Meeting the Five Areas of Ministry

Administration: A Candler student will be able to experience what it is like to function effectively within the multi-staff institution with a policy-based governance style context. 

Liturgy (Worship and Preaching): A Candler student will learn what goes in to creating a Sunday worship experience in a large congregation and with a circular ampitheatre. A Candler student can learn how to craft and perform top notch sermons for services. 

Mission and Outreach: A Candler student can participate in an existing program or develop their own initiative.

Pastoral Calling and Congregational Care: A Candler student can participate in the program and find ways to develop it (and in this way experience what it is like to introduce change into a congregational program).

Teaching: UUCA's religious education program is moving towards a lifelong learning and growth model, in which the focus is the spiritual growth and development of all people, from cradle to grave. A Candler student can participate in this evolution and help make it happen.
