We provide services, support, publications and programs for visionary spiritual education and leadership development in youth and family ministry. Our desire is that you, a youth ministry leader, have the resources you need to create a dynamic and caring environment where young people can safely explore their Christ-nature and express their full potential.

We look forward to supporting you. Don't hesitate to call us at 816.524.7414 or email our International Teen Ministry Coordinator, Rev Jane Simmons, Jane@unity.org. Sign up to receive The Path, our bi-weekly e-newsletter. We share resources, curriculum announcements, and timely information.
