Music Leader Certification
Share |

The Music Leadership Certification Program (MLCP) is a unique, three-year program that:

  • Summons music leaders to their calling of music ministry,
  • Enriches their service to Unitarian Universalist congregations, and
  • Enhances their professional perspective and skills.

Through the certification program, music leaders in our congregations develop a foundational understanding of three main areas of knowledge:

  1. Music skills and resources,
  2. UU heritage and values, and
  3. Leadership and interpersonal skills.

The Music Leadership Certification Program is administered by the Music Leadership Certification Committee (MLCC) of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA).
