The Northern Lights team is delighted to announce that Comox Valley Unitarian Fellowship in British Columbia has been awarded the next Northern Lights Call. The Fellowship will ask Northern Lighters to help them extend professional religious leadership for an additional year so that they can undertake their most ambitious growth project yet: moving to weekly Sunday services.
Comox Valley’s project grew out of a “leap of faith” in the spring of 2012, when the congregation voted to pursue a quarter-time consulting minister. They secured the services of the Rev. Meg Roberts, and the results were so clearly beneficial that they applied for a Sharing Our Faith Grant to support a second year.
In the past two years they report growing “tremendously” in organizational strength, as well as seeing growth in numbers.
