Many Rivers Ministries


Many Rivers Ministries is an inclusive, creative, loving, authentic, and active ministry that loosens the burdens of religion and helps lead people to their spiritual authority through a lifetime of learning and loving from the Divine source within.

Premarital & Relationship Counseling

Rev. Stephanie graduated from One Spirit Learning Alliance in 2011 and since has been helping clients reach relationship goals through open, honest, heartfelt dialogue, group and individual exercises, and active listening.

 Many Rivers Ministries is the first interfaith and/or non-religious organization to become a certified FOCCUS Inc. Facilitator in the Charlotte Metro area. We are also able to work remotely via desktop meetings or conference calls. FOCCUS works to foster open communication in all types of relationships. For example, young newlyweds, those marrying for a 2nd or 3rd time, those who are marrying after the death of a previous spouse, those living together, those with children together, those with children from previous ...relationships, etc. FOCCUS is known both internationally and globally with over 8,000 facilitator organizations in 30 different countries. A huge amount of research has gone into the "inventory" that is used so that it has been well-tailored to assist us in finding your strengths, building on those, and finding areas where your relationships could use some extra love and care.

Weddings


Many Rivers Ministries makes it easy for you to experience a unique and memorable wedding day. All that we ask is for you to complete a questionnaire with your partner.  From there, Reverend Stephanie will use your answers to co-create a ceremony that reflects your vision of how the day might look and feel.  Reverend Stephanie has written hundreds of custom ceremonies ranging from intimate tiny elopements or "Pop Up Weddings" to grand ballroom black tie events with wedding parties in the double digits and hundreds of guests in attendance! No wedding is too big or too small. All are treated with equal love, care, and attention.

Spiritual Companionship

Spiritual direction is the process of accompanying people on a spiritual journey. It helps people tell their sacred stories every day.  It is companionship in a context that emphasizes growing closer to God (or the holy or a higher power). It invites a deeper relationship with the spiritual aspect of being human. It offers a place to explore prayer practices, meditation, spiritual experiences, and our growing desire for significance.

Spiritual direction is specific to YOUR spiritual journey. If you are taking the first steps to learn to pray, or have been meditating for decades, spiritual direction is valuable. Taking into consideration your unique personality and temperament, spiritual direction is a place to reflect on how to pray, your ongoing or unfolding spiritual practices, and the stages of spiritual development in the life of a sincere seeker. Like prayer, contemplation, and meditation, spiritual direction nourishes the spiritual aspect of being human, allowing us to serve with authenticity and grateful hearts.
