terry tarletonTerry Tarleton

Terry Tarleton founded Carefree Vineyard Church in Arizona where he pastored for 16 years after serving eight years as Senior Associate Pastor at Vineyard Church North Phoenix.

Terry became passionate about spiritual direction and formation when burnout led to an “inward journey” with Jesus that transformed how he does life. He is especially excited about leading other pastors and leaders into an intimate, authentic relationship with Jesus. One of his favorite sayings is “doing flows out of being.” Often as pastors we lose sight of “being WITH Jesus,” because we get so busy “doing FOR Jesus.”

Terry holds an M.A. in Theology from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary and is trained in spiritual direction through Sustainable Faith School of Spiritual Direction.

twueste

Dr. Ted Wueste
Pastor, Spiritual Director, Director of the SFSAZ, author, speaker, retreat leader

I have a deep desire to see others spiritually formed through a deepening intimacy with the Trinity. For me, providing a safe place to prayerfully explore how God is leading and at work is the core of spiritual direction. Having served as a pastor for over 20 years, I have a heart for pastors and ministry leaders. Knowing the unique challenges they face, I value and cherish the opportunity to walk alongside ministry leaders in direction. I completed a Certificate in Spiritual Direction from Selah (Leadership Transformations) as well as Larry Crabb’s School of Spiritual Direction (New Way Ministries). My academic training includes a MDiv, STM, and DMin. My approach to SD is contemplative in style and Trinitarian in theology. Available to meet for spiritual direction (in person, by phone, or by video) and also able to give references for other great local directors.
