Willeta Lingle
Tulsa CSL Music Director

I have been a part of Tulsa CSL for 48 years. When I first attended Tulsa CSL, which at that time was known as the Science of Mind Center of Tulsa, Dr. Jean Amos was the minister. That day she was explaining “creation,” and I was enthralled! I had finally found a great philosophy with which I could resonate.

I was the youth teacher for a few years, and have been with the music team and now Music Director for years as well.

I am an RScP (Registered Science of Mind Practitioner – meaning I offer prayer and spiritual support to anyone in need), and currently lead the Wednesday evening drum circle as well.

I am blessed for CSL Tulsa and our amazing spiritual family!

Tulsa CSL Member-At-Large

I found the Science of Mind philosophy in 1998 in a center in Spokane, WA.  I joined CSL Tulsa in 2004.

With this philosophy, I have made many changes in my life and continue to do so.

My life’s mission is to continue expanding consciousness not only for myself but for expanding the consciousness of the planet.

Tulsa CSL Member-At-Large

I have been a member of Tulsa CSL since December 2019. I have enjoyed learning the philosophy of SOM and have found that it has shaped my views tremendously.

Perhaps the part that has most influenced me is that everything on our outsdie world is dictated by what is happening on our inside world. It truly is an inside job.

My favorite quote by Ernest Holmes is “keep knocking on the door of your conciousness until every negation an affirmation, every no a yes.”

Chris Meyers-Baker
Tulsa CSL Member-At-Large & Singer

Chris Baker retired in 2016 from Tulsa Community College where she taught Humanities for 42 years.  She has been affiliated with the Center for Spiritual Living for nearly 5 decades — taking classes, doing the special music once a month and, more recently, giving the message once a month as well. 

“I feel that the spiritual message of this church is very important to both the advancement of the individual and of society as a whole. We must learn that it is our own thoughts and feelings that determine our life experience and not some anonymous ‘They’.”

Rev. Jeff Staton
Tulsa CSL Senior Minister

I am so excited to serve as Senior Minister at Tulsa Center for Spiritual Living where we build community as we deepen in spiritual practices! I got my spiritual jump start in 2001, when I was dragged by my wife to the Center for Spiritual Living in Las Vegas. It ended up being a love at first sight experience. I immediately enrolled in Foundations class, joined the church board, then continued coursework all the way through to becoming a Licensed Spiritual Practitioner in 2008. After moving to Tulsa, I completed my Master’s Degree in Consciousness Studies from the Holmes Institute and in 2014 was ordained as a Minister of Religious Science.

As a minister, I bring an open, inclusive heart, and a dedication to nurturing people’s relationship and connection, to Spirit and each other.  At Tulsa CSL, I love supporting our community as we explore and set intentions for what we want to see in our lives and in the world, utilizing meditation, prayer, visioning, acts of service, and taking spirit-lead action.

Let’s grow together!
