Meet Our New Minister, Rev. Lauri Gist

It’s official as of April 1st. Rev. Lauri Gist joins the staff as senior minister at Unity of Ocala. We are delighted to have found the perfect person for our ministry. Lauri comes to us with a strong background in foundational Unity principles and much experience having served as senior minister at one of our sister churches, Unity of Citrus County. This closes our previous chapter of going 11 months without a minister following the retirement of Rev. Prentiss John Davis. We are proud to say that we made it work. It was thanks to so many talented Unity ministers, and special guest speakers that helped to fill our pulpit on Sunday mornings. We are particularly grateful to Rev. Gay Lynn Grigas who helped us out on so many Sundays and member Janice Puta who gave of her time and spiritual talents when ever asked. Please make a point to visit us and see for yourselves why we are so excited to have Rev. Lauri at the helm.
