Employment and Transitional Services

During leadership changes, Member Services works with our member ministries and member ministers to create grace, ease and intentionality. 

Open ministries are listed below.

Employment Services

Please review our Minister’s Employment Manual for guidance throughout the employment process.

We support member ministers through reviewing resumes, preparation and evaluation of interviews, and background checks.

We support member ministries through all phases of the employment process.  This includes:

It is important that ministers and ministries use our employment services to ensure that credentials are current and both parties are eligible for employment. We also encourage you to review the list of Suspended Ministers and Rescinded Ordinations.

Unity Worldwide Ministries is an Equal Opportunity Employer and prohibits discrimination and harassment of any kind. Unity Worldwide Ministries is committed to the principle of equal employment opportunity for all employees and to providing employees with a work environment free of discrimination and harassment. All employment decisions at Unity Worldwide Ministries are based on business needs, job requirements and individual qualifications, without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, age, religion or belief, disability, medical history, genetic information, family or parental status, or any other status protected by the laws or regulations in the locations where we operate. Unity Worldwide Ministries will not tolerate discrimination or harassment based on any of these characteristics.

Evaluation:

Evaluation that is done well strengthens relationships, builds accountability and creates vibrant spiritual communities.  For this to occur, evaluation should look at all aspects of the ministry rather than just focusing on the minister.  For a brief overview of how to do this, we invite you to review Goal Focused Evaluation by Dan Hotchkiss at http://www.congregationalconsulting.org/goal-focused-evaluation/.

UWM has a number of evaluation tools to choose from.  We encourage you to connect with us so that we can collaborate with you in making this process beneficial to all. 

 

Leaving Gracefully

Transitions can be difficult for both ministers and the members of a spiritual community. We invite you to connect with Member Services for information and guidance on leaving gracefully. Contact membersupport@unity.org for more information on the following services.

"I am pleased to tell you that our Transition Team and the search process for our new minister was greatly enhanced through your support and the encouragement and guidance of Unity Worldwide Ministries (UWM).  We followed the UWM guidelines for ministerial search, hiring and contracting process closely and found it to be very helpful. Thank you for your kind assistance throughout. -Peace and Blessings, Karen L Miller, Chair of the UPH Transition Team-Unity of Palm Harbor"

Transitional Consulting Services

The period between ministers may bring a period of uncertainty. UWM certified consultants guide you through an intentional process to explore where you have been as a community and where you want to go in the future. See how Transitional Consulting Services can help your ministry.

 

Sabbaticals

Our Sabbatical Support Services provide information on minister sabbaticals.

We also post non-ministerial Jobs (for example executive directors, music directors or youth directors) upon request.

 
Employment & Ordination Policy for Centers for Spiritual Living Ministers Serving Unity Ministries.
 
As spiritual movements which both originated with New Thought, Unity and CSL have similar theologies, practices and a shared desire to awaken and transform human consciousness.  In view of this, we are committed to finding ways to collaborate with one another.
