In general, most New Thought ministers (and many Religious Science Practitioners) have created workshops or weeks-long courses as part of their training. Others have a passion for it. New Thought Grand Valley is blessed with such passionate teachers and quality curriculum to take your curiosity to a deeper level of understanding the Science of Mind philosophy and other New Thought topics.

We are proud to be an “affiliated organization” and teaching center as a result of the groundwork laid by ministers Dr. Carla and Dr. Mike Ryan and their long history of association with Emerson Theological Institute. Each spiritually-based course has been created and tested by experienced minister/instructors, as well as reviewed, approved and accredited through Emerson. This process allows the student, who wishes to work toward degree programs and/or practitioner and ministerial credentials, to do so with confidence in the materials and under the tutelage of a trained and experienced minister/instructor. The only missing ingredient is YOU. Speak with one of our NTGV ministers to learn more about the education program and to discover where it might take you.

A course schedule is under development. It will include a variety of class and workshop options to launch in 2020. While some course offerings have pre-requisites, many do not. There is always something for everyone. Stay tuned! In the meantime, check out the COURSE DESCRIPTIONS page for a range of topics we currently cover. More will likely be developed and offered in the future. Be part of the journey!

We are also considering an after-the-service video series.. It would be offered on a “love offering” basis, and will be a study/discussion group format on various religious and spirituality topics. Schedule and location to be announced ASAP.
