Leading and teaching Women’s retreats, workshops, Bible Studies, leadership training and mentoring leaders. I love doing innovate things as a teacher, inspiring women to love and be transformed by the Word of God. I have a gift of mercy and often see healing of some sort take place at retreats. I currently have four retreats I am doing: “Women on the Journey”, “Abba’s Arms”, “Moving Mountains” and “Enjoying Life”. I have developed a 6-week leadership development class called “The Shepherd’s Place” helping women clarify their calling and fall more deeply in love with their Shepherd.
Developing, growing and restoring people and ministries for the glory of God. I am passionate about helping others identify and develop their spiritual gifts as well as clarifying their life purposes. I am a visionary leader who loves coming alongside others to develop God-initiated ministries. Growing people in God’s Word through the Spiritual Disciplines is the passion of my life. I teach them to hear from Him and endeavor to inspire them to love and know Him. I know my own needs for His restoration and am passionate to see Him restore others. I deeply resonate with mercy ministries and a call to the nations.
Ministry has been my vocation since 1987. Thirteen of those years I have served as a Women’s Pastor and most recently as Community Pastor (overseeing adult ministry). I am ordained as a pastor currently working at Summit View Church in Vancouver, WA.
Same as above. In my earlier life (before ministry) I was a Mom and part-time legal secretary.
Graduate Studies Diploma, Pastoral Care to Women, Western Seminary, 2001. I am currently in the certification program at Western in Life Coaching.
I have led or spoken at many Women’s retreats including Christian Renewal Center’s Women’s Yearly Retreat (Julie Hansen, leader); Gladstone Christian Church; Harvest Community Church, Hillsboro (Glynna Marreel, leader); Church on the Mountain, Welches, OR; Summit View Church. Workshops or classes: Western Seminary, Pastoral Understanding of Women class, segment on “Shepherding Women”; and Network for Women in Leadership workshops; Workshop for Women at Hinson Memorial in Portland. I frequently teach (and developed) workshops on Identifying and Developing Your Spiritual Gifts. At Summit View Church I have been the coordinator of the Spiritual Growth and training classes for our church and tag-team teach these classes with other pastors. As one of the pastors on staff, I speak twice a year on a Sunday morning at Summit View Church. I have led and taught Bible Studies for most of the last 20 years. As a pastor, I have led and trained leaders in ministry for 13 years and frequently network with other leaders.
