Tenacre A Ministry of Christian Scientists

Man, governed by immortal Mind, is always beautiful and grand. Each succeeding year unfolds wisdom, beauty, and holiness.
(Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, 246:23)

Tenacre’s Christian Scientists-in-Residence program invites active Christian Scientists to join a community bound together by their love of Christian Science and desire to participate in Tenacre’s mission and ministry.

Tenacre’s mission statement, “to cherish and demonstrate the truths of Christian Science and to apply these truths to every aspect of living and working together,” is the umbrella for the ministries described on our website. They include Christian Science Nursing Department, Homecare, Tenacre School of Christian Science Nursing, Christian Scientists-in-Residence, Tenacre Visitor Accommodations, and the Spiritual Resource Library.

Just as an artist-in-residence brings artistic skills to an arts community, our residents share with Tenacre their rich and varied lives spent in loving God. We cherish their prayers, insights, and sharing which provide warmth and richness to our community canvas. In return, Tenacre is committed to encouraging and supporting their natural expression of independence and spiritual growth within the Tenacre community.

Tenacre is conveniently located one hour from Philadelphia, PA and New York City. Our campus is situated in a peaceful neighborhood on 68 acres of beautifully maintained grounds with lovely wooded walking trails.
