Support for the Mission and Values of First Unitarian Universalist Church of Houston and the Unitarian Universalist Association
The Unitarian Universalist Association is a progressive and historic religious denomination. While it is not generally required or expected that an applicant/employee identify as a Unitarian Universalist (UU) or be a member of a UU congregation in order to work at the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Houston, all staff members are expected to perform their job duties in accordance with Unitarian Universalist values, principles and mission. The following points, drawn from the Seven Unitarian Universalist Principles, are of particular importance for First Unitarian Universalist Church’s work environment and staff culture:
• The inherent worth and dignity of every human being: We affirm the need for a human-centered workplace that allows our diverse staff to flourish. We also understand that our wider culture and society oppresses and denies human dignity, and we seek to counter the effects of that oppression in our hiring and workplace culture so that each person feels whole and valued.
• Justice, equity and compassion in human relations, and the goal of world community with peace, liberty and justice for all: We speak openly and publicly of our support for social and political issues, including LGBTQ equity, racial justice, climate justice, gender equity, and reproductive justice.• The interdependent web of existence: We recognize that the liberation of all people is interwoven, and we work to counter patriarchy, white supremacy, colonialism, homophobia, transphobia, environmental exploitation, and other interrelated systems of marginalization.
People with disabilities, people of color, indigenous people, Hispanic/Latinx and LGBTQ candidates are encouraged to apply. First Unitarian Universalist Church of Houston is an equal opportunity employer.
