Values
Values: What timeless, transcendent qualities of our religious community will we carry
forward to guide our future?
Mission: As we work to embody our values, what overarching purpose calls to us? What
overarching difference are we here to make in the world and for whom?
Ends/Vision: In advancing our mission, what specific, more measurable differences will we
make, for whom, and at what cost or priority during some specified time in the future?

UU Congregation of Binghamton
• From Nominating Committee to Leadership Development Team
Different Levels of Commitment
in Our Congregations.
1. Staff: paid staff and leaders with “high
commitment” who hold themselves
accountable to the congregation’s mission
2. Committed: leaders and volunteers who
care enough about the mission or the
institution to help keep the church
functioning by filling needed roles
3. Belong: members or pledging friends who
attend worship and some programs and
volunteer at various levels. May need
some attention around mission and
discerning their own gifts/passions.
4. Interested: occasional attendees to
church programs who are still in
discernment.
5. Oblivious: people in your community, or
who may stumble across your website or
attend a program held in your building

LOVE REACHES OUT
1. Divide yourselves in groups of three.
2. Decide which role each of you will use.
3. Each group should have one of each of these three roles:
• Greeter
• Building and Grounds Chair
• Worship Leader
4. Discuss:
What is one way that you would serve the mission
“Love Reaches Out”?

• Not to “prove value” as a supervisory tool
• To foster growth in both the organization
and the leaders
Does the measurement
have a meaning that
supports our mission?
Measurement of Ministries
• Vital Signs / Dashboard Indicators
– Compare from year to year
– e.g. weekly attendance, pastoral visits
• What has “Oomph?” What is stale?
Individual Assessment
• What about the ministry are you
passionate about?
• What skills do you need to serve better?
• Are you still clear about your “portable”
mission statement?” Is it still useful?
• Do you have the resources needed for
the ministry?
