UU Elevator Speech is part of the CORE Path of Faith Forward: From Visitor to Leader. It is a 3-session series that guides participants through developing a short speech about our Unitarian Universalist faith. It is called an “elevator speech” because, on an elevator ride when someone asks you “what is Unitarian Universalism?” you only have a short time to make a meaningful statement! This class helps participants feel confident about articulating Unitarian Universalism, empowering them and helping them feel ownership. it also prepares leaders to live and speak about their faith in the larger community!

What level of volunteer and professional staffing is needed to implement this?

UU Elevator Speech is designed to be facilitated by lay leaders in your congregation. The materials are very user-friendly - we've received this feedback consistently from UU congregations using Faith Forward materials! The facilitators do not need to be subject experts; it's more important that they know how to facilitate engagement with the content. It's a great opportunity for facilitators to develop and refine their own elevator speeches, and to learn from and be inspired by participants in the class!
