ENTC members participate in the ANTN Conference in Scottsdale

Animal Chaplains

It was wonderful to attend the recent Affiliated New Thought Network conference for ministers and practitioners that was held again this year at the Franciscan Retreat Center in Arizona.  I had the opportunity to talk with several ENTC members in attendance.  Rev. Dr. Don Chatfield and I got to chat (ha ha) about the ENTC Newsletter.  As you know, Don is the layout editor of the newsletter AND he received his ENTC ordination at the Emerson Ordination Ceremony as did Kris and Craig Haley.  Don shared some ideas for upcoming  newsletter issues.  Several people at the conference said how great the latest newsletter looked and that the content was excellent!  Hats off to ENTC Affiliates!!

ENTC members Rev. Drs. Kris and Craig Haley presented graduation diplomas to 8 persons completing their animal chaplain work! Five of them are featured above. You can see a video of their part of the Emerson Graduation on youtube at angeloplc1.

Many ideas were also shared by ENTC member Rev. Dr. Mike Dearing and his wife from Noblesville, Indiana.  Mike and his wife have a wedding ministry serving a large geographic area.  Mike’s recent Doctorate project was on the topic of creating an awesome wedding website.  You can check out his personal website at:  www.onespiritwedding.com.  Mike indicated indicated an interest in having an advertising space in the ENTN newsletter.  Great idea!

ENTC member Rev. Dr. Marilyn Hall offered an informative session on “A Glimpse into the 4th Dimension, Seminary of the Sierra”.  This program, based out of San Diego area offers the dynamic opportunities for ministers to go deepen their spiritual growth.  Their website is seminarySIERRA@aol.com.

Other beloved ENTC members Rev. Dr Frank and Rev Theresa zumMallen offered conference attendees early morning meditations.

And last, but certainly not least, Rev Dr. Angelo Pizelo was the Keynote speaker on Wednesday morning, April 18th.  His topic was “Igniting the Human Potential”.  He had attendees  smiling with love and roaring with laughter.
