Meet with a Spiritual Director.

When you are busy with your work, family, or ministry it can be hard to fit in caring for your own soul. This can lead to burnout or becoming spiritually stagnant. 

Soul Shepherding’s Sr. Spiritual Directors are pastors, coaches, and soul friends that have been trained by Dr’s Bill & Kristi Gaultiere in their model of spiritual direction that’s Christ-centered and psychologically informed. You’ll receive the empathy, guidance, and prayer you need for healthy emotions, loving relationships, and effective leadership.
