Worship Leaders & Chaplains at General Assembly

Worship Leaders

Each year, General Assembly (GA) attendees enjoy some the best worship experiences the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) has to offer, from award-winning sermons to rousing celebrations of spirit and song.

The UUA Administration, GA Planning Committee, as well as the Unitarian Universalist Ministers Association (UUMA) and others extend invitations to our ministers and lay leaders, as well as interfaith leaders, to preach at General Assembly.

Those interested in Youth and Young Adult worship leadership and chaplaincy positions can apply through the Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministries. The Youth Caucus and the Young Adult Caucus ( have open application processes for worship coordinators of their respective caucuses. These Caucus worship leaders also help plan the Synergy worship service and often invite other youth and young adults to be participants, speakers, and more.

Numerous sermon awards and scholarships are available, from the UUMA, Commission on Social Witness (CSW), Interweave, and others.

General Assembly Chaplains

The General Assembly Planning Committee (GAPC) is committed to providing a rich and rewarding experience to all attendees at General Assemblies. As a part of this commitment, the General Assembly Planning Committee is funding GA registrations for five volunteers selected to serve as GA Chaplains. These individuals must be ministers in final fellowship with the Unitarian Universalist Association Ministerial Fellowship Committee (MFC) and in good standing with the Unitarian Universalist Ministers Association (UUMA), who have excellent pastoral skills and bring knowledge and skills in both anti-oppression work and cultural sensitivity.

Applications for 2014 GA Chaplain positions will be posted in November.
