Spiritual Friendship in MarriageSaturday June 1st, 9 am to 1 pm Workshop by Bill & Kristi Gaultiere At The Crossing Church in Costa Mesa
We offer private retreats of one or two days for individual ministry leaders, ministry couples, and church groups. Soul Therapy days are affordable and customized for you. These retreats feature meditation on Bible passages, extended silence and solitude with Jesus, and guided sharing and prayer in community. Soul Therapy Days can include intensive counseling or spiritual direction. They also can be oriented toward discerning God’s direction.
We lead monthly spiritual formation groups in Irvine, CA. Bill leads groups for male pastors and Kristi leads groups for pastor’s wives and women in ministry. Each month we offer small group meetings and/or retreat days that are free of charge. Prospective participants can contact Bill or Kristi.
We Can Speak for Your Group
Since 1986 we’ve been leading seminars, classes, and retreats customized for specific groups at various churches, homes, and other settings. For instance, one such group that meets monthly at the home of one of our Soul Shepherding Board members is called “Intimacy with Jesus.” (Most of our ministry events are private like this and are not listed on this page.) Contact us to explore how we can help your church or group.
