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 over 40 different versions of focus ministry currently affiliated with Centers for Spiritual Living. What they have in common is portability, or accessibility. Each one takes the spiritual practice wherever it is needed, either physically or online.


The table below shows all of the currently active CSL Focus Ministries, sorted by state/country, with contact information and a direct email link for each.
