Like Jesus on the road to Emmaus (Luke 24:13-35), my desire is to journey alongside you and help you find where God is working in your everyday life. Whether that is through the ministry of spiritual direction, worship and music, or teaching, I hope to help you see where God is working in your life, develop a deeper intimacy with God, and find new and unique ways of serving the Trinitarian God of the Bible.

I have a Certificate in Spiritual Direction from Christos Center for Spiritual Formation, an M.A. in Theology and Culture from Northwest University, and a B.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies from George Fox University. I am a member of EDSA and The Hymn Society.

Spiritual Direction

A Christian spiritual director is a trained listener who will accompany you as you share about your spiritual journey, helping you to notice God’s presence and activity along the way, as well as your personal reactions and responses. Hospitable, confidential, and grounded in biblical truth, spiritual direction is a ministry that helps you grow in prayer and live into your calling as a follower of Christ.” – ESDA
