Shared Ministry Structure

Shared Ministry Org Chart 2021 Update

First Universalist is a church of shared ministry where the Minister and the Board of Trustees are each responsible for parts of congregational life. Our Minister oversees and is responsible for worship, pastoral care, religious education, and social justice engagement. Our staff assists the minister in implementing these programs. The Board of Trustees oversees and is responsible for church finances, the upkeep of our physical spaces, and developing and growing our congregation.

To learn more about our shared ministry, the Board of Trustees meetings are open to all church members and friends. To find out when the next Board meeting is taking place or to add an item to the Board’s agenda, please contact our church office.
