What is a Christian Science practitioner?
All Christian Scientists “practice” their religion daily, using it to heal everything from physical illnesses to relationships or employment problems. Some members, however, devote themselves to the full-time professional ministry of Christian healing.
Such a practice requires Bible study, consecrated prayer, and a demonstrated ability to apply spiritual understanding to the overcoming of human ills and discords. Preparations include completing a 12-day course of study with an authorized teacher of Christian Science and a record of successful healing of others.
A directory of Christian Science practitioners, listed by location and telephone number, is published monthly in the Christian Science Journal. Practitioners work with the general public as well as church members and would be happy to speak with you at any time. Please note that practitioners sustain themselves with this work, so they do charge for their services.
