Seattle Unity Church is an independent organization, as are all Unity churches and spiritual centers.

Unity Worldwide Ministries provides resources and support, but the decisions relating to each Unity church or center are independent.

Spiritual leadership, and leadership “overall” at Seattle Unity, is provided by Reverend Karen Lindvig, our revered Senior Minister. See Rev. Karen’s page.

The Board of Trustees, elected from our members, is responsible for the long-term well-being of the church. They thoughtfully oversee the high-level finances, purposes, and policies of Seattle Unity.
