Board of Trustees



Meet Our Board Of Trustees

Our Board members, leaders and caretakers of our ministry, share what Unity means to them.


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.

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.

KEN FICKLIN - Associate Spiritual Leader 

I joined Unity in 2005, moving to Redding in 2010. Unity is my rock from which I venture out into each realm of life. I became the Associate Spiritual Leader at UCIR in 2018. My background is in financial audit and accounting. I was a part time teacher in Southern California for high school and college students. I served on the board for a not-for-profit organization and as a city commissioner.


I first came to Unity in January 2017. I serve as Secretary on the Board of Trustees and volunteer with the Children's Ministry. I am the owner of Six Rivers Photography & Photo Booth and work for North State Parent Magazine as Advertising Sales Representative and in Special Projects. I attend Simpson University. I’ve been married to my husband Adam since August 2015 and our son Kingston is five years old.

KAY PIESER - Treasurer

My life has been with Unity! As a girl, I participated in YOU (Youth of Unity).  As a young mother, our family attended Unity, and I was a founding member of Unity Church in Redding. We have gone through ministers, name changes, and buildings, and I have been there through all of it. I’ve done almost everything to do with the church and held all board positions. I love my Unity and my Unity community. Oh, God is so good! I am so glad you, who are reading this directory and you, who are in this directory, are a part of our church. Welcome and thank you!
