Please visit the Southern Region website for up to date information on events in the Mid South region. The regional site is a work in progress, as we find the best way to streamline our work as a region while honoring the hard work and interests of the districts we serve. If there is something you feel would be valuable to other Southern Region UU leaders, please share it with our regional webmaster.
Proposed Governance Changes
Please click here to learn about changes in district governance proposed by your SWUUC Board, in collaboration with UUA and UUA Southern Region staff.
Regionalization of Southern Districts
The Florida, Mid-South, Southeast and Southwest Districts’ staff team including Congregational Life Consultants (known as the “Halleluujah” staff), District Administrative Staff, and Congregational Leaders who are Consultants have been combined to provide deeper and better resources for all of our 219+ congregations in 13 states, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Republic of Mexico. The UUA is committed to to providing equitable and effective allocation of resources between congregations by better distributing existing personnel. Learn more about this change and the Southern Region by downloading the brochure below.
...the First Unitarian
Universalist Church of Houston (Texas)! They have requested the grant
for the purpose of: Creating a Multi-site Church – joining the
congregations of First UU Houston, Northwest Community UU Church, and
Thoreau UU Congregation, into one church, three campuses.
NW and Thoreau UU have experienced significant shrinkage in the last few years due to various difficulties. First Church will help ensure that they have (respectively) quarter-time and half-time minister, programming, support, and reliable, quality worship services, as well as administrative support. The funds received would be used towards the cost of additional minister, and publicity for the kickoff of this new venture in growing UUism.
Nominate yourself or your best and brightest youth leaders to be the Youth Observer onthe UUA Board by April 23!
