Our Minister

Reverend JoannaReverend Joanna has been the Minister of Unity in Valley Stream since 2004 and has pursued and practiced the path of truth throughout her adult life. The Principles of Unity resonated with her as a child after reading various Unity publications.  Upon learning that Unity also had churches, she became a member of the Unity church family.  She participated as a congregant, then as a Licensed Unity Teacher, and as an Ordained Interfaith Minister. Reverend Joanna has dedicated her life to serving the Unity ministry in Valley Stream.

Rev. Joanna Keneally has the wonderful ability to take the teachings of Jesus and present them in such a way that encourages the listener to be more than just a “hearer” of the Word. After hearing Rev. Joanna explain the dynamic role and opportunity we have to co-create our lives with God, you will want to be a “doer” of the Word and live a Principle-based life.

A native of New Jersey, Rev. Joanna and her late husband, Bill, settled on Long Island over 45 years ago after her husband’s tour of duty in the US Air Force.  Rev. Joanna retired from a thirty-two year teaching and counseling career.  Reverend Joanna's family includes a daughter Kathy and her husband Tom, a daughter Theresa, and two grandchildren, Billy and Katie.  Rev. Joanna holds a BS in Education and an MS in Counseling.
