DLRE Sought in SF Bay Area
Mt. Diablo Unitarian Universalist Church (MDUUC) is a vibrant and growing congregation in Walnut Creek, California. We are 500 active folks seeking a UU-credentialed religious education professional to help us thrive in the exciting East Bay area near San Francisco.
Our lifespan program currently includes:
- Religious education for children and youth redesigned by an accredited interim DLRE
- A long-standing commitment to Our Whole Lives (OWL) programming for all ages
- A monthly Children’s Chapel program
- Adult religious education, including innovative programming for our eldest elders
- Support from the Ministry team.
This within a context focused on multicultural and multi-generational growth, living our values through social justice and providing leadership opportunities for our youth through many avenues.
Walnut Creek is nestled in the coastal hills of the East Bay. It is a crossroads within an hour’s drive of San Francisco, Napa Valley, Silicon Valley and the central valley’s Delta area. Excellent schools, mild weather, myriad cultural activities and protected natural open spaces are all available in this (slightly) more affordable end of the highly sought-after San Francisco Bay Area.
