Universalist Christian Initiative

Reviving Universalist Christianity

The Universalist Christian Initiative is a new (2016) project to identify and create Universalist Christian resources, and to support those hoping to restore Universalist Christianity to institutional viability. To that end, we will also consider applicable models of ministry leadership and administration, inspired by recent developments in the technical and nonprofit sectors, and develop useful Universalist Christian resources for professionals, worship group and church organizers and those new to Universalist Christianity.

The director of the Universalist Christian Initiative is the Rev. Scott Wells. He is a Universalist Christian minister holding fellowship with the Unitarian Universalist Association and was formerly the pastor of churches in Georgia and the District of Columbia. Since 2003, he has written extensively on these themes at boyinthebands.com, and now at revscottwells.com. He lives in Washington, D.C. with his husband, Jonathan Padget.

Right now, if you are interested, please join our mailing list. We promise not to overwhelm you with mail, and we'll make it easy for you to leave if you change your mind. Also, follow the UCI on Twitter at @universalistci and on Facebook.

Creating Resources for Universalist Christianity

The first and most useful role the UCI can take is to prepare and identify resources for making Universalist Christianity applicable and understood. This will take a community, so we will also develop community standards, including how we work with and relate to one another.
