Interfaith Ministers have been trained and ordained by the One Spirit Interfaith Foundation, whose history spans back to 1981, when Rabbi Joseph Gelberman founded The New Seminary in New York. Together with religious leaders such as Swami Satchidanand and Methodist minister Rev Jon Mundy he developed a training of committed ministers to serve people of all (and no) faiths.
In 1996 Miranda Holden started The New Seminary in London, which to this day continues to evolve through a deep and profound process and shaped into the One Spirit Interfaith Foundation in 2011.
As Interfaith Ministers we have undertaken an intensive two-year training with the Interfaith Seminary to be of service to persons of all denominations as well as to those on an individual path.

Religions are different roads converging to the same point. What does it matter that we take different roads as long as we reach the same goal. In reality there are as many different religions as there are individuals; that is how it should be.
