What Is the UU Minister’s Search Template?

The UU Minister’s Search Template is a framework for creating your own online search packet. It is comprised of a theme with plugins that do much of the technical and design work for you. Your template will be fully responsive, so it looks great on mobile phones or tablets, and uses best practices for screen-readers and visual accessibility.  Search committees will be able to view and print your packet material right from your website.

The website is powered by WordPress, a free, open-source website creation tool used on millions of websites worldwide. Once you apply, you will have access to a blank template where you can begin the creation of your own online search packet.

Content, Menus, and Navigation Made Easy

The UU Minister’s Search Template is available with three sections of recommended content from the SETTLEMENT HANDBOOK for Ministers and Congregations – Transitions Office Unitarian Universalist Association January 30, 2013

Each section has several subpages offering space to describe your ministry, display photos, add video and audio. The Page-by-Page Guidance section of this site contains sample text and ideas for effective images. Read a complete list of the theme’s features.

Customize to Fit Your Needs

The content of your site and the menu are customizable, and you have a choice of color schemes. With the theme doing much of the design and technical work for you, and the user-friendly WordPress interface, you’re able to devote more time and energy to making your content shine: showing search committees who you are and why you would be a good candidate for their congregation.
