Employment and Transitional Services

 

Open Ministries are listed below.

A transition in leadership is often a tender time for both ministers and the communities they serve. We encourage you to reach out to Ministry Development as soon as you begin to consider this transition. We would be honored to assist you in discerning your next steps and in navigating this period of change gracefully.

We support and equip Unity leaders and spiritual communities through all aspects of the employment process. The job search timeline is included below along with documents to guide you through each step of this process. Please review this material and reach out to membersupport@unity.org if you have any questions. 

Please review employment related documents below:

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 We also encourage you to review the list of Suspended Ministers and Rescinded Ordinations.

Special Dispensation

UWM requires affiliated ministries to be under the leadership of a Unity minister. This ensures that the ministry is served by a well-trained professional who is grounded in Unity teachings. Sometimes a ministry is not in a position to hire a Unity minister. UWM's Special Dispensation process supports ministries in hiring someone who is not a Unity ordained minister while they prepare for an ordination path. Special Dispensation involves a three-way agreement between a leader, the ministry and UWM. The leader could be a Licensed Unity Teacher, someone from another faith tradition, or an individual with leaderhship skills that is interested in serving as a Unity leader.

Because Unity and Centers for Spitirual Living have similar theologies, we have negotiated a reciprocal employment and ordination policy with CSL. This reciprocal agreement is part of the Speical Dispensation Process.

If you believe that Special Dispensation might be a good choice for your ministry, please contact membersupport@unity.org to learn more about the process.

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