Meet Our Ministers
Co-Spiritual Leader, Reverend Cheryl Bell
Rev. Cheryl Bell has served the Las Vegas Center for Spiritual Living as a licensed Practitioner since 2010. She became a Minister in June of 2014 and, as of October 2017, an ordained Minister of Religious Science. She was first introduced to Religious Science by a good friend and fellow minister, Rev. Staci Hylton, and has been a student of New thought for more than 25 years.
She is coming from a corporate management background. It was natural for her to step into the role of administrator for the Las Vegas Center for Spiritual Living for these past ten years.
Her understanding of the Science of Mind™ philosophy, principles, and her willingness to continue studying the works not only of Ernest Holmes, its founder but other New Thought teachers led her to her current role not only as an administrator but also as Co-Senior Minister.
She feels that all of it allows her to fulfill her mission. To Awaken those around her to their Spiritual Magnificence and to Create a World that works for all.
Co-Spiritual Leader, Staci Hylton
My great grandfather, J. Arthur Twyne, founded what is now known as Eastside Church of Religious Science. (currently known as LA Third in Los Angeles, CA); therefore, Religious Science has always been a part of my life. I grew up attending Founder’s Church in Los Angeles, CA and as an adult attended Agape International Spiritual Center in Culver City, CA, but it was not until I attended classes at the Las Vegas Center for Spiritual Living that I truly understood the principles that have always been with me.
The past several years have enriched my life immensely. I have met people on their spiritual path and now have a sense of purpose and intention for my own life. Licensed as a Professional Practitioner in 2010, I am a member of the Center’s Board of Trustees, and completed my Ministerial studies in June 2014. My vision for my ministry is to use my gifts and talents and the tools learned in Religious Science to teach people to know their own magnificence. I want people to live from a place of authenticity and realize that each and every one of us is love and loved and we all have special gifts to share. I know that this realization will create more acceptance and love and therefore change the world as we now know it.
I am now serving as Co-Senior Minister along with Rev. Cheryl Bell. My duties include Volunteer Management with Rev. Cheryl Bell, and I am also Minister to the Professional Licensed Practitioners. I am also passionately heading up our community outreach. My passion is teaching and I strongly believe in the education of the Practitioners. Practitioners do so much and give so much of their time that they really hold up our Center. I believe it is important to have at least one person dedicate themselves to their continued education and well-being. It is a job that certainly gives back, however it seems to me caregivers don’t always do well when it comes to taking care of themselves. I am taking on the responsibility to ensure that they are appreciated, uplifted and inspired.
It is truly my pleasure to serve my community. Contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Center Founder
Reverend Cynthia Clair
The Center – A Model for Positive Living, as LVCSL is also known as, was founded in September 2001 shortly after she relocated from California to Las Vegas. Reverend Cynthia initially became a minister in Thousand Oaks in 1990. The following year she was honored to become the Pastor of the Center for Positive Living in Camarillo, California. She became an Ordained Minister in 1996.
After arriving to Las Vegas, she became the founding Chaplain for the newly opened Summerlin Medical Center. As a result of unselfish devotion to be of service, she was offered a room in this facility to set up a new spiritual center.
This was the beginning of her vision to manifest a new Center in the Las Vegas area. From that moment, her vision has continued to grow and provide spiritual guidance, as well as insight to families, individuals in the greater Las Vegas community it serves. Rev. Cynthia Clair, made the prayerful decision to retire on March 2015 and made her transition in August, 2016.
