Meet Our Staff

Rev. Heidi Alfrey

Senior Minister
E-mail Rev. Heidi Alfrey

We are delighted to welcome Rev. Heidi Alfrey to Unity in Chicago as our new Senior Minister!

Heidi is an ordained Unity minister and holds a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. She combines her life experience and innate ability to “hear what is not being said” as she guides many in peeling off the layers of the false self.

Heidi’s weekly Unity online radio program (, Let’s Get Naked: Revealing Our Authentic Selves, features revealing interviews with people who have chosen to live in bold authenticity. These inspiring conversations expose the power of living nakedly, the spiritual responsibility to be yourself, no matter what.

Peter Polzak

Music Director

I have been a full-time professional musician here in Chicago for over 30 years. In the relatively short time I’ve been here, since March 2007, I have met and worked with an extraordinary staff and I feel like I’ve found a new home. I just love it here!

I look forward to expressing my passion for music and humanity in new forms, and to continually bringing in top-level talent to entertain and inspire all who attend. What a beautiful place to be!
