In 2008, the first Christian Service Award was awarded. Community members and a committee of Unity Foundation board members choose the person for this award from nominations submitted.

The person receiving the award is someone who has made a positive impact on the community through their leadership and service. Only the committee knows who the recipient is until the day of the award ceremony. Family members of the recipient are invited as well as coworkers and friends to give short testimonies.

In 2011, the award was renamed the Ernie Unruh Christian Service Award in honor of Ernie Unruh, a charter board member of the Unity Foundation, who passed away July of 2011.

Past recipients of the award include Ed Christopherson, 2008; Brett Paradis, 2009; Tim Ferguson, 2010; Ernie Unruh, 2011; and Gary Anderson, 2012.

Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased at the door. For more information, call (320) 491-6417.
