Resize Zoe and IRichard’s Story

Over the past 39 years I’ve served as a pastor in 4 different churches.  In October of 2015 I will complete 9 years of service in my current position.  One of the reasons for concluding this phase of my ministry is so that I can devote more time and energy to one of the real passions in my life:  spiritual formation and direction ministry.   In order to prepare myself for this phase of my life and ministry I completed a two year certificate program in Spiritual Formation and Direction from CFDM (see link below).  I continue to grow as a spiritual director and spiritual formation coach.  As a trained spiritual director, I support others in finding the next step on their spiritual path.  My ministry is strongly rooted in the Judaeo-Christian Tradition, but I honor all traditions and practices.

As a part of my own spiritual journey, I meet with my own spiritual director monthly and participate in peer group supervision for spiritual directors which also meets monthly.  I also follow the “Guidelines for Ethical Conduct for Spiritual Directors” from Spiritual Directors International  (http://www.sdiworld.org/)
