The paradigm for our ministry has shifted from that of a learned ministry to a learning ministry. Guidelines for this developmental approach can be found in the latest rubric of the seven ministerial competencies outlined by the Ministerial Fellowship Committee (MFC) of the Unitarian Universalist Association. MFC competencies include: 1) worship and rites of passage; 2) pastoral care and presence; 3) spiritual development and renewal; 4) social witness; 5) leadership and administration; 6) denominational service; and 7) future-oriented leadership. All seven areas will be addressed during the term. Upon completing this course along with CI 222J, students will have compiled a draft version of the packet they need to submit to the MFC for fellowshipping and UU ordination.
