sheryl-headshot-practitionerRev. Sheryl Rogers

970-270-3136 (call only) • wrldpez50@gmail.com 

Sheryl Rogers walked into a Center for Spiritual Living in the early 1970s and knew she had found a spiritual home. “The Science of Mind and Spirit teachings make so much more sense to me than traditional Christianity,” she says. Sheryl became an ordained minister and now acts as a prayer practitioner. She has also taught many classes.

Her vision for the Center is to see it grow in numbers and in consciousness, continuing to be a beacon of spiritual truth in our community, as well as making a difference in the lives of both the spiritual community and the community at large.

Science of Mind and Spirit has given her a more positive and accepting outlook on life. She respects her choices and the choices of others non-judgmentally. Her intention is to continue her spiritual involvement and share what she has learned with others to help them enhance their lives.


Rev. Dr. Carla Ryan

303-358-0069 (call or text) •  RevCarlaRyan@gmail.com

Carla Ryan was invited to Religious Science in 1993 and has been an enthusiastic student of the Science of Mind philosophy ever since. She loves the “open at the top” idea to expand spiritual consciousness. The teachings help to define one’s beliefs and provide focus on the Highest Good in any situation. Carla shares this passion through constant prayer, classes, and living a life based on Universal Principles and Truths.

Her love for New Thought wisdom prompted her to become a licensed and dedicated Religious Science Practitioner and, eventually, an ordained Minister of Religious Science, as well as being credentialed as an Interfaith Minister. She also holds a BA degree in Communication/Public Relations from Regis University. Carla completed her formal education with a Doctor of Religious Studies and a Doctor of Divinity, both from Emerson Theological Institute.

Carla was the founding minister of an independent Religious Science church in Parker, Colorado, serving that community as its senior minister for five years, before hearing a new call in Pagosa Springs. Her efforts resulted in a New Thought church being formed in Pagosa, before finally moving to Grand Junction and becoming involved with CSL GJ.

She is dedicated to a life of service through ministry and teaching, creating and offering New Thought curriculum. She continues to learn through every experience, interaction, and prayer.

Carla professes, “There is no end to what is possible – in life, in consciousness, in Divine Intelligence. What do you really want? Do and be that!” We always have a choice.


Rev. Dr. Mike Ryan

303-349-5300 (call or text) •  RevDrMikeRyan@gmail.com

Mike Ryan was first introduced to New Thought teachings in the mid-1990s. The Science of Mind philosophy immediately energized his spiritual batteries and ignited a Divine spark that has been shining ever since.

In those early years on the New Thought path, Mike attended nearly every Religious Science class offered, culminating in becoming a licensed Religious Science Practitioner. He is convinced that the focused, two-year Practitioner program is responsible for the profound, positive posture of his life.

The quest for spiritual nourishment didn’t end there. His continued studies resulted in Mike receiving his credential as a Minister of Religious Science and finally ordination, as well as receiving a Doctor of Religious Studies. Mike also holds a B.S. in Computer Science from Regis University. He continues to attend spiritual classes and workshops, as well as being involved in teaching and developing curriculum.

First and foremost, he is a Practitioner. Mike comments, “There is no greater treasure to be found than the Christ consciousness within each seeker. To this endeavor I am truly dedicated.” He advocates for daily prayer and meditation and is a willing servant to this practice.

Debby Powell, RScP

720-648-3674 (call or text) • Hlake4949@gmail.com

Debby Powell discovered the teachings of The Science of Mind and Spirit in 1999, when looking to find a church home for her daughter, who was in high school at the time. Together they tried many different traditional churches, but none of them really resonated. Once they found the Science of Mind and Spirit though, they knew they were home.

Following the teachings of Ernest Holmes and putting into practice the spiritual practices of prayer, meditation and visioning, gave Debby the strength – as a single mother – to build a successful HR career, purchase her own home, and raise two beautiful daughters after emerging from a very rocky and unstable marriage earlier in life. She went on to obtain two degrees from Regis University; a Bachelor’s degree in Human Resource Management and Applied Psychology with a minor in Religious Studies and a Master’s in Organizational Leadership. After finishing these degrees she spent several years studying the Science of Mind and Spirit; finally becoming a licensed Religious Science Practitioner in 2016.

“Change Your Thinking, Change Your Life” is more than just a tagline for Debby. Letting go of negative thinking was the key that opened the door to increased happiness, more fulfilling relationships and greater prosperity in life. Put the tools of prayer, meditation and visioning to work in your life today and see what a difference it can make. Debby’s intention is to assist others along the way in their own spiritual paths to a life of greater fulfillment and joy.
