“The foundation of Unity is as an educational movement. Through the study of the Laws of Truth we learn to apply them so that they will dissolve our adverse beliefs and conditions and enable us to life a life of 'practical spirituality'.  In other words, we examine the teachings of Jesus and other great teachers and learn how to use them in our daily lives.”

Administrative Director
Glenda Davis

Glenda grew up in Unity.  When she was five, her family began attending Unity Temple in Detroit, Michigan. When the family moved to Albuquerque in 1959, they continued with what was then called Christ Unity. Over the years she participated in Youth of Unity and was a YFM teacher. After retiring from a family business in 2017, she was looking for a new career opportunity and responded to an ad for Unity Spiritual Center Albuquerque.  It seemed like a perfect fit.  She views the role of Office Manager as one of facilitating and collaborating with staff, congregants and others to help make Unity Spiritual Center the best possible place to be.

Facilities Manager
Carl Molter
"Michelle, Samantha, and I found USC in 2005 when we were searching for a new place of worship. The first time we entered the front doors it felt like we were "home", the people were very welcoming and non-judgemental. I've always enjoyed the small church atmosphere and we were not looking for a mega-church where no one knows your name. Here at USC we know most everyone's name and have a close connection with the people. I began helping with small repairs around the center when I first started, then fell into being the go-to guy for all maintenance, and over the last four years spearheading and keeping the remodel project moving along. Michelle and I are deeply involved and volunteer on multiple teams."
