About MiraclesOne

Rev. Deb Phelps is the Senior Minister of MiraclesOne. She has been teaching A Course in Miracles for 26+ years. She is the author of several A Course in Miracles-based books. Rev. Deb and Rev. Paul Phelps, are renowned, seasoned and beloved teachers who not only know the Course but live and apply the Course in their everyday lives. Their down-to-earth and loving demonstration of ACIM principles has inspired many.

We cannot do this world-wide ministry without our wonderful and supportive Ministry Team who assist us in facilitating study groups and retreats in Madison and with online study groups and classes as well as personal sessions with long-distance students. They assist too with recording our podcasts, answering emails and writing posts, leading certain aspects of our ministry, and many other programs and services that we offer. We see MiraclesOne as a collaborative venture and welcome all to join us.

And, we certainly cannot do it without your financial support. We were legally formed as a church in 2005 in the State of Wisconsin so your donations are tax-deductible.


So, let’s be frank. This is a volunteer ministry. All of our ministers, facilitators, and others are strictly volunteers. They put time into creating programs and classes and events, they answer questions and phone calls, they edit videos and audios, they pay the bills and expenses that arise each month. They serve because they feel guided to do so. Would you believe we are a staff of less than a handful? Would you belive too that these volunteers either manage their own businesses or work regular jobs? They do it because they love to serve the mission of MiraclesOne and want to support what we offer freely to A Course in Miracles students. 


 

MiraclesOne Co-Founders, Volunteers and Ministry Team

Rev. Deborah Phelps, Senior Minister, and Co-Founder
Rev. Paul Phelps, Co-Founder
 

Revs. Deb and Paul Phelps co-founded MiraclesOne. The center grew out of the ACIM study group and internet radio ministry that Deb ran for many years first in Pittsburgh, PA, before she and Paul moved to Madison, WI, in 2004. MiraclesOne is legally established as a non-traditional church and center based on the teachings of A Course in Miracles. It offers a plethora of free online resources, study groups, meditation, retreats, and social activities. It also offers online classes, a ministerial track, and spiritual direction counseling.  At MiracleOne, the focus is always on the practical application of ACIM and on learning to connect with our Inner Teacher, the Holy Spirit. As we do this, the result is a worldwide community of ACIM students who join together to support each other and grow in their awareness of the Loving Presence within.  MiraclesOne is a community, a place to belong while we are “not at Home.”

Rev. Paul’s spiritual awakening began in the late 1990’s when he said to God, “There’s got to be a better way!” He was led to Neale Donald Walsch’s book Conversations with God then to A Course in Miracles, which he began studying in 2001. After practicing the Workbook lessons,  Paul began to perceive the visible Light of Christ and to hear the Voice for God with unmistakable clarity. He is the co-founder of MiraclesOne Center for ACIM and teaches the weekly Tuesday night Learning ACIM study group and offers Sunday Messages.
