Atlanta Unity Church, Atlanta, Ga., Chair
I love the Convention Ministry Team and I love chairing the team that has so many caring, creative and spiritual leaders on it. Thirty-six years ago when I was ordained, the convention team was the one team that nobody wanted to be on. How times have changed! Lots of people want to be on our team now.
This team is here to serve the worldwide Unity movement, by planning tremendous conventions, filled with great keynote speakers and workshops. What could be more fun and more helpful to us all?

It is an honor to serve on our convention team with people who are so aware, creative, and dedicated to success. It takes three years to manifest each convention. I enjoy our ongoing process of prayer and imagination.
Rev Lori Hisson
Unity of London, London, Ontario, Canada
For a number of years I’ve enjoyed the monthly creative planning calls of the convention team. What “juices” me most though is my role during convention. I’ve emceed a number of events, my favorite being when Michael Beckwith and Ricki Byers Beckwith were given an award. I remember standing on the platform and he took hold of my hand while he blessed our offering. Others sweet duties include blessing the chairs before each event and working with the vendors helping them with their needs. I love this team and am honored to serve on it.
