Ministerial Preparatory Program classes (1st Year/S.E.E.) can be taken for credit or audit. Ministerial Studies Program classes (2nd & 3rd year) are available for students accepted to the Admissions Path or for anyone needing CEU credits.
Kudos to Rev. Karen for being elected in July to serve as Regional Representative on the Unity South Central Region board of directors.
Rev. Dr. Jim Gaither is returning to UUMS to teach Introduction to Theology (BI-6006) during this Winter term. This is a recent change, so please sign up right away if interested in taking the class for credit, audit, or Continuing Education Units for credentialed leaders. Rev. Gaither has served in Unity churches for 13 years. He succeeded Eric Butterworth and was named “Pastor Emeritus” at the Unity Center in New York City. This signature class presents the basic categories of Christian and Unity theology, including basic ideas in “theology of pluralism” and “comparative theology” as it relates to religion and spirituality.
Thank you Rev. Gaither!
