Meet Our Minister

Rev. Richard Bunch

Rev. Richard Bunch

Rev. Richard Bunch, Senior Minister —

The first Sunday I attended a Unity center and heard the words “God is unconditional love and accepts you as you are,” I felt at home. I had been looking for a church home for ten years with my wife, Vicki. Since that first Sunday at Unity of El Paso in 1997 until the present, I have been committed to my inner spiritual journey and developing leaders around me.

I have found that my past career as president and founder of a multi-corporate financial company, my experience as an active member of other Christian denominations and life experiences have prepared me as a Unity minister.

In my undergraduate work, I focused on Bible and history. In my graduate work, I focused on finances. My post-graduate work was completed at Unity Institute and Seminary.

I served at Unity of El Paso as Spiritual Leader from 1999 to 2004 and as Minister at Unity of Richmond from 2006 to the present time with a high-tech/high-touch perspective of growing and building spiritual community through live-streaming out into the greater world.

On the regional and international levels, I have served on many boards and teams to support the Unity message of positive, practical and progressive Christianity, including serving on the international Board at Unity Worldwide Ministries. I continue to grow and evolve as an Instructor at Unity Worldwide Spiritual Institute, reaching many students through our global online teaching platform. My life continues to be transformed as I “Grow in Spirit” and experience “Transformed Lives… Transforming the World.”
