Nan Popineau - Soul Shepherding Nan Popineau - Soul Shepherding

Nan serves with Soul Shepherding as a Spiritual Director.  She and her husband, who is an ordained pastor, have partnered together in ministry since 1986.  They have served churches in California, Colorado, and now in Logan, Utah.

She has 27 years of teaching experience, holds a credential in elementary education, and a BA in Psychology.  She recently retired from teaching and enjoys serving in a variety of ministry roles at her church such as media team, hospitality, small group leader, and women’s ministries.

Nan enrolled in the Soul Shepherding Institute as well as the Spiritual Direction training program during a season of transition, personal heartache, and much needed rest.  She received God’s gifts of renewed joy, hope, and peace.  The Institute and Spiritual Direction training have truly been one of the most grounding and healing experiences of her own spiritual journey.  She sees great value in cultivating a sacred space for empathy, centered around prayerful conversations, and God’s loving grace.  Accompanying others on their journey of faith with Jesus, through all seasons of life, is a ministry she is deeply drawn to.

She and her husband live in Logan, Utah and have two adult children.  In her free time, she enjoys hiking, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.


Are you feeling stuck in your faith walk? The healthy Christian life is one of continuing spiritual, emotional, and relational growth, but sometimes we feel stuck or stagnated at one stage of the journey.

Get unstuck and identify the next steps you need to take to grow emotionally and spiritually—no matter where you are or how long you’ve been following Jesus.
