Reverend Gloria Lilly- Holt, our Senior Minister, is a woman of great knowledge gained through experience and spiritual vision. The mother of six children, three sons, and three daughters, Rev. Gloria is dedicated to establishing and maintaining her relationship with and to God. Because she has an eclectic background; Baptist, Methodist, Catholic, and Pentecostal, her experience has provided a unique perspective. Unity, through literature, has been the unifying presence since her childhood.
Rev. Gloria joined Unity in 1994, and answered the call to ministry in 2003. A graduate of the University of California at Los Angeles, she holds a bachelor’s degree in sociology. A retired teacher, Rev. Gloria is a teacher in the Ministerial Education Program at Unity Village. As she says, “Teaching and music are my passions.” She also serves as a speaker for Unity communities in Missouri and Kansas, and as a co-minister for Soul Food Unity Ministries.
She has been the Senior Minister for Unity Southeast since 2012. Rev. Gloria ministers by sharing her story with others. She knows that a renewed mind transforms a life of despair. Rev. Gloria leads others not only by example, but by teaching God Given Truth.
IT WORKS IF YOU WORK IT!
REV. Randy Fikki
Ever since an early age, Randy has known his call was to be a spiritual leader. He was born in the small South American country of Suriname, located just north of Brazil nestled between the Guyanas. But at a young age moved to the United States, where he did all his formal education. At many points in his life, he would say, the time is to follow my heart is now, but countless schooling in Psychology, working in Education, starting and growing a few startups, providing for his family, and raising his two beautiful daughters were always his top priorities. Throughout his journey, Randy has been on fire about finding ways to take spiritual ideas beyond the traditional church setting and integrating them into everyday life. With that idea in mind, it became his quest to help other add these views and understanding of Spiritual Principles, and their powers to their lives. Randy has spoken, taught and ministered in countless venues and formats. Wherever he finds himself, he finds people ready to learn from him and with him.
“We are all connected, We may feel rise and fall individually, but we all can depend on the knowing that we are One Power and One Presence and that we have within us all the Divine Power it contains.”
In his quest to create a better existence, Randy has spoken all over the country, in front of tens of thousands of people, but you can see him right here on Patreon each and every week.

Humankind is both human and divine. Since all of creation began in the Mind of God, we, then, are first spiritual beings. That spiritual essence entered the realm of the physical, thereby, secondly allowing us to have a human experience. Somewhere in this process, humanity has fallen into a sleep and therefore must awaken to what I refer to as spiritual amnesia; we are in the process of “re-membering” our divine identity and heritage, while working toward the full expression of our divinity in and through our humanity.
Jesus is our Way Shower, our Example, and our Elder Brother. We are to become what he is by doing what he did. This is difficult for many to comprehend because it is such good news. Jesus is the prototype of the new race, demonstrating the full potential within each of us, through Christ. Jesus is the outward expression of the abundance of life that is available to all that “believe on [truly follow] him; greater works than these shall you do…” (John 14:12).
The celebration of what happened to Jesus over two thousand years ago, is an unfailing promise of new hope and life. Jesus arose triumphantly and victoriously, and as we follow him, allowing the mind of Christ to develop in us as it did in him, (Philippians 2:5) we too, will rise in triumphant victory. The Bible is the record, our story, of the development of man’s consciousness in the Mind of God.
