About Unity of Bandon

Unity of Bandon was a divine idea in the minds and hearts of a number people.  Their faith and loving energy brought this spiritual community into expression. 

Peg Gorman, having moved here from San Jose, loved the beach and town – but something was missing.  She missed her Unity Church in Palo Alto and longed for a Unity presence in Bandon.  So she walked the beach and shouted affirmations into the sounds of the wind and waves. 

Agnes Garner, returning to her home state of Oregon from Sacramento where she attended Unity with Phil & Dorothy Pierson, was looking for a community in which she could retire.  Bandon was attractive, but there was no Unity church and that was essential.

Reverend Carole Rose (McArthur), minister at Unity by the Bay in Coos Bay, was being prompted to start a new ministry.  An ad seeking Daily Word readers was placed in the free daily paper. Some folks gathered to discuss their desires and the first service was held on Sunday, January 7, 1990 at the Bandon Senior Center.

Reverend E.J. Niles arrived in July as Unity of Bandon’s permanent minister.  Under her leadership, Unity incorporated in the State of Oregon.  Following her resignation in 1993, guest speakers filled in for nearly a year.  In February 1994, Reverend Nancy Cook was hired as an interim minister and a small office space was rented.

On September 11, 1994 Reverend Robin Haruna (Lock) began her tenure as Unity of Bandon’s minister and remains in that position today.  Under her leadership, the church moved to our present leased location on Highway 101.

Unity of Bandon is a ministry of presence.  We are a spiritual community – newcomers are quickly adopted and enfolded into the “family”.  Here you will find joy, laughter, compassion and caring.

Honoring Diversity Within the Unity Movement

We believe that all people are created with sacred worth. Therefore, we recognize the importance of serving all people within the Unity family in spiritually and emotionally caring ways. We strive for our ministries, publications, and programs to reach out to all who seek Unity support and spiritual growth. It is imperative that our ministries and outreach be free of discrimination on the basis of race, color, gender, age, creed, religion, national origin, ethnicity, physical disability, gender identity, gender expression, or sexual orientation. Our sincere desire is to ensure that all Unity organizations are nondiscriminatory and support diversity.

In our effort to reach out to all people as did our Way Shower, Jesus Christ, we support the modification of our facilities to make them accessible to all people, regardless of physical challenges; the translation of our materials into braille and other languages; and respect for the wonderful variety of human commitments and relationships.

We encourage ministers, teachers, and others within Unity to honor the strength of diversity within their spiritual communities. It is with love and in celebration of our unity, in the midst of our wondrous diversity, that we affirm this position.

(Adopted by Unity World Headquarters at Unity Village and Unity Worldwide Ministries, January 23, 1995; revised November 5, 2014)
