The goal of administrative standards is to ensure the highest level of care in delivering services through United Church ministries. Accreditors with sector-specific knowledge and expertise conduct site visits and assess each ministry's ability to meet the various standards. Every ministry plays a role in shaping who we are as church and who we are as people of faith, and the accreditation process helps all of our ministries to reflect the best of The United Church of Canada.

Please see below for manuals and tools to help your ministry meet the standards. For Christian camp curriculum, please see InsideOut (published by Chalice Press).
