Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees is responsible for upholding the spiritual purpose of the ministry and the highest interest of the membership. In this regard, the Unity of Walnut Creek Board operates differently than any other board you know of. The Board of Trustees is committed to holding the vision of God’s good for this spiritual community and every person in it. 

Made up of nine elected members and the lead minister (see pictures below), the Board meets monthly, usually on the 4th Wednesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. in Room 3. All are welcome to attend. Meeting minutes are posted on the internal Unity Connects or may be requested from the Board president. The minutes include the monthly financial report from the treasurer.

The year next to each name is the year that member's term ends (as of December 31). Advisors serve only for the calendar year in which they are appointed; the term ends on December 31, regardless of how long they have served.
