Are there resources for a new Administrator?

The mission of the Office of Church Staff Finances (OCSF) is to equip congregations for excellence as employers and their staff for financial competence and well-being. In support of that mission we have a wide range of support resources to offer.

The Congregations as Employers page, along with the the Salary and Payroll Resources page, are two excellent sources of guidance. One of our most popular resources is the Benefits Tune-up Workbook, designed to help congregational leaders understand our benefit plan rules and ensure compliance. OCSF also produces a monthly newsletter that many administrators find helpful.

Finally, we recommend the Association of UU Administrators (AUUA) at to all new administrators as a great way to connect with colleagues at other congregations.

And we always invite you to reach out to the Compensation Team by emailing with any questions you may have!
