Welcome toThe Soul-Esteem Center (SEC) welcomes you into an inspiring, uplifting and loving atmosphere that embraces all people from any background. We are a non-denominational, independent spiritual community here to inspire and encourage each other on our individual journeys. The term “soul-esteem” means “confidence at the level of one’s soul.” As we increase our soul-esteem, we come to see ourselves as spiritual beings having a human experience, realizing that we are individualized expressions of the One Power, Presence and Divine Intelligence that we call God.
The Soul-EsteemTM Center!
Our services are every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. Come join us and journey into spiritual confidence through prayer, inspirational messages, classes, events, seminars and fun-loving activities.
We have a Youth Department for all ages, a staff of wonderful ministers and spiritual mentors, a variety of talented musicians to lift your spirit at Sunday services, and a number of small group ministries. Please explore this site and learn more about our purpose and mission, principles and practices, calendar of events and location.
See you soon!
Rev. Phylis founded The SEC in 1997, and continues as the Senior Minister and Spiritual Director. Learn more about Phylis and the history of The Center on our About The Soul-Esteem Center page.

Upcoming Sunday Messages
July 20, 2014Message: The Mystery of the Invisible
Speaker: Rev. Phylis Clay Sparks
Music: Deborah Sharn & Steve Schenkel
Most of us navigate this thing called life thinking that we are separate from God, separate from each other, and that the air between us is empty space. The Truth is, that which seems invisible is thick with Spirit; thick with every idea that has ever been conceived, and will ever be conceived and brought forward into the world of form. Learn about interacting with Infinite Intelligence in a way that calls forth that which has been there all along! July 27, 2014Message: Developing a Healing Consciousness
Speaker: Rev. Phylis Clay Sparks
Music: Brian Clarke
A healing consciousness is one that truly accepts and realizes that we are “heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ.” This means that we are meant to be receivers, or instruments through which all of God’s wholeness and well-being pours Itself; that is, when we stop interfering! August 3, 2014Message: Don't Step on the Hose!
Speaker: Marilyn Harper
Music: Danielle Feinstein
Learn about the butterfly effect and how making small changes in your home or in one area of your life will flutter into all other aspects of your life, especially areas where you’ve been “stuck” for years.
