Welcome to the
Continental Liberal Religious Educators Association (LREDA) 

Our understanding of vision is, “what we want to make real”,

with mission being, “how we’re going to get there”.

Our vision is that LREDA is creating a world guided by love, justice and equity through our mission of:

  • Advocating for and supporting professional religious educators
  • Advancing the field of Unitarian Universalist faith development
  • Engaging in the transformative power of shared ministry
  • Challenging systems of oppression

Welcome to the LREDA website! 

Since 1949, 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 website 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.

Are you interested in supporting the work of LREDA as we continue to leap into the future? Learn more about opportunities to serve, strengthening our Endowment, and the amazing projects funded by LREDA grants.
