Regardless of the context in which they serve, whether in parish or community settings, religious professionals are expected to "do it all." Along with the call to provide moral, ethical, and pastoral leadership, we are also asked to meet the demand to manage and administer the organizations that we lead. Indeed, an Auburn Center study of new parish ministers found that they felt underprepared to meet the complex management skills of a congregation. Leaders of secular nonprofits are similarly rarely chosen primarily for their administrative skills. And yet, whether one is ordained as a minister or leads as a trained layperson, these are the skills that are necessary for the fulfillment of an organization's mission and vision. Congregations and non-profits require many of the same administrative skills, but they also differ in some key respects. In recognition of this fact, this one and a half credit course will be taught in two overlapping sections - one section for those preparing to lead congregations and one section for students preparing to lead secular or faith-based nonprofit organizations. Practical skills covered in the course include volunteer recruitment and supervision, personnel hiring and supervision, financial administration and budget preparation, building and property needs, culture changes, conflict negotiation through a pastoral lens and working with lay leaders. The course will allow students to consider administrative practices as a means for dismantling white supremacy culture. MALS required course. Required of students seeking UU ministerial fellowship.
