Unity of Delray Beach Hires Greg Barrette as Senior Minister/CEO
Unity of Delray Beach Church, (UDB) a New Thought spiritual community at 101 NW 22nd St. at Swinton Avenue in Delray Beach, Florida, has named the Reverend Gregory Barrette as its new Senior Minister.
Greg will be the speaker at both the 9:25 and 11 a.m. services on Sunday, August 26, and he hopes to also meet with a lot of congregants at that time. He will be back permanently in early October.
Brown said, "We couldn't be more pleased; Greg has always been a solid friend to us and he's above and beyond the benchmark of what a minister should be. It's like if we were a high school basketball game, and LeBron James came up and asked to play on our team."
Currently Senior Minister at Unity Northwest in Des Plaines Illinois, Greg brings 38 years of highly successful leadership as minister and administrator for several Unity churches around the country, including UDB from 1989 to 1996.
Greg noted, "I remember my days at UDB with great fondness. Ours was a dynamic, team-oriented ministry. Unity of Delray Beach has always been rooted in Unity's core spiritual principles–it's all about spiritual growth. I visited late last year, and there was still so much enthusiasm and commitment! Everyone was welcoming and open-hearted. The board and staff have always expressed a high level of integrity, skill, and consciousness. We were drawn together again for a definite purpose- a healthy congregation is focused on spiritual growth above all."
Brown pointed out that "Every church Greg has led has experienced remarkable success. During the time Greg was our minister in the late 80s-90s, church attendance and offerings more than doubled. The Unity of Delray Beach School (pre-school through eighth grade) student body and revenue skyrocketed under Greg's watch. While he was here we built a world-class sports field and the Middle School building. All without pledges or loans."
