After 1-2 years without a minister, it was apparent that Unity of Sedona needed a good, trustworthy leader. So it was decided to again hire a longer-term leader. The process of finding a new leader began and continued far longer than anyone expected—dragging on for well over a year and exhausting everyone involved. The Board and Minister Selection Committee interviewed a record number of applicants (30+) but could not come to an agreement on any one person, which left the process in a stalemate and added even more agitation between the various committees and Board Members. In the meantime, Unity Worldwide Headquarters made the decision to ask all of its churches to no longer use the word, “Church” in their name. So, late into the year of 2011, Unity Church of Sedona officially changed its name to “Unity of Sedona.”
