Integral Ministry

Certificate in Integral Ministry Practice

“Transforming lives and inspiring people to make a positive difference in our world."
UWSI’s education program will now include a path in 2nd Tier Ministry practices—a Certificate in Integral Ministry Practice. This year-long online program is open to New Thought ministers, board/council members, LUTs, practitioners, and lay ministry leaders.
This program is taught by the Revs. Drs. Gary and Jane Simmons and is based upon their lived experience serving at Unity Spiritual Center Spokane, Washington, for nearly six years, as well as the milestones of Dr. Gary’s client ministries. For over a decade, the Simmons have consulted with Ken Wilber and other integral luminaries as they sought to apply integral principles to address the opportunities and challenges of congregational ministry in these chaordic times.
The purpose of this program is to equip ministry leaders and individuals with an understanding of ministry as a living system and the capacity to facilitate an integral approach to cultural evolution. This program offers a new paradigm of ministry practice that is centered upon the fulfillment of purpose in people’s lives. It is a departure from our current ministry practice and its tithing-based funding model to a spiritual cooperative that focuses on the value of ownership, partnership, self-responsibility, and personal integrity. These values form the context for the Integral Ministry Practice.
