Focus Ministry - the Spiritual Frontier
There is a shift in consciousness, awareness, and spiritual practice happening right now in the Western world. The trend is away from large congregations (except for the mega-churches, of course) and toward smaller, more personal communities. In addition, today’s technology has opened up a new venue for spiritual practice and spiritual community. This shift is also showing up in the approaches of newly minted, and sometimes newly shifted, ministers. Centers for Spiritual Living refers to these non-traditional ministers as Focus Ministers. Focus ministers are, by definition, unique. Each one approaches ministry from a perspective that has not been seen in the brick-and-mortar centers. Some examples are:
•Music ministry •Prison ministry •Online education •Yoga and Spirituality •Retreat and teaching center
These are just a few of the options, and the choices really are unlimited. What they have in common is that each one takes the spiritual practice wherever it is needed, either physically, online, or both.
The table below shows all of the currently active New Thought Focus Ministries that have provided information to the Directory, sorted by state/country, with contact information and a direct email link for each.

Saying Goodbye A Return to Wholeness
Rev. Toni Cormier
5706 Cahalan Ave., #23397
The primary goal of this ministry is to create a sacred space for individuals to examine their personal beliefs regarding death/dying and grief/loss. These all too often taboo topics are an inevitability for all of us, so why not gain knowledge and resources which will allow one to make informed decisions and/or transformation. This ministry also provides individual support that allows one to “say goodbye” to a loved one, relationship, or career. These events can have a direct correlation to the grief process. The grief process is like taking a trip but one does not know where they are going, who will be there to support them, how long it will take, or what they will need; however, along the journey one can discover the resiliency of the human spirit. Our mission is to empower, nurture and guide people through pivotal life transitions.
Spiritual Care Everywhere
Rev. John Odden
Newport Beach, CA
Spiritual Care Everywhere (S-C-E) exists to make spiritual care broadly accessible for all people whenever they might want access. The first steps include super-simple access to spiritual care for anyone in a health care setting. Our vision is to connect spiritual care for all religions, faiths, and cultural backgrounds. The goal is a "best match" for spiritual care from all sources - volunteers, prayer ministries, practitioners, ministers, and chaplains. Everyone deserves to benefit from spiritual care according to their need.
The social and technical developments behind building S-C-E led us to unexpected insights on making human connections easier. We already apply what we've learned in HealthEPupil, a program that brings immediate and effective remediation to students who face unexpected developmental or behavioral challenges in their school setting. Communities have unseen strength and capacity at a time of expanding human needs. S-C-E is a simple step in activating better support for people – support that makes real differences.
The vision of this focus ministry is to bring mindfulness to the world. The mission of this ministry is to teach and inspire using a combination of yoga and Science of Mind philosophies and practices. The deeply devotional yoga practice compliments the Science of Mind teachings by uniting heart and mind.

Rev. Dr. Moss Rick
Key Biscayne, FL
As Ernest Holmes wrote, we need to be "Open at the top." I believe that we also need to be open at the heart. God is not known through our limited mind which can not embrace the infinite. But our hearts can Love without boundaries.
The focus of my ministry is to help individuals and groups to find and release the mental and emotional blocks that keep us in fear, judgment and separation. By releasing these blocks, we can open to self-love which is the first step in opening more fully to love others. To do this, I use visualization and emotional release work.
I am guided in this by a strong sense of intuition.

Toll Free 844-GR8-TRAV (844-478-8728)
Join me on a tour if you're looking to get away and have a priceless experience. I'll give any colleague a nice discount on a tour. You'll travel with New Thought folks because that is our market niche.
Reach out to me if you'd love to travel with your community members and see the financial giving go up in your community. We'll work out an agreement that makes you smile SO BIG, too! I want to shower my colleagues with love in so many ways through this new ministry.
This will especially work if you have 75-100 active people in your community. I've recently started working with a Unity minister with about 100 active people in their community and they filled up all the spots in an upcoming tour in 2023 in 2 weeks. There are several people on the waiting list, too. I even have ideas where two smaller communities can come together so this can still easily work.
Our name reflects our belief that through our collective practice of the Science of Mind philosophy we can affect + effect powerful and lasting cultural change. We believe that a world that works for everyone is truly possible. We believe that our collective dedication to spiritual truths and tools will lead to our mutual liberation. We can unleash our spiritual magnificence and live in harmony, abundance, and belonging. We endeavor to cast a new vision for being whole and one with each other and our work is activated through our spiritual communities,
temples, mosques, churches, and beyond. We hope you will join us.
Our intention is to support spiritual and religious communities to create and sustain cultures of inclusiveness and belonging. We start with listening and data gathering; we provide consulting, community building, coaching, workshops, facilitation and facilitation training, small group dialogue facilitation and training, Sunday morning speaker, and somatic practices for stress and trauma.
One Love Animal Connection
Rev. Karen Cleveland
As a Centers for Spiritual Living ministry, One Love Animal Connection exists to serve the world two unique ways – to inspire and guide people to more meaningful lives by understanding and applying Universal Truths in our lives as revealed to us by the animal kingdom and natural world, and to serve as a resource in assisting churches, communities and individuals in creating their own animal or pet ministries, ceremonies or services.
It is the blend of Rev. Karen's respect for all life, human and non-human, and devotion to Spirit. In addition to being a licensed Centers for Spiritual Living Minister Karen is a professional animal communicator and realized that her journey and evolution as a successful animal communicator has been directly reflected in the deepening of my connection with Spirit, leading to a more successful, meaningful life. With this revelation she is committed to helping others achieve the same success through connection with the animals.
