WHEN SHOULD I CALL ON 

A GOOD OFFICER?

 

The first answer to this question is ‘sooner rather than later.’  Call on a Good Officer whenever you feel you could use their counsel. What follows are specific situations where a Good Officer could provide assistance.  This list is not exhaustive, but illustrative.  

 

  1. Negotiating a Letter of Call: A Good Officer can provide a ‘model’ call letter and help you negotiate a fair call letter.

  2. Mid-ministry Assessment and Re-covenanting: A Good Officer can help their colleagues in negotiating the form of such an assessment and in re-covenanting for their ministry in it’s wake.

  3. Responding to Tension in a Minister-Institution Relationship: A Good Officer can be present to their college at the beginning of trouble or tension with their institution.

  4. Responding to Conflict in a Minister-Institution Relationship: A Good Officer can be invited in by a colleague to assist when conflict arises with their institution.

  5. Negotiating a Resignation in a Minister-Institution Relationship: A Good Officer can aid a colleague when negotiating a resignation from an institution.

  6. Assist in Covenant building between colleagues: A Good Officer can assist ministers serving in the same congregations or different congregations build covenants sufficient to support their ministries as well as their collegial relationships.

  7. Assist in Re-Covenanting and Relationship Re-building between colleagues: A Good Officer can assist colleagues re-covenant or re-build a healthy relationship after tension or conflict.   

  8. Assist when Relationships are strained between Ministers and bodies of the UUA: A Good Officer can assist a colleague who find him/herself in some tension with another instrumentality of the UUA, chiefly the Ministerial Fellowship Committee or the Department of Ministry and Faith Development.
