Shereen returned to Unity of Denver in 2019 after being out of the area for 25 years. She joined the staff in 2022 and is thrilled to be part of the vision Trish, as Spiritual Leader, is leading.
The core of Unity teachings have been part of Shereen’s life since birth. The energy Unity of Denver brings to the community fills her soul. She believes in the Oneness and connectedness of all creation and completely embraces the principal that together we are co-creators of our world.
Her role includes administration of the business of Unity of Denver, ministry support and community outreach.
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.
