The Benefits of Membership

Independent Ministries and Metaphysical Churches of all sizes since 1992.
ANTN represents diverse spiritual communities and unique ministries serving worldwide.
ANTN believes Divine Consciousness is the sole authority.
Opportunities for Transformation, Connection and Community
ANTN provides you with Maximum Freedom. ANTN supports your individual and/or center ministry to have the freedom to decide your own by-laws, develop curriculum, license Practitioners and Ministers, and set requirements regarding your own members, size, location and focus.
ANTN provides you with spiritual nourishment and inspiration through its Annual Conference. Each conference reflects the evolving spiritual consciousness of our global community. The conference provides innovative ideas to support you in your ministry. You will be uplifted and transformed through diverse keynote presentations, workshops and interactive processes. It also provides you with a greater connection to other ANTN members and attendees. See the photos from our last conference. Click here to see slide show of the last conference.
(Rev. Dr. Kim Yalda, Chair)
ANTN offers you training and workshops on Visioning. Our committee provides educational opportunities, seminars and workshops, empowering members to learn Visioning processes.
(Rev. Susan Sirutis, Chair)
ANTN supports you in your ministry with a Team of Mentors. Experienced members will address your ministerial needs, upon request, on an individual basis. Tele-seminars, provided by ANTN mentors, are held throughout the year addressing ministerial topics. Click here to see the list of mentors. (Rev. Anna Marie Trotman, Chair)
