Member Benefits

ANTN is a worldwide network that includes New Thought centers, churches, organizations, independent ministries and ministers, Religious Science practitioners, licensed Unity teachers and chaplains, authors, speakers, musicians, podcasters, students and others who embrace New Thought principles, but don’t necessarily fit in any of those categories. In other words, ANTN includes you! We believe Divine Consciousness is the sole authority and value transformation, connection and community.

Maximum Freedom

ANTN supports organizations’ and individuals’ autonomy. Organizations have the freedom to decide their bylaws, organizational structure, etc.  Churches and centers have the independence to develop their own curriculum, license their own lay leaders and Ministers and set requirements regarding their own members, size, location and focus.  And, there is no restriction on them belonging to any other New Thought umbrella organization.

You Have a Voice

You are eligible and strongly encouraged to vote at our Annual Meeting held each year at our Retreat.  As a church, center or organization, you have two votes.  With an individual or family membership, you have one.

Global Connection

Membership provides a global connection to Independent Ministries and Centers, which include Senior and staff minister(s), practitioners and congregants, as well as to New Thought organizations and individuals with diverse backgrounds.

For Center Ministers

You have a network of ministers and speakers for occasional or long-term needs. We also provide support in your ministerial search through “open pulpit” postings.  And, you are invited to participate in the ministers-only Facebook Discussion Group to share ideas and best practices.

Resources
As a benefit to our valued members, we have a section of this website dedicated to Resources available to pulpit ministers, independent ministers and spiritual leaders of all types. These Resources include weddings, ceremonies, rituals, processes, spiritual activities, etc.

ANTN Member Books

Members can promote their published books on the website, where New Thought colleagues around the world can find them!

        

The ANTN Book Project

In 2022, ANTN published "New Thoughts for Today" featuring over 200 inspirational articles by dozens of ANTN members.

It's available on Amazon and through this website.

Volume 2 is in progress now!

ANTN's second book, to be written by ANTN members and slated for publication in mid-2024, will be an anthology of stories, parables, poems, and other art forms aimed at demonstrating ways in which transformation occurs. The submissions are intended to show how the contributors have moved from experiences that no longer served them into expressions of greater livingness in areas such as prosperity, love, relationships, creativity, purpose and self-worth.

What Members Have to Say about ESP 

Receiving the gift of tech support through the Extraordinary Support Project as a church has given us leverage to reach our congregation and an audience further than we ever expected. Our upgraded systems and our tech savviness have increased giving us much wider access. We are also experiencing a much stronger sense of our competency and our ability to translate what it is we are doing in our organization and in our services to a greater number of people beyond our walls. We are so deeply grateful to receive this support, and we know that it is taking us to the places we really want to go technically, professionally, and with our message of Love.

ANTN member center

I am currently receiving one-on-one mentoring through ANTN’s ESP. I have been able to bring my whole self as a minister to these mentoring conversations, to be seen fully in those things with which I am grappling and to be witnessed, advised, heard and prayed into answers that are astonishing, forward thinking, embracing of all and blessing the process. These meetings are nothing short of empowering and substantially worthwhile for every aspect of my ministry, bringing me to see them as priceless on the journey to my spiritual maturity as a minister. Thank you, ANTN, for this program.

Rev. K.

I just wanted to reach out to acknowledge the amazing generosity of ANTN's Extraordinary Support Project. I applied for a grant to help me check off one of the events at the top of my bucket list (Parliament of World Religions), and not only did I receive a positive response, but I received it within 12 hours of submitting my application! I know that ANTN holds as one of its highest goals the support of its members, and this is clearly proof that at ANTN, our job is to make “Yes!” happen. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
