Men's Fellowship

The Unitarian Universalist Men's Fellowship (UUMF) is an affiliated organization of The First Unitarian Universalist Church of San Diego. The goal of this fellowship is to assist men in their quest to discover who they are as men, sons, fathers, grandfathers, husbands, partners, and brothers.

UUMF 2017 Renewal, September 29-October 1, 2017 Camp Stevens, Julian, CA

Please mark your calendar now for the 2017 annual UUMF Fall Renewal to be held at Camp Stevens near Julian. This is a time for fellowship, relaxation, renewal and enjoyment of the easily accessible mountains in “back country” of San Diego County

The theme of our renewal this year, Facing the Other; Building Bridges over Troubled Water, addresses not only others we encounter with differing orientations and views in this marked polarized world in which we live, but also the other in more personal encounters of close family relationships, difficult work situations, racial and LGBT profiling, and other areas. The weekend will include workshops, deep sharing, music and drumming, silence, ritual, games songs, laughter, and great food all in the safe circle of our brotherhood.

The registration fee covers all meals from Friday evening through Sunday breakfast and lodging, but does not cover any other Renewal expenses. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to help with need based scholarships and/or extra renewal expenses. First time Renewal attendees will also receive name tag and T shirt. Returning attendees are asked to bring their name tag and shirt or order a replacement.

To register, please down load the flyer/registration form and mail it and check as instructed on the form. For information on scholarship assistance or for questions about this event, please contact Mike Dorfi at (619) 466.5952.

Our Mission

Our mission is to support men in the quest for lives of compassion, integrity, responsibility, and balance. We are a caring, intentionally diverse brotherhood, committed to social justice, and offering opportunities for intimate sharing, personal growth, and spiritual deepening.

Fourth Monday Discussion

On the fourth Monday of the month, interested men meet in Room 114 (usually) from 7:00 to 9:00 pm to discuss a wide variety of topics dealing with men’s issues. Most meetings begin with a check-in. These discussions and events/topics are announced via our web site and email to UUMF participants.

Support Groups

The Men's Fellowship currently has a dozen closed committed active support groups. They usually meet twice a month at members’ homes. The groups range in size from five to eight men. If, after becoming familiar with the Fellowship, you would like to consider membership in a group, please contact Armin Kuhlman, support group coordinator. These are not crisis groups and require a significant time commitment.

Steering Committee

The direction of the Fellowship and upcoming events are discussed and coordinated at regularly scheduled meetings of the Steering Committee. We work on the consensus model and welcome input from all who attend.  Kim Cohn and Fergal O’Doherty  are our current conveners. Please email them regarding the next meeting.
