Spiritual Direction

Spiritual Direction has been called “holy listening”. In Spiritual Direction people pledge to journey together for a time in order to listen together for God’s voice in one of their lives. Through a prayerful listening and reflecting, in a confidential setting of prayer and encouragement, we seek to discern God’s leading.

Spiritual Direction assumes that God is at work in our lives: our relationships, our work, our leisure and quiet. God is present in our doubt and frustration and pain as well as in our certainty, our joy and our healing. Sometimes it is difficult to discern the Spirit’s presence or movement, or to follow the call. God is the real director of our lives, but an experienced companion can often help you hear or notice what is real, and respond.

Holding a masters degree in Spiritual Formation and Soul Care from Biola University, he’s trained in many facets of spiritual guidance, supervision of spiritual directors, and various retreat approaches including the Exercises of St. Ignatius.

Justin currently serves as Pastor of Worship at Grace Community Church in Seal Beach and as a Spiritual Director for Grafted Life and Biola University. Because of his background as a songwriter, recording artist, and worship leader, he has a unique heart for artists, musicians, and the creative community. His passion is to walk alongside others as they discover their unique calling and freedom in Christ. He and his wife of 25 years live in Southern California, and have four children, ages 15-22.

Spiritual Direction is available in-person (at his church office in Seal Beach) and online. Email for schedule and location inquiries, and for more details view a sample of the Spiritual Direction Covenant.

  5. Hey Justin,

    You don’t know me but we are neighbors, my wife knows your wife via Ms Godbers class, small world…

    I heard about you several years ago when you moved into the neighborhood, but that was that. Today is my first time to your Website and my first time listening to your work, good stuff especially “California”. What a blessing to know that you are serving the Lord doing what you love and have a passion for.

    I will make it a point to come by and introduce myself.

    Blessings, Brad

  6. Justin, thank you so much for coming all the way out to the desert in Silver Springs, Nevada. You and your band were such a big blessing to us and we so look forward to Gods next nudge to get you guys back here. We will be praying for you and your moving with the Lord more and more in His timing and His planning. Thank you and your precious wife for listening to Him and coming on out!

  14. Hi Justin,

    I writing you to request that you be a part of the ukulele related book I am attempting to put together. I have been collecting signed photos and short bios from ukulele soloists and musicians who regularly use the ukulele in their music. I would be delighted if I could include you in this endevour as I know you play the ukulele frequently in your music. I have collected photo/bios from about 35 folks from around the world who use the ukulele in a variety of different types of music. I’d be quite excited to add you to this collection. I am hoping to have this published as kind of a “who’s who” in ukulele world once it is complete.
    My address is as follows:

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    Best Wishes,
