I am an ordained senior minister with the Centers for Spiritual Living, I formerly served as the Director of CSL spiritual community in Raleigh NC, Assistant Staff minister in Chicago, and as Director of Youth and Family Ministries at CSL Palm Desert. In 2011 I founded his CSL focus ministry, “Evoke Peace Now” to serve in addiction recovery and in the community at large. I have developed Spiritual Education curriculum using simple ancient practices and spiritual principles combined with emerging evidence based addiction recovery practices. I support people in developing spiritual practices that have been proven to help those in addiction recovery and in finding a connection with their inner-wisdom and higher power. I coach and guide people in regaining purpose, inner peace, and self-confidence while supporting them in having a greater ability to handling life’s challenges and living a fulfilling life.

Rev. Vince Kueffner
My Spiritual Journey began in Atlanta Georgia at the Atlanta Church of Religious Science with Dr. Kennedy Schulz as my teacher. I moved back to Milwaukee my home town and founded the Milwaukee Church of Religious Science. After 5 years I moved to Sarasota, Florida and worked with the Sarasota Center for Spiritual Living. I returned to the Midwest after a year and used these wonderful principles in my business life and career in Mortgage Lending which I did for over 30 years. The best part of this teaching for me is no matter where I am or what I am doing Spiritual Principles can be used to make any situation better. I now teach a class on the first Wednesday of the month at The Center for Spiritual living, Palm Springs. Every day is an opportunity to express these Principles in many ways, lucky me!
