Our History

Spirit United has a unique history. On January 22, 1999 at 1:00pm, a Seed Community, Spirit United, began with the leadership of Rev. Jan Skogstrom. She and a small group of people were looking for a supportive spiritual community not locked into the dogma of organized religion. They sought a curious open-hearted, loving community who encouraged questioning, active exploration and individual adventuring. They did not find what they wanted, so they began their own. Soon they realized they were a seed community meant to join the movement of shifting what spiritual growth and development looked like and shifting what spiritual community -church looked like. The seed community’s roots grew when the group began meeting in Jan’s home. The first gathering included an Ojibwe prayer and a World Peace prayer. They honored all the loving spiritual belief systems of humanity. The seed’s roots took hold and the group grew filling a void in people’s lives.

Six months later they moved the meetings into the Dharma Zen Center and had their first public gathering. The seed shot a shoot out of the ground and the first newsletter was published. It shared astrological and Zen information in addition to the scheduled gatherings. The essence of the seed began to grow above the ground and was seen by others. The essence of this community nourished many. The nutrients of this community come from many places. One is Sancta Sophia. It was a seminary where folks learned about faith, religions, Ancient Wisdom and Mystery Teachings of the Ages, personal spiritual transformation and more. It was a place where the Divine Feminine emerged, singing a powerful voice taking her place in partnership with the Divine Masculine in an overt way. The Truths shown so brightly, leaves began to open with strong commitment. The sprout grew.

Three months later the Charter Membership celebration where men and women committed to building and supporting this Spirit United Interfaith Church happened. Kids With Spirit, the children’s programming, was launched. A strong musical presence was supported with the first music director, Steven Schmidt. He asked his colleagues, professional musicians like Catherine Wilson, Nancy Cox, Gregg Marquardt, Larry David and more, to become part of our community. The buds now began to bloom as the energy of the unifying principles from all faith traditions and paths demonstrating love, compassion and unity moved. This group focused on supporting psycho-spiritual development of individuals to create personal and global transformation. The stream of skills and teachings coming from esoteric and mystical Christianity, the Ageless Wisdom Teachings, Eastern and Indigenous traditions strengthened Spirit United and it continued to grow. In 2001 Spirit United’s staff increased. The Council of Stewards was launched. And the community moved again settling into the Robinsdale Community Center. Spirit United Interfaith Church gained non-profit status, the first website was created, Kids With Spirit’s first curriculum was written. This was the time when our now minister Rev. Ron Moor was invited to join the Spirit United staff. During this time of our journey, many buds bloomed into amazing flowers.

In 2004, a Capital Campaign gathered enough resources to move again. The community moved to Como Avenue in Minneapolis. Here Spirit United continued to align with the roots of Spirit United to bloom beauty. We strengthened our core once again while allowing the energy of change to flow. In 2005, Jan Skogstom retired allowing Rev. Carolyn Cahill to share her vision and beauty with us. Carolyn brought nutrients to Spirit United giving rich opportunities for personal spiritual transformation and community growth and development. In 2009 when Carolyn left to move into the next phase of her journey, Rev. Ron Moor became the minister. Ron continues to nourish Spirit United amidst the energy of change and transformation for individuals, communities, countries, the world and beyond. The blossoms, flowers and leaves of our community continues to bring beauty to the world.

Spirit United embraces our part as seed community within the growing global community anchoring the vision of harmony, of peace, love and justice for all. We continue to integrate the time-honored traditions from the unifying principles of spiritual practices and faiths, the essence from which Spirit United is founded in balance with the reality of living in today’s world. Spirit United has a history of acceptance, supportive love, and adventurous exploration. Spirit United is a group of individuals mindful of spiritual growth, planetary growth and Oneness with the Divine. We support individual spiritual unfolding by providing opportunities to awaken to the heart, to soul’s purpose. We co-create a beautiful world of love, peace and harmony. We continue to strengthen our roots, trunk, and branches as we leaf out and flower.

Today we are expanding our canopies of leaves, branches and flowering. We focus on co-creating our more beautiful world by offering classes, events and gatherings to enhance our mental, emotional, physical and spiritual growth and development. We see ourselves as a wellness center and spiritual community here for you to grow and heal, become more whole, and connect with the Divine Oneness of all that is.
