Rev. Nina Clark

Associate Minister

Rev. Nina has been a devoted and ardent student of New Thought teachings for twenty five years. She is a licensed Unity Minister and will be ordained in September of 2021. She is also currently working towards her New Thought Interfaith minister credential and a Masters of Religious Studies. Her personal mission is to be a catalyst for spiritual awakening, both individually and collectively. As a rubber meets the road kind of person she finds a home in Unity because she feels it offers a practical teaching that is meant to be embodied and lived into our daily lives inspiring us to leave the world better than we found it.
