Responding to needs expressed by members and the five year plan adopted in 2010, the Leadership Development Team provides opportunities for UFL members to learn about themselves as leaders, leadership in general, and UFL governance with hopes that those who take part will feel more comfortable about taking leadership roles and be more skilled when they do. The Team is organized around the functions to conduct the annual Leadership 101 class. These functions include student recruitment, class scheduling, curriculum development, logistics, teaching, and assessment. Members of the Team are graduates of MidWest Leadership School and/or UFL members with significant leadership experience in the congregation.
Members (2016-2017): Rebecca Gant (Leader), Bonnie Blosser, John Brewer, Debbie Russell, Curtis Russell, Valerie Roper, Jeff Lewis, Barbara Thompson, Shannon VanLandingham
