Your Conference Committee has put together a program that aims to integrate all levels of the work we do. We’ll take care of business and learn new tools and techniques, but we’ll also enjoy more time together: to connect, to inspire, to share and be in prayer together, as well as time for personal renewal and meditation.

Who is invited to attend?  We envision all areas of Unity leadership coming together to share their insights and experience. Unity ministers both active and retired, spiritual leaders, board members, youth ministry directors and any other key leaders and volunteers. The conference program will include opportunities to learn from each other in discussion circles to support the various areas of your ministry.
