Welcome! The Diocese of Baton Rouge Universal Life Church welcomes you to
the growing fellowship of Universal Life Church Ministers serving
throughout South Louisiana.
The Diocese of Baton Rouge is an association of ULC ministers established
for the purposes of providing assistance to our ministers in their
activities in the church and the community, promoting the growth of the
Universal Life Church, and providing an opportunity for fellowship.
Among the many services of the diocese is the providing of necessary
documentation for our ministers as may be required in their ministry.
Other diocese services include the recordation of new ordinations and
special titles with ULC International Headquarters. Also, the diocese is
authorized to obtain congregational charters and help all who are
interested to set up and maintain a Universal Life Church. The diocese
provides general administrative support for local ministers and
congregations. Additionally, all ULC courses and study materials are
available through the diocese office.
One of the most far reaching diocese ministries is the River Parishes
Office of the Universal Seafarers Mission, a chaplaincy bureau founded in
1991 to serve the crews of the seagoing vessels on the Mississippi River
from Baton Rouge to New Orleans. Other activity includes support services
to ULC congregations active in local or regional ministries.
For those with computers and modems, the diocese operates an outreach
computer bulletin board system in conjunction with CompuChurch which
connects ULC ministers worldwide on the growing "information
superhighway." A fine group of active ministers exchange on-line
communications there. Automatic registration for new ministers is
available, and church information files are readily accessible.
The Baton Rouge Bureau of the Universal Life Press edits and transmits
church news and articles of interest from local reporters to the world
headquarters of the church, and publishes those articles online in the
CompuChurch computer network.
There are many active ministers in the Diocese of Baton Rouge, Archdiocese
of Louisiana, with many of worthwhile projects underway. The Diocese
stands ready to help and assist you in your ministry. Feel free to contact
Bishop Jennings with any questions or ideas. Remember, we are ONE church.
We are growing every day and are eager to help you in any way possible.
