Minister, Church of the Spirit, Chicago, for 22 years; Psychic Medium, Founder and President of The Institute for Positive Living
Since 1991 Marrice Coverson has been Pastor of the Church of the Spirit on Chicago’s north side.
Rev. Coverson is an Ordained Minister with an NST degree and holds a CM credential. She served on the National Spiritualist Association of Churches (NSAC) Board of Trustees from 1995-98 and again from 1999 until 2008, the first African-American trustee since 1924. She is a member of the Morris Pratt Institute and has served as Director of the NSAC Department of Missionaries.
Marrice holds an MA (Religious Studies) from Chicago Theological Seminary; MA (Public Administration) from Roosevelt University; BS (Sociology) from Mississippi Valley State University; and attended the Alfred Adler Institute.
In 1998 she founded the Institute for Positive Living, and has served as President since then. She established this organization to address the need for literacy and family unity in underserved Illinois communities. As the heart and soul of this organization, she provides leadership in strategic planning, fundraising, external relations, staff and board development, and also oversees financial management, develops diversified funding to support program expansions, and manages public relations. She served as Executive Director of the Chicago Youth Center from 1989-98, Director of the West Side Learning Center, 1987-89, and Project Coordinator of the Adolescent Family Life Project, Hull House, Chicago, 1982-87.
Marrice’s goal is to assist individuals to understand that there is no death and while we are on this earth plane each of us needs to be responsible for our own happiness or unhappiness.
The information disseminated by NSAC is very compatible with what is learned at Chicago IANDS meetings. Ultimately, we learn that there is no death…..our bodies die, but we don’t, which is the message most Near-Death Experiencers bring back from their after-life journeys.
Rev. Marrice will talk about the history of Spiritualism as well as her own path, speaking about the Spiritualist movement in the USA. She will also be doing private one-on-one sessions on Sunday and Monday, November 10 and 11 in Wilmette. Call 847.251.5758 for more information.
