One of the most successful programs of the ICUU has been our Leadership Conferences. The model is simple: a faculty of trained leaders from around the world deliver a several day series of workshops in an area where our liberal faith is developing. Every effort is made to work with local planners to present a program that is sensitive to and appropriate for the culture or cultures of the groups involved.
Participants are gathered from several groups and often nations in the region. These participants are usually provided with financial sponsorship to some degree.
Topics typically covered include leadership skills, conflict management, worship arts and philosophies, and Unitarian and Universalist history and theology. Also included are shared worship opportunities and small group ministry circles. The days are long and full, but very satisfying.
