mwls classroom 2016The MWLS - Adult School program includes UU history and theology, leadership, group and system dynamics, and developing and sharing personal belief statements. In collaboration with Youth Leadership School, students explore, prepare, and present memorable and meaningful worship. All of these elements are essential for today’s congregational leaders.

The program is designed to provide insights, confidence, and enrichment for each participant’s congregation, work, and personal life. Participants explore alternative ways of looking at issues and finding solutions to problems through intense workshops, discussions, intimate small groups, and personal theological exploration.

The week is intense, with little free time, filled with intellectual and emotional rigor.

Graduates return with new skills, materials, ideas, resources, and connections to enhance their leadership effectiveness.

Led by lay and ordained staff with a deep understanding of UU congregations, a combination of lectures and small group encounters heightens understanding and the ability to navigate group process.
