In September 2016, Rev. Prentiss Davis was invited to be a keynote speaker at a Unity conference in Kansas City. Against his better judgement he agreed to participate in interview done by Mark Hicks, the creator of the website www.truthunity.net. It turned out to be a wonderful look at our minister and how he got to the point in his life that brought him to Unity of Ocala with a huge bag of priceless experiences. You can view it in small pieces or in its entirety. Highly recommended. To view the interview click here.
