Get to know those who are a part of our network in Arizona! We have a variety of people who are involved in ministries including spiritual direction, pastoral ministry, counseling. leadership development, retreat ministry, and more.

If you are looking for a Spiritual Director, we’d also suggest perusing the Evangelical Spiritual Directors Association website.
