STAFF Benjamin Maucere 2016Welcome to First Unitarian Church of Cincinnati!


In this urban Unitarian Universalist religious community we celebrate and support one another on our spiritual and ethical paths. We work for justice, dignity, and respect for the web of life.

We do this in many ways. We come together for social activities and for social justice work, for worship services and small group ministries. We share joys and sorrows and care for one another in times of need. We offer opportunities for religious growth to children and adults. We have conversations about things that matter.

Unitarian Universalist congregations are not about telling you what to believe, but about being a resource to help you to develop, deepen, articulate and put your own religious convictions into action in the world.

We invite you to attend a 10:00 Sunday service to see if this might be a religious home for you!

What's an Accredited Interim Minister?


"Accredited Interim Minister" is the designation by the Unitarian Universalist Association that denotes a minister specifically trained to help congregations review and revitalize their operations. In addition to carrying out the normal responsibilities of congregational ministry, including worship and pastoral care, ministers with this designation possess specific skills in helping congregations to address five developmental tasks for congregations in transition:

· Claim and honor its past and engage and honor its griefs and conflicts

· Recognize its unique identity and its strengths, needs and challenges

· Clarify the appropriate leadership roles of minister(s), church staff and lay leaders and navigate the shifts in leadership that may accompany times of transition

· Make appropriate use of regional, UUA and other outside resources

Proudly come into possession of a renewed vision and strong stewardship, prepared for new growth and new professional leadership, ready to embrace the future with anticipation and zest.
