In a world where people largely turn to medical means for healthcare, Wide Horizon provides professional Christian Science nursing care in the Great Plains and Rocky Mountain region — to those seeking healing through complete reliance on Christian Science as taught by Mary Baker Eddy. Christian Science nursing offers non-medical, spiritual-based practical health care. Wide Horizon has been fulfilling this mission for more than 70 years.
Wide Horizon provides a peaceful environment and harmonious atmosphere, wherein the ministry of Christian Science nursing is available to every sincere seeker of Truth. This metaphysically based care is for those who desire to make daily spiritual progress towards a full healing and recovery through radical reliance on Christian Science.
The collective daily prayers of every one of our guests, patients, Christian Science practitioners, staff and board members as well as volunteers has an expectation of spiritual progress and healing. This expectation can be realized in daily experience for all doing this prayerful work.
In accord with the words on the cover of the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, we shall witness daily proofs that Christian Science can and does “cleanse the lepers, heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out demons.”
These blessings of God’s presence and power — of divine Love’s grace and healing touch — are the light on the hill which will draw all who are seeking a fuller understanding of and trust in God.

Blessings from Wide Horizon — An Opportunity for Spiritual Growth
By D. Brian Boettiger
For nearly 16 years in my role as Executive Director of Wide Horizon, I’ve approached this work as being a steward of the organization. This approach includes professionally and prayerfully supporting the continuous good works of Christian Science nursing. Gratefully, I’ve been part of a strong team of staff, volunteers, board members, donors, church members, and guests. This team demonstrates Christianity daily as we collectively continue to provide our services.
To continue these services, it’s also vital that the company has remained solvent in its operations. There have been trials, even tribulations, during these years. Each one has required me to be a more consecrated practitioner of Christian Science. And, the team has become stronger as Wide Horizon has weathered economic downturns and other challenges. Daily gratitude has been a key to witnessing greater good here.
Professionally, I’ve had the opportunity and privilege to be the point person on two substantial and successful building projects at Wide Horizon. For me, prayer and action work together hand-in-hand. During these projects I strived to work from a firm spiritual and professional basis of “wisdom, economy, and brotherly-love” – which began before these projects and continues to this day.
Wide Horizon is “a city set on a hill, a light on a candlestick” and a “structure of Truth and Love” – one that has operated uninterrupted and debt-free for more than 68 years! Many of us work to know Wide Horizon is supplied by Love, and is therefore worthy of its continual sustainability through financial support and daily prayer.
Many guests and patients have been blessed by the remarkable tender spiritual care given by Christian Science nurses. Families often see the holy influence of this care firsthand, which helps to alleviate fear or concern. I’d say every guest, no matter what the human outcome may be, has experienced more fully the Christ, Truth, in their lives. This includes spiritual growth, a greater degree of peace, and a fuller understanding of man’s sacred relationship with God, our heavenly Father.
