Rev. Annette Olsen


Annette first came to Unity of Fayetteville in 1990, and has been directing music and choir here for the last 23 years. She is a gifted musician, songwriter and speaker.  Music is a major part of her ministry.  Her passion is to interplay heart-felt music with divinely inspired messages that evoke the experience of Oneness. Annette presents a variety of transformational Sunday morning experiences in conjunction with guest musicians.

She also works with the Unity Community to create learning and service opportunities for each person to be that Loving, joy-filled presence in this world.  Her focus is to co-create a community with us, where we can all move into our most vibrant, living Expressions of Spirit.

Annette has been accepted in to the Field Licensing Ministerial Program at Unity Worldwide Ministries and we congratulate her on following her long-held dream to become a Minister.
