Spiritual Directors and Co-Pastors, Revs. Christy Snow & Renee’ Leboa ~ accepted their current positions as our Spiritual Leaders on January 16, 2005. They brought to the position of ministry 5 years of experience in assisting people in realizing their connection with God, all of life and their innate goodness and limitless potential via their traveling music ministry. From 2000 until 2005, they were each individually and collectively guest speakers, guest musicians and workshop facilitators at various churches, community centers, conferences and other venues across the country. Their speaking and singing experience combined resulted in being guest presenters at over 300 churches during that 5 year period and from that experience they gleaned an energetic and sensible model for our Spiritual Community, based on the synthesis of knowledge they gained. Through Revs. Renee’ & Christy’s wisdom and leadership the center grew in membership within the first six months of their ministry from a Sunday attendance of 35 to 85. Within their first 18 months of ministry, the membership grew in consistent attendance to over 150 active members, who now have strong and active roots within the Spiritual Living Center and outreaching into valued work in Charlotte and in the world. Before Rev’s Renee’ and Christy’s leadership our community did not have children’s program, a bookstore or a music program.
Through their commitment to living the teaching of the Science of Mind, they have taught by example a philosophy that values everyone and all paths to God and recognizes the value and importance of each individual’s own personal responsibility to their spiritual growth and how that growth affects the larger whole.
With their background as professional touring musicians, understandably music is an important element in each of our services. Rev. Renee’ says, “Music prepares the soil of the mind to receive the gift in the message.” Rev. Christy says, “Music opens our hearts and allows Spirit to move into and through us.” They both feel that music moves us into a place of allowing and that “without music life would just be a bit boring.”
Our Spiritual Leaders and Co-Pastors bring passion and compassion to every service, love and laughter to every encounter. They raise us up by reminding us of who we are and how loved we are, as they are always teaching us that we are all unique expressions of God in this life.
