Leadership School for Religious Educators

If ever there was an era for religious educators as leaders, we are in it NOW! And with it, after years of absence, comes the return of Leadership School for Religious Educators (LSRE). This year’s RE Week at the The Mountain we’ve brought together a stellar group of religious educators leading this groundbreaking conference.

Attendees will experience new “whole church” content such as:

   • Covenant Centered UU faith development

   • Systems Thinking (from a religious educator perspective)

   • Dimensions of UU Faith Development

We’re excited to welcome onsite Connie Goodbread, Co-Lead (Southern Region); Nancy Combs-Morgan, Congregational Life Consultant (MidAmerica & Southern Regions); and thrilled to bring in virtually Natalie Briscoe, Co-Lead (Southern Region.) In Dimensions of UU Faith Development, Natalie presents original material she’s authored which is groundbreaking in its application to our understanding of UU faith development and curriculum mapping.

We’re thrilled Christina Rivera, LREDA Board Secretary, will lead a session on religious educator advocacy. She’ll cover information such as the new UUA Compensation Standards and power mapping, shared with a lens towards power balances within staff groups and congregation.

The entire LSRE is committed to an experience that is grounded in our Unitarian Universalist faith by ensuring we build an active Anti-Racism, Anti-Oppression, Multi-Cultural community.
