Stepping outside the walls of Unity North to serve not only the surrounding community but our beloved planet is, not only part of our Mission, it is part of who we are. We believe that we are all one community and everything we do is in service to all. Our Outreach Teams embody that Vision and we invite you to join us in our mission of service.
If you would like to help out in any of these areas of service please contact the Unity North Atlanta office so we can get you plugged in.

Unity North Atlanta seeks to lead both the spirit and body towards wholeness and, therefore, attempts to help those in Job Transition with its Career Ministry.
The Career Ministry meets on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Monday of each month at 10:30 am in the Peace Chapel and features a diverse group of speakers in an effort to lessen the amount of time unemployed. Featured speakers include employment coaches, experts in social media, motivators, and people who can aid those who choose to start their own business.
In keeping with the Unity principle of “‘honoring all paths to God,” there is no proselytizing. The ministry’s focus is on helping people of any faith or of no faith to reclaim their position in the workplace. Everyone is welcome.
