Our Chaplains:

  • Kevin Mann, Chaplain Team Leader

  • Tara Humphries

  • Casey Stainsby (Canadian Unitarian Counsel)

  • Arielle E


Our Chaplains are here to provide short-term pastoral care, the kind that gets you back together. If you are in need of long term care, a team of chaplains and any close friends you have at CONline 2 will work to help come up with a plan. 


If you need a chaplain, your first step is to either ask in the chat during all conference events, or out loud if you are in a touch group or workshop. There may be a chaplain present and they will likely catch your request. 


Second, reach out to Joe Chapot. You don’t have to say what your specific needs are, just request a chaplain and the message will be passed to the chaplain team ASAP.


Dealing with Conflict, Oppressive Language, or Bad Behavior

Conflict is when there is an interpersonal issue between two or more participants.
Oppressive Language is when someone says anything racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, ablest, ageist, or any other words that are intended to marginalized, diminished and dehumanize someone.
Bad Behavior is crude or inappropriate language, actions, visuals, or being a troll.

The Chaplain Team and CONline 2 Planning Committee have agreed to a three level system for resolving issues:

  1. The Community Deals with It - This community is full of big people who want to do the right thing, be great with each other, and live their UU values. That said, we're all human beings prone to screwing up. If there is conflict, the first step is for participants to resolve it themselves.

  2. Get a Chaplain - If someone is bigoted, or if a leader is being mean, get a chaplain involved who can mediate the conflict. This is especially the case if it happens in a very public way and we need to do the work of getting the community complete.

  3. Joe Chapot Brings the Staff Hammer Down- Finally, if the participants and chaplains can’t resolve the issue, Joe Chapot will get involved. CONline is ostensibly a program of the Young Adult Ministry Initiative, which is a program run out of UU San Francisco, and Joe Chapot is the staff person responsible for it. Basically, the buck stops with him. Joe has a lot of chaplaincy experience and training, and his commitment is to resolve the issues.

    If someone is not being responsible for their actions and behavior, then they will be put in time-out or, worst case, kicked out of CONline 2. There is no getting back in if you are booted. That is Joe's call, but he will absolutely take the counsel of the Chaplains before doing that.

    Truly if there are any issues that cannot be resolved on there own contact Joe. He is the bottom line for CONline 2.​

Finally, this is an unprecedented, highly experimental event. We have nearly two dozen staff people who have volunteered their time and labor to help make this happen. So please, be gracious, patient, and generous as we do this incredible event.
