The Power of Focused Ministry Workshops

The Power of Focused Ministry

Join Rev. Shad Groverland, Executive Director of UWM, in a timely 1-day workshop designed for ministry leaders, future leaders, and those who train these leaders. The world of ministry is rapidly changing and there is a chance we could be left behind, unless we can acquire tools that will keep us current, relevant, focused, impactful and enjoying the work we do. Through presentation, group discussion, brainstorming and connecting with Spirit, we will learn these tools that create the foundation for a thriving modern ministry.


What previous attendees are saying about the workshop:

"This workshop is a game changer. It has given my board and me a clarity of direction that we have never had before."

"People in the business world pay $5,000+ for information this good."

"I wish I had been exposed to these ideas years ago, when I started my first ministry."

"I have worked in promotion for very successful ministries and this is exactly the information they used to get there."

About Shad Groverland

Rev. Shad Groverland was born and raised in Unity, learning Unity principles from his parents Rev. Jack and Norma Groverland. His passion for music production was ignited while serving in his parents’ church, which led him to a 25-year career in sound production and management in Los Angeles and Las Vegas. He was then called into ministry and attended the Unity Urban Ministerial School, receiving his ordination in 2016. He served at Unity of Las Vegas for five years before returning home to Unity of Boulder in Colorado, where he co-ministered with his sister, Syntysche, and father, Jack. He was hired at Unity Worldwide Ministries as Executive Director in October 2020. 
Rev. Shad’s Unity experience is vast and long-term. He has served as youth director, board trustee, youth camp counselor, youth and family team leader, and Next Generation Unity minister advisor. In 2018, he was appointed to the UWM Board of Trustees, and served as Secretary of the Board in 2019 and 2020. During his tenure on the board, Shad served on multiple teams focused on shaping the future of the Unity Movement, including the Focusing Forward Technology Team, the Convention Planning Team, Interim CEO Interview Team, and the HUG (Help Unity Grow) Team.
