The Many Faces of Shared Ministry

In October 2022, the HUUF congregation embarked on an innovative form of ministry. Two lay women were installed as a Shared Ministry Team. Amy Day and Bridgette Garuti had already proven their talents and dedication over years of serving the Fellowship. Their collaborative, non-hierarchical approach extends beyond themselves—it invites all HUUF members and friends to enter into the camaraderie and work of shared ministry.
In small groups, using our deep listening guidelines, we’ll examine what “minister” and “ministry” mean to each of us. These questions are offered as possible springboards for conversation: When you hear the word “minister,” what image immediately comes to mind? Are you participating in or even facilitating a small-group ministry at HUUF (a committee or discussion group)? Do you welcome being in an environment of shared ministry on all levels?
