Meet Our Minister

Rev. Terrence Padgett, Minister

Rev. Terrence Padgett was born and raised in Chicago, IL, about 4 miles from Mecca (Wrigley Field).  Being a Chicago Cubs fan tells you three things about him immediately.  He is hopeful, optimistic, and long-suffering.

Experiencing a “calling” to Ministry in his 15 month of sobriety in 1992 he became an ordained Unity Minister in June of 2000 and has served people and Ministries in various capacities over the past fifteen years.

Most recently he served the past 5 years as the S.E. Regional Consultant for S.E. Unity Ministries.

The vision of his Ministry is in creating a thriving, congruent, and integral community in which personal skills and spiritual insight can be used in every aspect of individual and congregational life.  His personal mission is, “Blessing the world through expressing my gifts and the passion of my heart.”

His purpose as a Spiritual leader lies in empowering people by discovering their spiritual gifts and how to utilize them in a transformative way.  His approach to leadership is expressed in the Tao Te Ching: “Can I cleanse my inner vision until I see nothing but the light?  Can I love people and lead them without imposing my will?  Can I deal with the most vital matters by letting events take their course?  Leading and not trying to control: This is the supreme virtue.”
