Personal & Spiritual Development

Want to Become a Worship Associate-Apply by March 31

Worship Associates help lead our Sunday worship services, collaborating with the ministers to reflect on meaning, purpose, and the life of the congregation. Worship Associates help develop Sunday themes for worship in monthly meetings with the Ministers and Music Directors. At these meetings, we explore monthly themes like “Mystery,” and “Liberating Love,” and then identify topics for each Sunday service of the month.

To prepare Sunday services, individual Worship Associates work one on one with the ministers by selecting readings or telling a personal story related to the theme of the service. On Sunday morning, Worship Associates share their story from the pulpit. We train Worship Associates on story-telling, pulpit presence, and how to create a container for our community’s experience of worship.


We are looking for church members who:

  • are inspired by worship and want to contribute to the congregation’s depth of experience;
  • want to engage in philosophical and theological reflection about meaning and purpose;
  • have diverse identities, which this year particularly means young adults, newer members, and people of color;
  • have public speaking ability; and
  • are deeply committed to the church and its values.

SERVICE COMMITMENTS AND APPLICATIONS Please submit your application by March 31, 2024 through the website at: https://uumilwaukee.org/get-involved/worship-associates/ 

Worship Associates will begin planning worship at the required Worship Associate meetings on:

  • Sunday May 5, 2024, 1:00pm – 3:00pm, and
  • Sunday, June 9, 2024, 12:00pm – 2:00pm.

Worship Associates will begin serving at Sunday worship services in September 2024. WA monthly meetings are held on the third Sunday of each month after church, Sept through May. Worship Associates make a commitment to serve for two years, including during the summers, and to attend all WA meetings. Worship Associates work with the ministers to help lead worship about once every two months, in person at both the 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. services.
