Settled Minister Search 2020

 Settled Minister Search 2020

At the March 19, 2019 Board of Directors meeting, a vote was taken and passed to begin a search for a settled minister for the 2020 church year (start date of August 2020). As we begin the search process, this page will provide information and updates to the UUSG congregation. Questions, comments, concerns? Contact the Board of Directors at board@uusg.org.

Call for Nominations to the Search Committee:
The Board is now soliciting nominations from the congregation for members of the search team. Search members will be responsible for representing the best hopes and aspirations of our congregation to the UUA. Their efforts, and the participation of the entire congregation, will aid us in getting the best ministerial fit for UUSG.  

We are guided in this search process by our bylaws and UUA policies. To begin, we ask the members of the congregation, over the next two weeks, please submit no more than three names of fellow members for consideration. You may nominate yourself if you are interested. With each name you put forth, please include a statement outlining your reason(s) for nomination. Please include your name with the nominees list. Submit names to board@uusg.org or in a sealed envelope placed in the Board mailbox by Monday, April 8, 2019.

The Board of Directors will begin the process of tallying and selecting the seven people from the list of nominations at the next board meeting on April 9th.  All nominations will be confidential. As directed by our Bylaws, the Board of Directors will propose the list of selected individuals for a full congregational vote at our annual meeting, Sunday, May 19, 2019.
