Our Spiritual Director, Prayer Ministry, and Board of Trustees

Ernest Holmes advises those praying with, and for, others, "...we work with individuals, not as a physical body (or body of affairs), not as diseased condition, or as disease belonging to them; we do not think of the disease as being connected to them, nor a part of them.

We realize that individuals are born of Spirit and not matter. Spirit is Changeless, Perfect and Complete. We REALIZE this until we see those we work with as a living embodiment of Perfection..." Just as the projection on a movie screen is not you, even though you are experiencing it; so to, you are not those things you desire to transcend in your life. They are appearances, not definition.

Our Licensed Practitioner Team and Prayer Partners, your Healing Ministry, are here to remember and declare who you REALLY ARE-Infinite, Eternal, a Divine Child of the Universe, the incarnation of Creation-in-action. Have you forgotten? Let us help you remember; and thus, heal.

Our Spiritual Director & Minister: 

Rev. Christine Jeffers

The Center for Spiritual Living Paradise Board of Trustees is delighted to announce that Rev. Christine Jeffers has been hired as
our new minister and Spiritual Director in May of 2019.

After so much loss from the Camp Fire last November, we accepted Rev. Andy Torkelson’s resignation this January as he desired to move into full-time work as Clinical Director of Skyway House, a residential drug and alcohol treatment facility in Chico. He served us with passion and dedication for thirteen years and we will always be grateful to him.

Rev. Christine’s roots in the Science of Mind philosophy lead all the way back to our Center where she first began her spiritual journey on Bille Road in 1984.

Today and Together we are ready to get back to business and the joyful work of charting our course for the future.

Thank you, CSL Chico, for all the ways you are blessings us on our journey. Rev. Christine will continue to serve the Chico Center as a staff minister and practitioner. To contact Rev. Christine, please call (530) 701-5929 or e-mail her at revjeffers@gmail.com
