How UUFA is Organized

Governance and Ministry

UUFA, a mid-size congregation, uses a ‘Governance and Ministry’ structural model developed by independent consultant Dan Hotchkiss, formerly with the Alban Institute. The Board’s primary responsibilities include setting policies, monitoring finances, stewarding buildings and grounds, and some employment oversight. The Board delegates to the Minister, Ministry Council, and Staff, responsibilities regarding programs and the daily management of the Fellowship. The Minister also serves as Chief of Staff.

Board of Trustees

Nine members make up the Board of Trustees, plus the Minister serves as an ex-officio member. Members serve three year terms, with the exception of the Treasurer and Secretary who may serve shorter terms.
