Margie Oleson

- President

When visiting Unity Minneapolis for the first time, I connected immediately and discovered I had found a new spiritual home - with the Unity Choir under the leadership of Judi Vinar and Lori Dokken and learning and growing through Unity's ministerial leadership. I look forward to continuing my growth and helping the church as it plans for the future.

- Vice President

I became a member in 2007 soon after starting to attend services and classes here. Much of my professional life has involved working in some aspect of the printing business. I have been in a career transition during the past couple of years which has included going back to school to earn a degree in Human Services and starting to work in that industry as an Independent Living Skills Specialist. I am a Certified Therapeutic Coach. In service to this community I have been most active in the Hospitality Ministry. I also serve in the Unity Cares Ministry as well as the Garden Ministry.

I have been an active member of the Unity congregation for the past five years where I have been most actively engaged in Unity’s Music and Youth & Family Ministries. I approach life with an optimistic “glass half-full” attitude, and I look forward to serving and representing this congregation with a spirt of openness, hope, love and commitment.

I walked through the doors of Unity Minneapolis in 2012 and found my spiritual home. I love to be of service as team lead of our Usher Ministry as well as serving on the Love Offering and Leadership Development Teams. I have been a member of Unity Minneapolis since 2016. I believe some of the qualities I bring include courage, a willingness to learn and grow, discernment, acceptance, accountability (for myself and others), a sense of humor and the ability to play and find the joy in simple things.
