About MiraclesOne

Rev. Deb Phelps is the Senior Minister of MiraclesOne. She has been teaching A Course in Miracles for 25+ years. She is the author of several ACIM-based books. Rev. Deb, along with her husband, Rev. Paul Phelps, have regularly presented to the large ACIM Conference gatherings in San Francisco, Chicago, Cleveland, and 2015 in New York City, to name a few. They are seasoned teachers who not only know the Course but live the Course in their everyday lives. Their loving demonstration of ACIM principles has inspired many.

We cannot do this ministry without our wonderful Ministry Team who assist us in facilitating classes in Madison and with long distance students, recording audios, answering emails and writing posts, leading our aspects of our ministry, and many other programs and services that we offer.

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.

Let’s be frank. This is a volunteer ministry. All of our ministers, facilitators and others are 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?



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 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 teaching of ACIM. It offers services, meditation, retreats, and social activities. It also offers classes, a ministerial track, counseling, online and telephone study groups, and online video classes.  At MiracleOne, the focus is always on practical application of ACIM and on learning to connect with our Inner Teacher, the Holy Spirit. The result is a world-wide 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.
