As Unity Church of the Hills enters its 25th year of ministry in Northwest Austin, we find ourselves in transition. Founded in November 1995, Austin’s premier church of practical Christianity and Unity teachings is just beginning the important search for a new Senior Minister. The national search process will begin in early 2020 and could take several months to complete.
In the interim, Unity Church of the Hills expects to offer a dynamic slate of speakers for Sunday services. In early 2020, we expect to retain a Unity Minister, professionally trained in transitional ministry, to be our temporary minister until the new permanent minister is identified and retained.
Over the nearly quarter-century of the ministry’s history, Unity Church of the Hills has hosted numerous nationally-known speakers, Unity and New Thought ministers, best selling authors, and award-winning musicians, along with teachers and healers representing a diverse array of religious and spiritual practices from throughout the world. Since late 2001, when Unity Church of the Hills opened its brand new, state of the art, 14.5 acre facility, internationally known speakers and teachers like Don Miguel Ruiz, Joe Dispenza, Rev. Michael Beckwith, Edwina Gaines, Joe Vitale, Bruce Lipton, Gregg Braden and Roger Teel, among many others, have graced UCOH’s blessed sanctuary with their powerful teachings.
Additionally, Unity Church of the Hills is blessed with a vital team of Licensed Unity Teachers, certified Spiritual Practioners, Chaplains well-versed in the practice of affirmative prayer, and community members professionally skilled in the full spectrum of healing, prosperity, creativity, metaphysical and practical Christianity teachings available. All of these and more are expected to keep the weekly Sunday services a dynamic, spirit led event throughout the transition as the search for the next Spiritual Leader for Unity Church of the Hills proceeds to its ultimate conclusion.
On top of all of this, Unity Church of the Hills features a world-class music team that makes each and every Sunday service a spiritual event worth experiencing week in and week out. For some, the music is the main reason they attend Sunday services with the powerful teachings of the weekly messages being a big spiritual bonus.
Unity Church of the Hills also has a vital children’s ministry, providing Sunday school classes for every age from Pre-K toddlers through high school, and is also home to a certified, licensed Wee Wisdom school. Additionally, UCOH’s Spirit Circle ministry facilitates quarterly, small group book studies in the homes of community members all around Austin throughout the year.
With regular and recurring classes and group meetings in everything from A Course In Miracles, The Artist’s Way, and The Quest, along with the core Unity teachings of Charles Fillmore, Emily Cady, Eric Butterworth and many others, Unity Church of the Hills is the perfect spiritual home for the sincere seeker of enlightenment and transformation.
At the heart of the community at Unity Church of the Hills, we are grounded and centered in the teachings of practical Christianity taught by our Master Teacher, Jesus. We believe there is only One Power and One Presence active in the Universe and in our lives, God, which embodies all that is good. Unity teaches that each one of us is created in the image and likeness of God, and therefore our nature is inherently good, as well.
Insofar as God is the Ultimate Creator, and we are each created in that image and likeness, then we too are powerful, co-creators of our own experience in this world. As Jesus taught, we teach that each one of us is filled with Christ potential, and that our work is to connect with and express our individual Christ Nature in all of our thoughts, words and actions.
To achieve and accomplish this expression, we actively practice silent meditation and affirmative prayer to connect with and affirmatively express our own individual authentic, Christ Nature. Everything that we do at Unity Church of the Hills is intended to facilitate this individual transformation and expression.
As dynamic as this description may seem, this only scratches the surface of the diverse vitality that is the spiritual community at Unity Church of the Hills. If you have been looking for a spiritual home and any of this resonates with you, then we lovingly invite you to join us for one of our three Sunday morning services held each week throughout the year, or sample any number of our classes, workshops and group studies held throughout the week.
We know that if you do, you are likely to have the same experience that thousands of our brothers and sisters have had over the past quarter century, and you could very well hear your own inner Christ voice gently speaking the words that so many of us have heard upon our own first visit to Unity Church of the Hills: You are home.
We look forward to meeting you and experiencing your own Christ Light right here in our spiritual community of ever expanding love and acceptance where lives are transformed.
