Youth Director at Unity Spiritual Center
Meet Scott Gessner
The primary objective of our Youth Director is to plan and guide the spiritual education of children and teens, and to support those serving on the Youth and Family Ministry Team in successfuly mentoring the young.
Another objective is to create a safe environment in which the young can grow through spiritual self-discovery.
Our Youth Director is available to support children, their parents, and our team members, as well as to attend to the administrative details connected with managing our Sunday morning youth experience.
Our Youth Director identifies and provides Unity curriculum; provides materials and resources for lessons; coordinates children's lessons with the adult Sunday service; creates classroom environments with appropriate enrichment resources; and works with other teams to involve our youth in all areas of our spiritual community.
Scott Gessner, our Youth Director, brings to USC a wealth of experience in working with children and adults in the areas of education and counseling. Now retired from the public education system, Scott served for 35 years in the Elyria School District, spending 20 years as a teacher and 15 years as a counselor. Scott has been involved with Unity for seven years.
