CMC Associate Ministers are legally ordained CMC ministers who take active roles, in some agreed upon manner, in performing the CMC's healing mission. Rev. Tony Ponticello currently serves as the CMC's Executive Minister and is therefore not on this list. He was originally ordained by the California Miracles Foundation on June 17, 1986. That organization no longer exists. He was also ordained by the CMC on October 17, 1997 and was the CMC's 20th minister.

CMC Mission Statement: The Community Miracles Center is a worldwide community for anyone who is interested in the spiritual teaching A Course in Miracles. We are on the "Great Crusade" in learning how to forgive the world that we are in. We do that by LISTENING to guidance from Holy Spirit or our Higher Power, LEARNING about true cause and effect, and actively DOING things to shift the errors in perception. Our mission is to transform the world we see into a reflection of Heaven and manifest the "Real World." We do this locally, nationally, and internationally.

"Any church which does not inspire love has a hidden altar which is not serving the purpose for which God intended it. I must found His church on you because you who accept me as a model are literally my disciples. Disciples are followers, but if the model they follow has chosen to save them pain in all respects, they are probably unwise not to follow him." (OrEd.Tx.6.12)
