Welcome to a place of Healing

Rev. Bettse Bruich

Rev. Angela Newman

Rev. Dr. Walter Davis

Our Practitioners play a key role in our spiritual community at Unity Center of the Heights.  They not only hold the space of love and support during our services, particularly during our times of prayer and meditation, but also provide spiritual service to our community.  They are available for prayer and counseling after the Sunday morning service, personal coaching and visitation to members in the hospital, those with health challenges, and to those we haven't seen for awhile.  Their presence and support are a great part of what makes our spiritual community work.

Get to know a little about our Practitioners and then come in and meet this marvelous group of people in person.

As it says in A Course In Miracles:
"A teacher of God is anyone who chooses to be one.  His qualifications consist solely in this; somehow, somewhere he has made a deliberate choice in which he did not see his interests as apart from someone else's.  Once he has done that, his road is established and his direction is sure.  A light has entered the darkness.  It may be a single light, but that is enough.  He has entered an agreement with God… He has become a bringer of salvation.  He has become a teacher of God." - M1

If you have a desire to participate the Unity Center of the Heights Practitioner Program, please let us know.  As you see, it also serves those who simply have a desire to deepen their knowledge of metaphysics.  We have chosen the course work offered by the University of Metaphysics (U of M) founded by Dr. Paul Masters, a school that has been supporting metaphysical students for over fifty years, as the foundation of our Practitioner Program.  U of M has more churches around the world than Unity and Religious Science combined.  They have a low profile because they are neither a religion nor  a denomination.  Their position is that they will provide the metaphysical training and Spirit will guide the individual in the way He would have them go.  U of M’s most well known Doctoral graduate is Rev. Dr. Della Reese of Touched by an Angel.

The Practitioner training includes additional training that will be given at Unity Center by Rev. Karen Shepherd, our Head Practitioner.  In addition, the Practitioners also serve as a support group to assist those who are participating in the metaphysical training that’s offered by the University of Metaphysics as well as the in-house training. Whether you plan to participate in our Practitioner Program or your desire is to simply acquire the quality metaphysical training offered by the University of Metaphysics, this group is for you.
