In the spring of 2020 I began the three year training process to receive my certification in Spiritual Direction through Southern Methodist University’s Perkins School of Theology. I wanted to add some tools to my tool bag that would deepen my practice of congregational consulting and clergy coaching. For me, Spiritual Direction made sense with my philosophy of congregational consulting. I don’t market a one-size fits all model or a program I recommend regardless of context and resources. When I consult with congregations, it involves clear goals and deliverables but also deep institutional and organizational listening.
As my study and practice of Spiritual Direction has deepened, so has my appreciation for it as a spiritual tool for many of the ministers I work with in a variety of settings. While I have over the years utilized Spiritual Direction for my own discernment, I discovered a deep appreciation for the spiritual practice of Spiritual Discipline in this uncertain time in leadership, ministry and in the world.
I am now in the practicum part of my education, which means I am excited to share, I can take on directees as a student Director.
