How Unity Raised $35,000 for Nigeria in 20 Minutes

 

The 2018 People's Convention Business Meeting opened with high drama  this year. Although the video clip doesn't show it, Richard Bunch had  just said that “he was told to stay on script and that he would get to  it in a minute.” Richard then makes an appeal to members for $7,500 for  Unity in Nigeria. The video shows the Parliamentarian sitting to his  right, hand on forehead, possibly thinking “What are they doing now?” 

Twenty minutes later, Unity had raised $35,000. SEE ENTIRE MEETING HERE.

Unity first came to Africa in the 1920s

Imagine the world with an expanded Unity presence and consciousness…Unity first came to Africa in the 1920s, via the radio with Charles Fillmore broadcasting late at night. We continue reaching out to truth seekers in Nigeria via Building Bridges. In 1987, the National School was established. In 1997, Silent Unity of Nigeria was established. We are so grateful to be a part of the development of the Unity movement in Nigeria.
Love and blessings,
Rev Lisa Davis

Children Ministry Support Program

Children Ministry Support Program

Children in attendance at conventions

 Building Bridges made it possible for children in Unity to have their annual retreat program by providing the needed fund for the retreats. Children gather at the Unity headquarters every year with great expectations of gifts, and other interesting activities at their  retreat. The Lisa Davis trophy encourages the children to study and  understand Unity teaching at early stage of their lives. 

About The Building Bridges Program

Creating a Building Bridges Team

This program can be as creative as your ministry desires. We recommend a  Building Bridges team be formed. While it is often easier for a person  to do something alone, the creation of a Building Bridges team in a  ministry provides team-building, community support and more hands to do  an important work. 

Long Term Commitment

 It is highly recommended that you make a two-year commitment to your Sister Ministry. 

Prayer Support

A basic aspect of the Sister Ministry Program is mutual prayer support. Your Sister Ministry  is on your prayer list and you on theirs as you hold the vision of  wholeness an abundance for each other in the practice of Unity  principles. Two ministries located in different parts of the globe,  joining in prayer can be a very powerful experience. 

Unity Books

In the past, ministries in the United States have supplied their Sister  Ministries with 10, 20, 30 or more copies of one of the basic Unity  books which allows the whole ministry to have a copy and study it  together. Your members may come up with very creative ways to fund this,  such as having individuals in your ministry “sponsor” a book by  purchasing it, or paying for the shipping. 

Shared Resources

Some of the resources Sister Ministries may share teachers, ambassadors,  mentors as well as prayer partners and pen-pals. Please remember that  this is a reciprocal relationship that is intended to bless both  ministries, and be a grateful receiver of the resources your Sister  Ministry may share with you. 

Monetary Support  

There are times when ministries in North America may desire to send a  monetary gift to ministries outside the region.  This can be a very  valuable financial support to Sister Ministries, and yet it is  certainly not required.  It is very strongly suggested that such level  of support be given only after a solid relationship is built and with  great caution. 

A Simpler Way to Help... Support An African Ministerial Student

Unity Church Nigeria has a great need for ministers. The Unity School Nigeria ministerial class beginning in 2010 has 27 applicants that have been accepted. Senior Doctor Reverend Amos Kalu has left his church in  order to be a full time professor in their ministerial school. None of  them have books or supplies or any way of paying tuition.
A monthly donation of $100 would pay for tuition, books and supplies for one ministerial student for one month.
Unity  of Portland Building Bridges Team has set up a separate account to support this process. Simply send your monthly donation to:

     Building Bridges - African Ministries
     Unity of Portland
     4525 SE Stark St.
     Portland, OR 97215

Unity of Portland will take on the responsibility of purchasing books and mailing tuition to Unity School Nigeria. 

Support the Unity Church Nigeria

Another way is to support the Unity Church Nigeria, the headquarters of  all the Nigerian Churches in rebuilding their buildings that were destroyed in the Nigerian Civil War, gathering books for a Unity  library. Any donations made to the Unity Church Nigeria would go to the Building Fund for their World Headquarters. 

Having a central meeting place is very important to the Unity Movement in Africa. The rebuilding of these buildings allows the Movement to have  stature in Nigeria.
