We welcomed Rev. Dan Holloway to Unity of Vero Beach as our permanent minister in 2012!
With his wife Rev. Kathy McManus, Rev. Dan has spent over 25 years in Florida and knows the culture and weather well.

Howard Caesar for five years as Senior Associate Minister of Unity Church of Christianity in Houston, one of the largest churches in the Unity movement. He has served churches in Texas, Florida, Nebraska and Virginia.
Rev. Dan has gained experience in the greater Unity Movement through his service to our Association of Unity Churches, International (now Unity Worldwide Ministries). He served on various Ministry Teams, then as a Board member, and then as Chair of the Board for the Association of Unity Churches, International.
He has valued and put into use the education received through the Unity Minister’s Executive Institute, Peaceworker training, Appreciative Inquiry and Transitional Ministry training. He has ministered in a corporate-sized church as well as program-sized and pastoral churches.
Rev. Kathy McManus, was ordained as a Unity minister in 2009. Rev.

His vision is one of inclusiveness, wholeness, and creativity. His mission is to demonstrate peace, joy, acceptance and the power of choice.
