Our Minister

Rev. Luz Lecour was born in Puerto Rico. She and her parents moved to New York City in 1952. She married her soul mate, Jose Lecour, in 1970. They have two wonderful daughters and three grandchildren. They were also blessed with a son. He transitioned at the age of 10. Luz says, “The love we shared with our son during his brief life lives in my heart. His transition sparked a desire to go on a quest for spiritual truth.”

Rev. Luz has a master’s degree in education from the University of Staten Island. She taught at a NYC Math and Science Magnet School for thirteen years. In 2000, Rev. Luz and her husband both retired and moved to Florida. Her husband was a NYC Police Lieutenant. Luz missed teaching, so after settling into their new home and new community, she resumed her teaching career. She taught at a school in the Citrus County School System for nine years as a classroom teacher and two years as a writing coach. In 2011, she retired (again).

Before retiring, Rev. Luz discovered Unity. It did not take long for her to dive into Unity’s teachings. She says, “Unity’s teachings transformed my life.” In 2014, she felt the call to become a Unity Minister. She graduated from the Unity Urban Ministerial School in 2017 and was ordained by Unity Worldwide Ministries in 2018. She has served as the Senior Minister at Unity of Citrus County and is now our Senior Minister at Unity of Roanoke Valley. “I continue to listen to Spirit and allow myself to be where I am called to be. I am honored to serve the community of Unity of Roanoke Valley. It is a loving, accepting, and healing place where all are welcomed and embraced as a child of God.”

Rev. Luz is passionate about sharing the life-changing universal teachings of Unity with anyone who is willing to listen. Her mission is to be a healing presence of Divine Love in the world and to support others on their journey of deep healing. Her love, passion, humor, wisdom, and depth are evident in all she does.

Outside of ministry, Rev. Luz loves to travel, read, write, dance, and spend time with family. She lives with her husband, Jose, and their cat, Mia.
