The recruitment, training and support of professional leaders is concern of the NAUA.
We are developing a number of programs and services that we trust will be of benefit to ministers and thus to congregations that they serve.
Honoring the congregational freedom our religion is founded upon, NAUA serves as a clearinghouse allowing ministers and congregations in search to find each other. It is up to each congregation to determine the credentials and experiences they are looking for and to verify both. NAUA provides advice, resources and best practices guides for finding quality leaders for our congregations.
NAUA membership includes ministers with years of experience who are willing to provide guidance to congregations and fellowships regarding organizational matters and questions. (This service does not include individual therapy or counseling).
On the fourth Thursday of each month at 10:00 a.m. PST, NAUA ministers can attend a regular meeting meant to foster support, collegiality, and learning. Periodically, there are also longer ministerial gatherings that by provide unique programs, professional development and networking opportunities.
