About Unity of Roanoke Valley

Unity of Roanoke Valley was founded in 1971 by the Revs. Alan and Kathryn Rowbotham.

Our church sits on 26 acres that include a labyrinth, playgrounds, walking trails, gardens and picnic area.

Our Mission
We are a vibrant, loving, spiritual community demonstrating Christ consciousness, embracing diversity and inspiring personal transformation.

Our Vision for the World
Centered in God, we celebrate a world of love, peace and abundance for all.

Our Focus
Empowering people to make positive changes in their spiritual lives and in the world. 

The foundation of this church is prayer. Our minister, the Rev. Linda Taylor, is available for prayer support, as are our licensed Unity teachers and Unity prayer chaplains.

Transformational classes and seminars provide many opportunities for spiritual growth and fellowship at Unity of Roanoke Valley, and all are welcome to attend. We offer a wide variety of classes and support groups.

Spiritual Education for our youth and teens is a high priority. Our dedicated volunteer teachers provide an environment in which children of all ages may understand and express their highest spiritual potential.

We host a Body Mind Spirit Fest each year where the community can gather to experience healings, readings, seminars, shop for metaphysical items as well as eco and green living items.

Meet the Minister

After years of forging my own spiritual path, I discovered Unity in 1998. The practical tools, inspiring messages and support in creating my own relationship with the Divine kept me coming back.

At my home church, Unity in Grapevine, TX, I expanded my Unity experience by volunteering in many areas in the church. In 1999, I received a clear call to ministry and began my journey taking classes, eventually becoming a Licensed Unity Teacher. In 2001, I joined the church staff as Assistant to the Minister. In 2004, I entered the Field Licensing Program and was ordained in 2008.

After serving Unity in Grapevine for close to ten years, it is with great joy and excitement that Spirit called me to Unity of Roanoke Valley. I invite you to discover the power of the Unity teachings. In addition to Sunday services, we offer classes, events and groups that open the mind and heart for personal transformation.

To serve in a diverse, inclusive, spiritually awakening community that is passionate about transforming themselves and their world through intentional spiritual practices.

To promote a loving, team-spirited environment that allows everyone to share their spiritual gifts, which grow and enrich both the community and the individual.
