In co-ministry, a clergy couple shares a single ministry position. As a clergy couple Rev. Anya and Rev. Scott will work together as equal colleagues, establishing a collaboration that is respectful and balanced. Still, it’s important to delineate areas for primary responsibility. Clear and specific communication channels and areas of accountability will prevent triangulation and confusion. The minister named as the point of contact for a specific ministry will be accountable for that ministry. It is understood, however, that the co-ministry team works together whenever necessary for the health of the congregation.
We have worked in consultation with the UUCM staff and Board to prepare a final Point of Contact chart. If you have any questions about how to read or use the chart, we welcome a conversation.
