Meet Our Board & Staff

Andrea Giehl
Board of Trustees President

Over the past 20 years of membership at Unity of Fredericksburg, I have served on the Board of Trustees a number of times.  I’ve also either headed up or been on a variety of ministry teams including coordinator of Spirit Groups.

I feel very excited about this new phase of our church’s unfoldment.  My vision is that of a “boutique” church.  By that I mean that we may not have all the bells and whistles of a larger church but, instead, a palpable ambience that is unique and fulfilling.  I see the focus being on nurturing deeper relationships among us whether it be supporting each other’s spiritual development, having fun together or helping each other out when the vagaries of life (both happy and sad) occur. We have an amazing opportunity before us to co-create in a very special way.  Let’s do it!


Johnetta Hooper
Board of Trustees Vice President

Johnetta started attending and became a charter member of Unity of Fredericksburg in 2000. She is a lifelong student of faith teachings and was especially attracted to Unity’s focus on living according to Christ’s teachings. Her greatest joy has been learning Unity principles & practices while serving as youth ed teacher and coordinator. She is grateful and honored to serve with the Board in the cause of unity. IMAGINE:  Unity 2022


Nina Jones
Board of Trustees Treasurer

I am a charter member of Unity Fredericksburg, having joined in 2000 with my daughter Carly. I have served on the board multiple times, including as board president twice, under three different ministers. I also worked as the church’s Business Manager for 10 years.  This unity community is very important to me. My goal is that we continue to support each other and our extended community, so that we may share our message of peace, acceptance, and love.




Linda Thornton
Board of Trustees Secretary

I am married and have one grown son. I came to Fredericksburg as a college student and have been here ever since.  I retired 2 years ago from a career in Information Systems as a computer programmer/developer and business analyst.  I enjoy gardening, travelling, and spending time with friends. I had been searching for a spiritual home and I found it at Unity on Halloween in 2015.  It has been life changing. As a member, I chaired the facilities committee when we were at the RT 1 location.  And have participated in many programs and events. As a member of the Board of Trustees I will use my project management and organizational skills.  My vision for Unity is for our community to continue to grow and prosper.
