Welcome to the Liberal Religious Educators Association

The center of our work as religious educators is belief in the transformative power of educating through our Unitarian Universalist faith.

LREDA is an anti-racist, anti-oppression, welcoming, professional organization open to liberal religious educators and those supportive of religious education. LREDA promotes the religious growth and learning of people of all ages and advocates for and supports religious educators and the field of liberal religious education.

Welcome to the new LREDA.org!

For over 65 years, the Liberal Religious Educators Association—originally Unitarian Education Directors' Association (UEDA)—has worked to bring religious educators together for support, continued learning, and transformation. We welcome you to our newest tool for connection and support! LREDA members can login to visit a personal landing page, from where you can connect with colleagues in "My Community."  Here you can join or start a group, contribute to discussion the community forums, update your member profile, check up on upcoming events or past invoices, or view and search the Membership Directory.

Congregational lay leaders and staff can post employment opportunities, find resources outlining best practices, or purchase a LREDA membership list to aid your professional religious educator search.
