Connecting the New Thought community through Consciousness and Love

Member Benefits

ANTN is a network of support for empowered, Spirit-led, vision-driven, New Thought churches, centers, organizations, independent ministries and individuals.  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 and as an independent ministry or individual, 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.

E-Newsletters

While it is our intention never to inundate you with emails, we send out the ANTN News and Information e-newsletter once a month to keep you abreast of ANTN happenings.  We also send a separate monthly email inviting you to Thought Leader Thursday.  And, on occasion, additional emails may be sent with timely and pertinent information.

Spiritual Nourishment and Inspiration Through Retreats

Annually, ANTN hosts a multiple-day, in-person as well as virtual Retreat that reflects the evolving spiritual consciousness of our global community. The Retreat provides innovative ideas to support you in personal and professional ways. You will be uplifted and transformed through diverse keynote presentations, workshops and interactive processes.  As a member, you receive a discount on the Retreat registration price. 

In addition to the annual in-person Retreat, we host a FREE one-day Virtual Retreat each year filled with inspiration, music, laughter, connection and, of course, prayer.

Additional Spiritual Nourishment

On the last Thursday of each month, we host Thought Leader Thursday where we come together for a FREE tele-seminar with leading edge New Thought teachers for enriching dialog and discussion. 

Resources

If you are in need of resources such as templates for bylaws, policies and procedures, ceremonies, rituals and other creative endeavors, the vast experience of other ANTN members is available to you. You can find them on the Members Page of this website.
