Spiritual Formation

Spiritual Growth Across the Lifespan

As minister, I support the community of lay and professional leaders in providing nourishment for spiritual growth throughout the congregation. As a former professor of social work, I enjoy developing sessions for spiritual education as well as designing programs for all ages. I have lead and cofacilitated numerous programs for adults, children and youth. Below is a selection of programs I developed for specific emerging needs that weren’t otherwise met by an available program.
