Becoming Me

Passionate yet Goofy, the schizophrenic sides of me.

Who am I?: Literally in name, “Bearer of Christ.”  In actuality, Becoming a Shadow of that. Abba’s Beloved.  Growing Comfortable in My Own Skin.

Oh, and I like: Bodyboarding, Photography, Writing/Blogging, Recovering The Creative Process In Our Lives, Red Hair, the Oakland A’s, Church Planting, Spiritual Formation informing a Missional Context, Backpacking, Northern California, Upper Jetties Newport, Sarah Magdalene Van Der Merwe.

Currently, I ‘do:’ NieuCommunities South Africa Field Staff: Teaching Spiritual Formation in local church and NGO contexts throughout Pretoria and Soshanguve, South Africa, Facilitating group and individual environments for people to process God and their own hearts through spiritual direction, clearness committees, and prayer/discipline experiences, Creating sustainable spiritual rhythms and disciplines for our community to live out of in openness to God, as well as crafting a holistic experience around the Life Compass process, in which you continue walking in confidence into the life God has for you.  Oh, and a bunch of other random stuff that makes me a human like you all.  In my former life, I was a Chaplain and Teacher at Eastside Christian High School and Junior High in Fullerton, California (2004-2008), as well as a graduate of the Institute for Spiritual Formation with a Masters in Spiritual Formation and Soul Care in December 2008.
