Violet Headley

Violet Headley Unity Minister

Violet Headley was an African-American Unity minister who was ordained by exception in 1986. This page is a placeholder for a future profile.

The July/Aug 1982 Contact magazine says she received recognition as a Licensed Unity Teacher on June 15, 1982. The August 1985 Contact Magazine says she was given licensed minister status through the exceptions process.

Here is a memorial from the Unity Canada website:

In Memory of Rev. Violet Headley

Rev. Violet Headley made her transition the week of December 8th. Her passing was announced to her congregation on Sunday, December 15th. Violet became a licensed Unity teacher and founded a Unity study group in 1981 which she grew into the incorporated church Unity of Agape in 1985. Rev. Violet became part of the Unity ministerial field licensing programme and became a Unity minister in 1986. Rev. Violet, a strong Unity minister, deeply devoted to Truth and Fillmore teaching, will be sorely missed by her congregation and the Unity movement. We prayer that peace and comfort fill the hearts of those who miss presence her the most.

Rev. Violet founded this study group in 1981 as a licensed teacher and spiritual leader and brought the group to full incorporation in 1985. In 1986, she was ordained by the International Association of Unity Churches and continued in her role as senior minister until her passing.
