Additionally, we will see how it is a valuable opportunity for teaching good civics for the betterment of our world.

Session Two:  The Three P’s – Purpose, People and Process

  • Mission-centric ministry – what is it and how do we make it part of our ministry practice?
  • People – nurturing and developing our greatest resource, consciousness, energy management, spiritual and emotional maturity
  • Processes – meetings, decision-making processes and feedback. 
  • What does a “feedback-rich” environment look like and how do we cultivate that for our ongoing, continuous improvement (the practice of ministry)?

UWM no longer pre-certifies CEUs for Ministers and LUTs. The UWM Eastern Region has designed and is offering sessions which we believe are CEU worthy and in relevant areas such as inclusivity, ethics, ministry operations, methods of teaching and self-care practices. Ministers and LUTs are required to track and document their potential CEUs and submit them yearly with their annual report. Please maintain copies of all registration confirmations and payment receipts for your records.
