The purpose of the Church Consultant is to be available to our member ministries and ministers to communicate information from the Region and from Unity Worldwide Ministries (UWM). The consultant supports, educates, and brings people together to share their gifts and ideas with each other and to be the first responder in times of need in the ministry. The Eastern Region Church Consultant also facilitates mentoring for new ministers in the region, Healing our Past/Creating our Future, Visioning, and Spiritual Gifts Workshops. The Church Consultant supports ministers and ministries as they move through the challenges of forming, growing and leading their communities.
As the Church Consultant for the Eastern Region I am the connecting link between the Eastern Region and Unity Worldwide Ministries. My role is two-fold. I am the Church Consultant as well as the Regional Representative. I am here to serve you and your ministry in any way that I can.
When would it benefit you to contact me?
- When there is a question regarding policy either at the region level or the International Association level.
- When the ministry is making a change in its spiritual leadership.
- At the first sign of “dis-ease” in the ministry.
- Any questions regarding ministry that the by-laws and/or policies do not address.
- When the ministry is ready to build capacity for clarity, focus and intentionality (see training modules below).
In essence I am the front line “go to person” representing your ministry in the Eastern Region. I am the resource person. If I don’t have the answer, I will get it for you or
direct you to where it might be found.
