Site Description

First Church Unitarian Universalist Church of Leominster is a vital and important downtown church. It's small but dedicated members come from a broad background theologically, culturally, ethnically and economically. The members dedicate vast amounts of time and energy to assure the longeivity of First Church. The minister is entering her 20th year and the church is focused on being an open, diverse, inclusive, anti-racist, anti-oppressive congregation. The church has had 6 students in the past 10 years and considers one of its ministries to be about developing ministers.

Stipend Expectation

This site does not meet the stipend expectation

Student Involvement

very involved in all aspects of ministry. Preaching, pastoral, teaching, social action and community involvement are part of the involvement. Also administration of a small congregation and attendance at all congregational committees and task force groups is welcome and encouraged. The site offers ample opportunity for direct experience. The church is involved in many community events so the opportunity for public ministry is high too. Eg. the church began the Martin Luther King, jr Coalition and a 15 West GLBTQ youth meeting place.

Commitment to Educating Ministers

Together with the student and the Teaching Parish Committee and the minister a learning agreement will be established that touches on all aspects of ministry. The mission of the Teaching Parish Site and Committee is to offer hands on experiences with the opportunity for theological and experiental reflection that will challenge and enhance a student.

Special Considerations

this is an ideal Unitarian Universalist 2 year internship site as well as a field ed site for Ants Students.

Comments

unfortunately like many small congregations this one largely made up of blue collar and social service workers the amount of income exceeds the amount of expenditures and though the willingness to be a field ed site is high the opportunity to meet the expected stipend is not possible. There is 1000. in the budget for this year
