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.
As a graduate of Biola University’s MA in Spiritual Formation and Soul Care, Justin has been trained in many facets of direction, supervision, and various retreat approaches including the Exercises of St. Ignatius.
Because of his background as a songwriter, recording artist, and worship leader, he has a unique heart for artists, musicians, and the creative community. Justin’s passion is to walk alongside others, especially pastors, missionaries, and other Christian leaders as they discover their unique calling and freedom in Christ.
