About Inner Light Ministries
Inner Light Ministries is a nondenominational religious nonprofit organization founded in January, 1997 by Rev. Deborah Johnson. It was conceived as an outreach ministry dedicated to healing, transformation, and teaching the practical application of Universal Spiritual Principles. It has quickly grown into a dynamic umbrella ministry with multiple ministries active within it. Ongoing programs include Sunday Services and the Education Ministry which provides workshops and on-going classes.
While it is a spiritual community, Inner Light Ministries recognizes that it is a member of the larger worldwide spiritual community.
It is not the intent of ILM to provide a “safe harbor” for any one particular socio-demographic profile. Diversity in terms of age, race, class, spiritual background, gender, sexuality, marital status, physical abilities, etc. is encouraged and valued. Appropriate support will be given to assist people in reconciling their “issues” so that they may be more spiritually available.
An important source of funding is monthly pledges from the Inner Light community, including both local participants and virtual participants who join us from all corners of the globe. In addition to these ongoing financial commitments from individuals, Inner Light has been working to diversify its funding sources, so as not to create a dependency on any one avenue.
In keeping with its mission, Inner Light’s future growth lies in the development of its multimedia — particularly web and video — products and services. Its goal is to make Universal Spiritual Principles easily accessible to the public in user-friendly formats, tailored, where appropriate, to meet the needs of specific populations.
The prospects for Inner Light’s future are quite bright. Thank you, Spirit, and thank you, Inner Light community.
