Led by Dr. Steven Roberts, Unity of Birmingham features some of the finest, world-renowned musicians and performers. Guest musicians, who are also often our Sunday speakers, add an extra layer of brilliance to an already outstanding lineup of offerings, particularly so for a smaller church such as ours at Unity of Birmingham. We may be a little biased, but the talent found in our services could easily rival (or even outdo!) the talent found at some of the local megachurches!
Dr. Steven Roberts is associate professor of jazz studies and trumpet at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Previously, he was assistant professor of trumpet and jazz at Mars Hill College after holding a similar position at Iowa State University. He is music director for Unity Church of Birmingham and is an in demand freelance musician on trumpet and piano.
