Discover Unity Church of the Hills
At Unity Church of the Hills (UCOH), love is present in everything we do. Grounded in the teaching and demonstration of Unity principles and living our mission, vision and values, we strive to create a sense of belonging and home for all.
Founded in 1995, UCOH is a large and growing New Thought spiritual community led by an extraordinary staff and Board of Trustees who, along with our programs and volunteers, are the heart of our church. Throughout our 25-year history, UCOH has been wholly dedicated to the transformation of individual lives through spiritual growth, education and community service. We serve and support a varied congregation of all ages with a focus on belonging and acceptance of everyone. Though we traditionally offer three services, we have shifted to two in our current virtual environment. You can find past services and other videos on our website, faceboook page and/or youtube page.
Through a variety of programs led by staff and our amazing volunteers, UCOH supports our active youth ministry, our large community garden, in-reach and outreach ministries serving our community and community-run programs, and dozens of other events and programs. Our commitment is to support varying paths of spiritual development for everyone we encounter.
Our Wee Wisdom and Youth and Family Ministry support our younger groups while our adult population is supported through our Men’s Fellowship, Whole Hearted Women’s Group, Spirit Circles, Rainbow Fellowship and other small groups. We would also like to proudly highlight our established and nationally recognized Music Ministry, our large team of Prayer Chaplains, and numerous Licensed Unity Teachers.
Our expansive nearly 15-acre campus in north Austin includes a 500 seat sanctuary, an outdoor pavilion, a metaphysical bookstore, labyrinth, recently dedicated community garden, and numerous classrooms for both youth and adults across two buildings.
Our Vision in Action
Guided by Spirit, in 2018, Unity Church of the Hills undertook an extensive visioning process to clarify our way forward. This included establishing a 5-year strategic vision to provide a cohesive framework to guide our annual planning.
While certainly much has changed since then, we are still focused on serving the UCOH community through our four pillars of: 1) creating an engaged community of service; 2) supporting transformational programs; 3) nurturing ongoing creativity and renewal; and 4) fostering sustainable operations. Underscoring this vision, love and acceptance are the DNA that permeate everything we believe and do.
Ranked third among the nation’s best places to live and one of the healthiest cities in the country, Austin and the Greater Central Texas region is a fantastic place to live. The city is a vibrant music and arts community, known as the Live Music Capitol of the World. You can learn more about the place we call home at the Austin Chamber of Commerce website.
For those who feel led to apply for this divine appointment, please see the job posting on the Unity Worldwide Ministries website. As captured in the listing, “UCOH traditions have steadfastly placed God first in the service of truth, while encouraging and empowering our diverse, inclusive community to celebrate life in all its manifestations. Our new Senior Minister must embody these same values, while simultaneously inspiring a bold, new future vision that builds upon UCOH’s historical traditions. The right and perfect candidate would be a dynamic, motivational speaker and inspirational teacher with demonstrable spiritual maturity, emotional intelligence, and grounded leadership skills. While prior UWM ordination, administrative and financial management experience are a plus, they are not necessarily required.”
