Carly Borkoski
Ministry Administrator

Carly arrived at Unity Denver due to her strong connection to Unity values. Although she was not raised in faith, from a young age she found herself called to various religions, finding a sense of truth in each avenue she searched.
In her eyes, it is through connection that our individual and collective truths emerge. As a student in the Counseling program at Regis University, Carly regularly plays at the intersection of psychology, spirituality, and holistic wellness – purposefully crafting her life through the rhythms of the heart.
In her work at Unity and beyond, she aims to support individuals in the search for their part in the divine play, and in revealing the message behind life’s offerings. As Ram Dass once said, “We are all just walking each other home.”


Lisa Yelnick
Youth & Family Ministry Director

Lisa Yelenick began coming to Unity Spiritual Center in 1979. The Unity teaching strongly resonated with her then, and now, 43 years later, she continues attending classes locally and at Unity Village. Lisa began as a volunteer in the Youth Ministry in 1983 and has worked with all age groups. She began serving as the Youth & Family Ministry Director in 1995 and continues in that role today. 
She served as our “Unity South Central Region’s” Teen Ministry Consultant for 11 years. Lisa has raised her five children in the Unity Way from day one. This is one of her most favorite accomplishments. She has and continues to create curriculum that inspires fun and meaningful learning for the youth. Creating a safe and engaging environment grounded in unconditional love and recognizing the Christ Light in our children and youth is one of the pillars of the youth education program. Welcoming, training and serving alongside the youth education volunteers is a joyous endeavor.  Living the Unity teachings has expanded her understanding of what it means to be a holy child of God and even more deeply – that the light, energy and pure potential that is God is actively at work in and through her in every moment. We are all connected. We are One, individually expressing. These are the messages she strives to acknowledge, nurture and draw forth in the children. Growing in this awareness is essential to our future. Working at “ground level” with our youth is her great privilege and honor.

Kath Robinson started attending Unity Spiritual Center Denver when she and her family moved to Denver in 2016. As a licensed New Thought Practitioner since 2007, Kath provides a safe place where singers and non-singers alike can connect, heal and transform through the power of music. Her workshops, classes and private voice lessons, as well as her work as a soloist and backing vocalist are infused with deep spiritual practice and a love for creating community. Kath sang with ‘Igniting the Fire of the Heart’ here at Unity since 2017 with Marcy Baruch, Gayan Gregory Long and Ken Bernstein. Her album ‘Blessed be’ is a tribute to the beautiful blend of Gospel and New Thought music that she has shared with congregations at spiritual centers over the years.  Prior to coming to Denver, Kath was a soloist, founding member and assistant to the director and then the director of the Inner Light Choir – a 75 Voice multi-cultural, multi-faith gospel choir in Santa Cruz California. As one of the primary music ministers at Inner Light Ministries, under that direction of Valerie Joi Fiddmont and Reverend Deborah Johnson, Kath trained and mentored soloists and musicians, and supported a multitude of guest artists such as Rickie Byars, Jami Lula, Karen Drucker, Faith Rivera, Nadine Risha, Ester Nicholson, JD Martin and Jan Garrett, Tim MacAffee-Lewis, Heather Houston, Charles Holt, Gary Lyn Floyd, and Girish to name just a few. Kath is delighted to join the team here at Unity and invites everyone to enjoy all the richness that music has to offer our community.
