Meet our Senior Minister

Rev Rebecca Allen

Prior to accepting the position as Senior Minister of Circle’s Edge Center for Spiritual Living, Reverend Rebecca Allen was a staff minister at the Albuquerque Center for Spiritual Living. For two years, she officiated over the Wednesday Night Gratitude Service.

Reverend Rebecca holds a Master’s Degree in Consciousness Studies from the San Diego campus of Holmes Institute, as well as a Bachelor of Science degree in Mass Communications from the University of Southern Colorado in Pueblo, Colorado.

Before stepping into her ministry full-time, Rev. Rebecca was a drug and alcohol counselor. She worked with men and women who were on probation or parole for drug related offenses and who also were diagnosed with a mental health issue. In that setting, she says, it is clear to see Spirit in action and the amazing way that miracles can happen, even under circumstances that we might judge as negative.

As a practitioner of Religious Science principles for over 30-years, Rev. Rebecca fully trusts the power of affirmative prayer. With humor, joy and gentle nudging, she guides the Circle’s Edge family into a richer understanding of their divine nature and a fuller recognition of their spiritual potential.

You are invited to visit a service to meet Rev. Rebecca in person.
