Open Arms Metaphysical Church is a faith-based community rooted in the love of God, the Most High Creator. We believe union with The Most High is not just found in church; it’s a daily core practice. Our philosophy is deeply rooted in knowing our God-self through inner transformation and the spiritual guidance of the Holy Word.  Come and join us to experience the presence of The Most High in every aspect of your life.  There’s a place for you at Open Arms Metaphysical Church.

OUR PASTOR

 

Rev. Dr. LaToya Major-McIntosh is an avid educator and life-long learner.  She is a mother of 3 wonderful children and wife of an amazing life partner. She is a sister and a daughter in families who support and love her. She earned degrees in middle grades and leadership education with the goal of supporting teachers and students in achieving academic excellence.  Beyond this work, LaToya found an interest in learning more about biblical principles, how these principles apply to everyday living, and life beyond the physical realm.  In seeking knowledge, she enrolled at the University of Sedona where she learned more about the spiritual aspects of life and how to apply the teachings of Christ.  Here, LaToya earned a Doctor of Metaphysical Science and was ordained as a Metaphysical Minister and certified as a Metaphysical Practitioner in 2020.  Her life’s purpose is to evolve spiritually and help others do the same through education and ministry.
