Spiritual Leadership

Senior Minister

Rev. Mindy Tucker

Rev. Mindy’s holy purpose in life is to coalesce ideas of spiritual truth and communicate them in a way that inspires people to take positive action.  That’s exactly what she does by serving as a catalyst of transformation for Unity of Wilmington, a vibrant and loving spiritual community on Sunday mornings, in classes and as she administrates church operations!

Rev. Mindy’s path to ministry has been an eclectic one, as most are.  After receiving a Bachelors of Arts in History from the University of Southern California, Rev. Mindy earned a Masters in Business Administration from the University of Hawai`i.  With 20 years of corporate service and child rearing experience, Rev. Mindy re-engaged in Truth studies and became as a Licensed Unity Teacher in 2008 and an ordained Unity minister in 2013.

Rev. Mindy is in a loving co-committed relationship with her partner, Rev. Dr. Nickie Golden.  She is also the proud mama of Mark, a principal ballet dancer with Eugene Ballet and Chris, a certified financial planner.
