A New Year’s baby with a Catholic up-bringing in southwest Louisiana, Doug Moody, RScP, Music and Sunday Celebration Lead, moved to Atlanta after graduating from LSU in 1985.  He soon discovered Religious Science in January 1986 under the ministry of Rev. Kennedy Shultz at the Woodruff Arts Center.  Following a Master of Science Degree in Commercial Real Estate Finance and a 1988 job transfer to Washington, DC, Doug relocated back to Atlanta in 1995 and eagerly returned to Dr. Shultz’s services and classes.

He began and completed the CSL course work all the way up to Practitioner level.  Doug headed “the call” to Practitioner Classes and service in 2013 and completed his Practitioner studies via The Holmes Institute.  Doug is grateful for the opportunity of studying, learning, and interacting with fellow Practitioners from Religious Science communities from across the USA and Canada in its weekly on-line class format.  His Practitioner studies were capped by a retreat and graduation in California under the mentorship of Dr. Reverend Christina Tillotson in June 2015 where he met and instantly resonated with Dr. Reverend Bob Deen.  Doug has served as a licensed Religious Science Practitioner with CSL Midtown since.

Doug’s most admired inspiration is Mother Nature and often feels most “at home” out in the wilderness – camping, hiking, skiing, paddling, snorkeling, writing, or meditating.  Doug is an Eagle Scout, a pianist and composer, a genealogist, a foodie and cook, an avid gardener, and has worked in his Commercial Real Estate consulting practice (SITUS Properties, LLC) for the past thirteen years as a Licensed Real Estate Broker in Georgia, Florida, and North Carolina.  Doug is blessed with a most wonderful and supportive family, his beloved partner of over 22 years, community member Gregg Pavlak, and their English Labrador Retriever.  He treasures CSL Midtown – its staff, Ministers, fellow Practitioners, volunteers, and each of its members with love, support, and heartfelt joy in re-discovering and bringing forth the Spiritual Magnificence of every soul.
