2022 Unity of Bon Air Board Election Slate
I am Chuck Clark. My first exposure to Unity was in the early 80’s. I got more deeply involved in the 90’s at Unity of Richmond, and came to Bon Air in 2000. I served in the Youth & Family Ministry (10 years with the Y.O.U. and about the same with grades K through 3). I’ve been involved with men of Unity since its inception (many projects, fun events, spiritual growth). I have been a Prayer Chaplain, served on the Board of Directors, been a part of the Hospitality team, sung in the Choir, performed in our drama production at Easter, acted in Readers Theatre, etc. I am running for the Board now to help ensure that all the same opportunities that were here for me continue to be available for the next person who walks through our doors. I think we need fresh, new, young people with fresh, new ideas to create the atmosphere that will attract more new, young folks, but we also need a balance with experienced members.
Rev. Carzita Carrington-Correll
I am very committed and dedicated to the goals, mission, and focus of Unity of Bon Air. I will use my skills and gifts of leadership, administration, wisdom, integrity, and joy to continue to support UBA.
As a member for 18 years I’ve had several roles: Prayer Chaplain Coordinator, Prayer Chaplain; Board of Directors, Board President, Finance Committee Chair, Service Leader, Sunday Messages, Facilitator of Courageous Conversation, and Music Team.
An Ordained Baptist Minister. I graduated Virginia Union Seminary Evans-Smith School of Divinity in Religious Studies.
I strive to be a light to all.
Amy is currently serving as Secretary of UBA Board; student of Unity Principles for 20 years; 11 UBA. My first run for the Board, I said it was all about the love. God’s love expressing through us and connecting us as one. It is also about relying on my faith in God. It has made me resilient, zestful to stay the course, and has given me the ability to move through the pandemic, change and critical issues facing our spiritual home. My heart knows that the Board has fiduciary responsibilities in growth, finances, policies, and procedures. As a Board Member, I have a greater responsibility to love and cherish you, our members; to keep you informed and to encourage your input, service and participation for the growth and sustainability of our church. We are all walking each other home. I am grateful for your support in helping me in becoming a Board member for another 3-year term.
Brent A. Jackson, Esq.
WHO AM I AND WHY DO I SEEK TO SERVE
In the last seven (7) years I have served on the Board six (6) of those years. Two (2) years as Treasurer; two (2) years as Vice President; and two (2) years as President. My commitment to Unity of Bon Air is a direct correlation of what it has done for me. It has placed the Divine in my life when I was exploring life’s many challenges. It has provided direction for my personal journey as I raised my children. It has provided prosperity to me in my professional and personal life.
In the last seven (7) years, we as a congregation have experienced changes in leadership; the stressors of the pandemic; economic woes; and the uncertainties of societal responses to all of the changes our world has encountered. Yet, we at U.B.A. have survived and prospered. I have been blessed with the opportunity to serve this congregation with wonderful and creative people on the Board who shared the dedication and vision that U.B.A. has the strength of faith to survive the hard times and blossom with growth during the good times
So why do I seek to continue my service.......for there are more dreams to achieve and more joy to realize as we build a church that we can truly call our home.
My name is Janet Loving-Pitts. My first year on the board has given me the opportunity to deepen my commitment to promoting our mission to live and express unconditional love and acceptance. People who enter UBA feel that love and acceptance. Continuing as a board member will enable me to help grow and enhance all that is UBA. The skills I utilized in my work in the public sector strengthen my contribution to the board and include: collaboration, teamwork, communication, advocacy, integrity, creativity and empathy. In addition to being a board alternate, my areas of service at UBA are Chair of the Bon Air Cares team, Love in Action board, fellowship coffee, youth and family ministry and hospitality.
Rev. Lisa Marks
I am Reverend Lisa Marks, a Religious Science Minister, counselor, teacher, and Prayer Chaplain here at Unity. I have just completed my first year on the board as an alternate. During this past year, I was chair of the committee that hired our wonderful office manager, Kim, and have been involved with the safety committee, working on protocols to keep our congregation safe.
I have learned much being on the board of our church, and have been honored to be among this group of leaders who care deeply about moving the church forward. With the ending of the pandemic, I feel a lot of excitement for Unity Bon Air as it steps into its next phase of ministry to our community, and I choose to be a part of that!
