"The best thing I ever did for myself and the Little Rock Church was to attend Dwight Brown Leadership Experience. DBLE taught me what a Unitarian Universalist church ought to be and do. When I came home, I could not help but measure our church's performance against what I'd learned. Now we have a good start on a new chapter in the life of our church and it is in large part thanks to DBLE and its vision of what a healthy church ought to be up and doing." -- Virginia Williams, past-president, Unitarian Universalist Church of Little Rock
What is a Dwight Brown Leadership Experience? It is a challenging, exciting, leadership development experience that will enrich the life of the participants, as well as enhance the sponsoring Unitarian Universalist congregation. Named after the District Executive who helped launch our first Leadership School, DBLE is designed to teach and reinforce skills and abilities for leaders and leaders-to-be in UU congregations. DBLE is offered as a Leadership School each summer as a 6-day, intensive program.
