You’ll often hear Kevan say he has the world’s shortest job description: “help people see Jesus.” Kevan’s passion is to lead disciples in seeing what Jesus is doing in the world, get involved in Jesus' work, and tell those stories to invite others to participate with us. When he isn’t sharing good news of Jesus, then he’s likely evangelizing for Chipotle or Rusted Root . . . not that these are mutually exclusive.
Director of Operations & Ministry
Abundance is the main word in Peggy’s vocabulary and she is called to help disciples of Jesus see the abundance God provides in life. As the Director of Operations and Ministry, Peggy has oversight of property and ministry and thus her vision of this abundance translates to everything from ant hills and broken floor tiles to financial abundance with the oversight of the stewardship committee and Financial Peace University ministry.
Director of Outreach & Faith Mentoring
Scott comes from a background of television news, and knows a good story. Unity has one, and Scott has been called by Jesus to be a part of it. At the church, he helps others see Jesus' presence in the world and discern what he might be calling them to do in the lives of those around them. Scott finds joy and peace through bringing people together around food, creativity, and justice to grow in community through the Spirit. If there's football on a television, Scott will find a way to watch it...especially if it involves the Bears, UCLA, or Ohio State.
Jaime Larson McLoone
Jaime is grateful to be starting her seminary internship at Unity! Jaime finished up three years of classes at Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota in the spring of 2020. She was able to take most of her classes from home while working as director of communications for Mount Carmel Lutheran Church in Milwaukee, where she was on staff since 2013. She was also a member there since 2011, when she moved with her husband Mike from North Carolina.
It was in North Carolina where she probably first began to sense a call to ordained ministry – though she wouldn’t have described it that way at the time. She joined a large Lutheran congregation in Cary, a suburb of Raleigh, where she was involved as a volunteer in areas such as communications, Sunday school, and high school youth ministry. After moving to Wisconsin and working at Mount Carmel, she began exploring the possibility of going to seminary.
Jaime started at Luther as a distributed learner in the fall of 2017. The internship is the last requirement for her master of divinity degree, with a concentration in Congregational Mission and Leadership. While she enjoyed every class, her favorites were those in which students were encouraged to engage in ministry experiments, such as praying for passers-by on a sidewalk in the Twin Cities, bringing together a group of churchgoers and people who don’t go to church for four weeks of Bible study, and developing an experiment for a church in rural Minnesota with a popular but challenging after-school ministry.
While ministry during a pandemic has been challenging for everyone, it has also given Jaime opportunities as a student to keep learning though experiments. She looks forward to continuing to learn during this year at Unity – and to put her classroom learning into practice.
