About the Conference

About Minnesota Conference United Church of ChristThe Minnesota Conference United Church of Christ (UCC) is the state-wide organization that equips UCC pastors to lead, supports congregations, engages in transformative mission and witness, and guides youth and adults on their faith journeys.

We are welcoming of all people, regardless of race, age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, or political beliefs. Learn more about our Mission, Values & Priorities and What We Believe. You can also Find a UCC Church.

The national United Church of Christ is a diverse and welcoming community of nearly 1 million members across the U.S. We are forward-thinking and we are a church of “firsts.” We were the first Protestant denomination to ordain an African American pastor (1785), a woman pastor (1853), and a gay pastor (1972).

We advocate for justice and peace, embrace innovation, and offer extravagant hospitality to all who seek a genuine faith community. Whoever you are, wherever you are on life’s journey, we welcome you!
