Our Ministerial Team

The HOME Spiritual Center Ministerial Team has been providing congregational spiritual support and inspiration since 1992. By following our Guiding Principles our Team can help individuals gain spiritual understanding and a philosophy that reflects Christ’s consciousness. The Ministerial Teams goal is to help seekers tap in to their own inner wisdom and empowerment and to support their relationship with the Divine.


Rev’s Madge, Connie, and Jennifer  provide continual leadership, spiritual support and inspiration to our congregants as well as our community. They do this by listening deeply, identifying the needs of their congregants and by providing tools and strategies necessary to master your own world every day.  By providing those tools, individuals are better able to connect to their own deep wisdom and empowerment and ultimately confidence is built.

Our Guiding Principles

  • To recognize our Divine Connection.

  • To encourage each other to live empowered, fulfilling and joyful lives.

  • To appreciate our commonalities and differences.

  • To be mindful and considerate in our communications and interactions.

  • To take ownership of my actions.

  • To have an attitude of gratefulness.

  • To give generously of my time, talents and resources.

  • To ensure the HOME Spiritual Center and its community thrives now and into the future.

Our Foundation the 91st Psalm 

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.


I will say of the Lord, “He/She is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”

He/She will cover you with his/her feathers, and under his/her wings you will find refuge; his/her faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.

A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.


You will only observe with your eyes and witness the experience of the disconnected.

If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.

For he/she will command his/her angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

“Because they love me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue them; I will protect them, for they acknowledge my name.


They will call on me, and I will answer them; I will be with them in trouble, I will deliver them and honor them.


With long life I will satisfy them and show them my salvation.”

Psalm 91
