The Power of Focused Ministry Workshops


Join Rev. Shad Groverland, President and CEO of Unity Worldwide Ministries, in a timely 1-day workshop designed for ministry leaders, future leaders, and those who train these leaders. The world of ministry is rapidly changing and there is a chance we could be left behind, unless we can acquire tools that will keep us current, relevant, focused, impactful and enjoying the work we do. Through presentation, group discussion, brainstorming and connecting with Spirit, we will learn these tools that create the foundation for a thriving modern ministry.

Rev. Shad Groverland was born and raised in Unity, learning Unity principles from his parents Rev. Jack and Norma Groverland. His passion for music production was ignited while serving in his parents’ church, which led him to a 25-year career in sound production & management in Los Angeles and Las Vegas. He was then called into ministry and attended the Unity Urban Ministerial School, receiving his ordination in 2016. He served at Unity of Las Vegas for five years before returning home to Unity of Boulder in Colorado, where he co-ministered with his sister, Syntysche, and father, Jack. He was hired at Unity Worldwide Ministries as Executive Director in October 2020. January, 2023 saw Rev. Shad be elevated to the title of President/CEO at UWM.
Rev. Shad’s Unity experience is vast and long-term. He has served as youth director, board trustee, youth camp counselor, youth and family team leader, and Next Generation Unity minister advisor. In 2018, he was appointed to the UWM Board of Trustees, and served as Secretary of the Board in 2019 and 2020. During his tenure on the board, Shad served on multiple teams focused on shaping the future of the Unity Movement and has continued this legacy of revitalization into his current position as President/CEO. His sole purpose in this role is to support and equip Unity ministries and leaders to thrive and grow.

Shad & Erinna while visiting ministries they noticed a need for getting clear on a direction in ministry throughout Unity. Together they created a presentation to share as a workshop to ministries. Since 2022 Rev. Shad and Erinna will have led 34 workshops nationwide. Over 1000 Unity leaders representing 275+ Unity ministries have attended the workshop. The workshop has shown to be very meaningful & successful for ministries with 100% feedback from ministries that attended the workshop.
