Young Adult Ministry

The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) embraces a vision of young adult ministry that is as diverse as the young adults we serve. As Unitarian Universalists (UUs), our young adult programs must be grounded in the hopes and needs that young adults articulate as they move through their transitions, and programs will change as the needs of young adults change. Young adults represent a tremendous opportunity to expand our faith’s ministry through new approaches, forms and identities.
