Email Rev. Neusom
From an early age, Neusom knew he would be a spiritual leader, but by the age of 16 he doubted any church held his beliefs in universal divinity. He began a serious quest for answers and spiritual growth by studying Eastern religions, mythology, meditation, and various healing modalities, in addition to a Psychology degree from UNC-Chapel Hill. Directly after graduating from Presbyterian seminary with a Masters of Divinity, Neusom enrolled in Unity seminary, and is now an ordained Unity minister. He is the previous minister of Unity of Corvallis in Oregon, and has been Senior Minister of Unity of the Triangle since 2002.
Before becoming a minister, Neusom was a professional river guide on the Grand Canyon and around the world; he was the first to descend 12 rivers on four continents.

Mary’s connection to Unity began in 2012 as a congregant and in 2014 she became a member. From the first service she attended, she felt as though Neusom’s weekly messages spoke directly to her.
Mary spent 30+ years in the library field, including 20 years as a department manager at a regional library in Wake County. After retiring in 2015, she began working part-time for the church; she moved into the full-time role of operations director in 2016. She is in charge of day-to-day operations, including member/congregant relations, facility management, coordination of events and hospitality, and management of the office staff. She is passionate about making Unity of the Triangle the best that it can be. She loves the people, and she wants Unity to grow and be known to all.
In her spare time, she enjoys reading, listening to music, meditating, and spending time with her partner, Tom, and her Doxie-poo, Sully.

Chanteé received her Bachelor of Administration degree in accounting with a minor in chemistry from Texas State University in 2000.
