Denominational Formation

Cathey Edwards
Director of Ministerial Formation Unitarian Universalist

Phillips Theological Seminary is located in the Southwest Conference of the Unitarian Universalist Association.

Our purpose is to grow and deepen the Unitarian Universalist community at the seminary and your time will be as meaningful and fruitful as possible.  For many decades, Phillips has been a graduate alma mater to several Unitarian Universalist ministers, lay leaders, and others within the faith community pursuing religious-based vocations.

If you are pursuing a degree, Phillips may be your sole destination to take your courses, or you may augment your studies with coursework taken at other seminaries. You may often apply Phillips courses to your degree work elsewhere. Courses in Unitarian Universalist History and Polity, as well as other courses of a broader nature, are taught at Phillips by UU clergy. Phillips has also worked with UU churches in the local community to provide educational opportunities and lectures.

Activities include opportunities for gatherings and meetings with UU ministers during each semester, working in relationship to the UUA's offices for seminarians or for any assistance you may need with your studies at Phillips, as well as participating in both Phililps activities and UU events. 

To pursue a ministerial fellowship, please consult with the Unitarian Universalist Association.
