How do things work?

The Starting Place is UUSM Governance

  • The Congregation is the ultimate authority at UUSM. It elects the Board members and may call or dismiss settled ministers.
  • The Board of Trustees is responsible for the long-range life of the congregation.
  • Operations is responsible for the day-to-day tasks and coordinates other committees to further the congregation’s stated purposes.
  • The Staff, Board, and Congregation work together to further the aims of our congregation.
  • The Lead Minister is a well-trained professional who has been called to lead UUSM.
  • Paid UUSM Staff members are also professionals who have the congregation’s best interest at heart
