Meet Our Board Of Trustees
JERI ROITMAN – President, Head Usher, and Hospitality
I’ve attended Unity services for 17 years in California. What I love about Unity is the spiritual nourishment I receive. I look forward to each Sunday for the positive, uplifting talks and the warmth, kindness, and love from the congregants. It is a joy and pleasure to share my time and be in fellowship and service with like-minded people.
REV. CAROLYN WARNEMUENDE - Senior Minister
I feel honored to lead our congregation as our Unity Church in Redding senior minister. The opportunity provides a beautiful way to practice the principles that are the basis of Unity and to serve as a model of leadership for others. Supporting our congregation, Board, volunteers and all that we stand for is a privilege.
REV. KEN FICKLIN - Associate Minister
I joined Unity in 2005 and became the Associate Spiritual Leader at UCIR in 2018. Unity is my rock from which I venture out into each realm of life. My background is in financial audit and accounting. Additionally, I have been a teacher, a nonprofit board member, and a city commissioner.
I joined Unity in 2010. I was initially drawn to Unity’s spiritual community through taking “A Course in Miracles”. In 2011, I was guided to become a Prayer Chaplain. As well as serving as a Prayer Chaplain and Board member, Kathy works in the front office.
I began attending UCIR in 2013 and joined in 2016. As well as being a Board member, I serves as the facilitator for “A Course in Miracles” and our bi-weekly book group. Unity speaks to me because of its total acceptance of everyone. Unity lives up to its name.
I have had a lifelong involvement in the Unity movement. My wife and I were married, over thirty years ago, by Unity Pastors. Four doggies and kitty Cheery help take care of my home.
My career is highlighted by leadership positions with the federal government, a national youth serving organization, the YMCA and for fundraising consulting.
I joined Kay Pieser and her mother Eva Johnson in establishing Unity Church in 1984. I have served as the church musician since our beginnings and have served on the Board numerous times. I loves Unity because it gives me hope and purpose.
