Rev. Dr. Carla Ryan was living the Science of Mind principles long before she was aware of the philosophy or terminology on that first Sunday morning in 1993. Eventually she became an ordained Religious Science Minister and had the privilege of leading two Religious Science Churches; one in Parker, CO and the other in Pagosa Springs, CO. While her spiritual beliefs are based in the New Thought realm, she continues to evolve as a practicing Interfaith Minister.

Now based in Grand Junction, Colorado, she continues to do volunteer work with the Grand Valley Interfaith Network (GVIN). Her continuing interest in Interfaith studies allows her to connect with local faith leaders and to be an example of how various religious organizations can work together for the good of a community.

As an independent Interfaith Minister, Dr. Carla’s focus and ministry continue to evolve. Teaching is her passion, especially when it comes to the New Thought philosophy. She is currently developing a workshop (to share with other women) about her method/practice of healing trauma (domestic violence) through narrative writing and other art forms. She is pursuing research in the area of sacred architecture and its impact on religious rituals through the centuries and many faiths, and into the New Thought movement… with the intent to create a reference book on this topic.
