Licensed Unity Teacher (LUT) is a spiritual course of study and licensure.

Many of our Unity classes are taught by Licensed Unity Teachers (LUTs). They have completed a rigorous program of study that provides a consistent base of knowledge and the skills necessary for ethical and excellent leadership in the church and in the classroom. The curricula consists of 25 foundational Unity classes (250 classroom hours), plus 250 additional hours of leadership coursework, training and practicum curricula, creating a deepening understanding of Unity principles, Servant Leadership and Commitment to living the principles we teach.
