Mission Statement We endeavor to “stir the spirit” by teaching one to remove blocks along one’s spiritual path.
Motto “Stir the Spirit and Clear the Path”
About Stirring Spirit Ministries is a non-profit, non-denominational organization established on March 7th 2017 by founders: Kelli Kennedy N.D. and Daniel Stapleford. Our unique life experiences have combined into a spiritual vision (to “stir the spirit”) and a physical vision of a sacred space where many inspired ideas can be made manifest.
A Sacred Space 10+ acres is needed to fulfill the vision. This land must be suitable for peaceful wooded walks, self-sustaining farming, summer camp, personal retreats, Quaker worship group, indoor and outdoor classrooms. We don’t have land yet but with our hard work and our faith in God to provide the perfect space and the funds needed.
