Welcome Rev. James
Seattle Unity welcomes long-time community member and teacher Rev. James Tierney into the role of Director of Youth & Family Ministries.
A note from James:
"I am so happy to be back in youth ed. I have taught all ages and have enjoyed engaging with the kids and creating curricula, especially Harry Potter and the tapestries of world religions. We hope to tie our lessons loosely to Karen’s Tree of Life and future themes with the goal of fostering fun family discussions.
Our new kid space is wonderful, beautifully located with easy access to the patio and views of Denny Park.
Youth and Family Ministry is integral to our spiritual home. The kids bring energy, creativity, and friendship, and the staff and volunteers bring their whole hearts to keep everyone engaged, learning, and safe."
Rev. James Tierney
