Policy Governance

The mission of First Unitarian Universalist Church of San Diego is to create community, to nurture spiritual growth, and to act on our values to help heal the world.

The Executive Team

Consisting of the Lead Minister, the Minister of Music and Worship Arts, the Assistant Minister, the Director of Operations, the Director of Family and Lifespan Ministry, Intern Minister and an appointed Lay Leader (two-year term), the Executive Team supports the congregation and the Ministry Teams. They make many independent decisions, such as handling the day-to-day administration of the church, reporting to the Board as necessary or as required.

The Board of Trustees

Approves the policies presented by the Executive Team, as long as they are abiding by the Staff Limitations and other goals as set by the Board. In this way, the Board is freed up to become a long-term visioning group, able to discern what goals or ends the congregation wishes to achieve. The Board will be able to monitor the progress of the congregation in achieving their goals. They will also monitor the performance of the Executive Team, in terms of their work towards the achievement of those goals.

Journey Toward Wholeness

At First Unitarian Universalist Church San Diego (FUUSD), Journey Toward Wholeness (JTW) focuses on dismantling racism, eradicating other oppressions, and on bringing about transformation through increased awareness. JTW is an initiative of the Board of Trustees. To find out more, go to our JTW page.
