Unity in Fort Wayne began as a result of a railroad mail-car attendant discovering the Daily Word magazine while passing through the mail car.
In 1939 William Sullivan, that railroad worker, and a small group of friends met in the Old Wayne Hotel and held services under the name Unity Church of Christ. The first minister was Rev. Frederick Andrews.
The present church was built in 1964 and another expansion was added in 1987. The church was renamed Unity Christ Church of Fort Wayne under the leadership of Rev. Claudette Farone.
In 2011 we began doing business as Unity of Fort Wayne Spiritual Center to reflect the focus of our Mission Statement:
Practical Spirituality for Empowered Daily Living.
Unity of Fort Wayne Spiritual Center is a spiritual home, helping people live healthy, prosperous and meaningful lives, knowing that prayer works. We empower our members to reach for their highest-good through the Sunday message, classes, Love in Action volunteer programs, and workshops. We are grateful members of Unity Worldwide Ministries.
In July 2012 a Transitional Minister Specialist, Rev. Barry Vennard, was hired as minister of UFW. Through his serving UFW we will see where we have been, where we are, and how to plan for our future.
In 2013 our Vision and Mission Statements were changed to reflect a world being transformed in spirituality.
Vision: A world Transformed Through Shared Spiritual Awakenings
Mission: To cultivate leadership and connections that support spiritual awakening and transformation.
