The Nuts and Bolts of Church Work

November 13-15, 2009
Glen Lake Retreat Center, Glen Rose, Texas


This year we are offering six different tracks to choose from at the Southwestern Unitarian Universalist Conference’s Fall Leadership Training, led by nine talented presenters. Please browse the links above to learn more about the tracks and presenters, as well as other general information about this conference.

While this is a multi-generational event, we are not able to offer child care this year. We hope to do that in years to come and welcome your input and ideas on whether that would be helpful to you and your family.

The six tracks at the Fall Leadership Conference will meet separately but we will gather as a community for worship and for meals. Worship this year will be led by Susan Smith, our district executive.

Glen Rose Retreat Center offers a variety of housing options for SWUUC Fall Conference attendees. Glen Rose, Texas has other options available and is located approximately 40 miles southwest of Fort Worth. Go here for directions.

High school youth are welcome and encouraged to attend any of the 6 tracks and we hope to see youth in each. Youth will either stay with their family or, if attending with an adult advisor from their congregation, in two rooms of the small group lodge (separated by gender). Youth and adults attending with youth must fill out extra forms which can be found here, or at the end of the downloadable brochure. If your congregation wishes to send a youth leader without a parent or advisor, please call the district office to discuss options.
