Spiritual Direction

There are many faith leaders, around the nation and world, willing to meet with you and provide spiritual direction. You may meet online or in person. They have many different backgrounds, come from many different organizations, and have various certifications. Profiles should indicate a faith leader’s preparation and they should present their documented credentials at or before your first meeting.

Hospice Care

Hospice and palliative care are often not seriously considered early enough. This extremely special care comes at a precious and sensitive time. Interview everyone who will care for your loved one and verify their professional credentials. The medical profession in the United States is philosophically wired to make everyone live as long as possible regardless of holistic considerations and the quality of life. Hospice can help discussions about which battles to fight and how to proceed if various scenarios develop. Care should always be personalized.

Funeral Service

If you have a need for a faith leader to assist with a funeral or memorial service then we would like to help. Our ministry works with faith leaders of various faith traditions. We have funeral officiants who assist with religious and non-religious services. If time is an issue we suggest immediately contacting several officiants in case your first choice is unavailable.

Baptism/Dedication

There are various times in life when people become dedicated or baptized into a faith tradition. Some people are baptized when newborn and choose a full immersion or “sprinkling” in adulthood. Some decide in their last moments to make such a dedication. Whatever your unique desire surrounding baptism or dedication our faith leaders are open to discussing the options and various theology.

Communion/Eucharist

Communion, Eucharist, or The Lord’s Supper can be provided for your special circumstance. Faith leaders are generally prepared to deliver this service to any location – home, hospital, nursing home, etc. – or provide it in their familiar sanctuary. Inquire about wine versus grape juice, if it is important to your own theology and experience.

Any Short Term Service

A faith leader making this offer is open to hearing any request excluding permanent hire. This may be a pastor starting a new role in a few months. It may be a military chaplaincy candidate, seminarian, or seminary graduate expanding her experience. Regardless, these faith leaders are often the most prepared to serve because of their open minds and spirits.

Confession

Confession has strict rules in some traditions and sometimes those rules bent in times of crisis. One of our faith leaders may be willing to travel to you immediately or receive you in their sanctuary. Ask for what you need and be as forthcoming as possible about your situation. We would like to help.

Guest Teacher

If you have a classroom that needs a special guest then we are your people! It may be Sunday School, Church School, a weekday class – children, youth or adults. It might be for one day, one month, or one weekend. We have specialists in many areas of contemporary society and sacred texts. We have masters and Ph.D. students. Seminary students and professors love to be guest teachers! And, especially for students, a little paycheck and experience are huge. They will rock your world.

Guest Speaker

Your special event needs someone special – and we’ve got that! Faith leaders and faith-leaders-in-training can blow your minds with what they know. I dare you to tell them, “Don’t hold back.” Or maybe you would rather they tailored their skills to meet your faith community where they are. Ask them to keynote retreats, preach when your leader is away, be on a panel, or teach for a series of weeks. Plan some joint events with other faith communities. Whatever you do, do something; your people need exceptional variations on occasion.

Visit (Home, Hospital, etc.)

Wherever you are, maybe you need a visit. Maybe you’d like a faith leader to visit one of your loved ones who is far from you. The visit may be to a home, hospital, assisted living, nursing home, or other community. Choose a faith leader who shares her credentials readily and with whom you are comfortable. We can discuss concerns, pray, or just check in. If communion or confession is anticipated please communicate ahead of time. We’re here.

Informal Conversation

At the heart of who we are is an effort to just “be there” for people. So we have a lot of, what we call, “coffee shop conversations.” Public spaces are neutral territory rather than the pastor’s office. You’re not in trouble and you are the one calling the shots (no pun intended). If you just need to talk or have a nagging question then extend invitations to as many of our faith leaders as you want. Talk to everyone. Careful though, the caffeine at your local shop could get you hooked.

Permanent Part-Time Hire

Faith leaders use UFL to fulfill their calling to serve immediately and also to secure permanent roles in professional ministry. Their profile should explain what roles they are interested in and qualified for. You may also wish to inquire with faith leaders who do not offer permanent employment just because they may not be able to say publicly that they are called away from their current ministry.

Pulpit Supply/Preaching

Is your preacher away? Need somebody to come stand in your pulpit and supply a “Good Word?” There may be preaching talent in your area that you are overlooking, especially if there is a seminary nearby. There may even be associate pastors in nearby faith communities that would like to preach more or “swap pulpits” occasionally. Those seminarians though, they will often drive quite far for the experience of preaching! And their professors all the more.
