Introducing the Soul Shepherding Ministry
Do you desire to go deeper in your spiritual walk with God? Are you seeking spiritual direction for your Christian life? Or maybe you just feel like you’re spiritually stuck and have reached a ceiling in your spiritual growth, but you desire more. Perhaps Soul Shepherding is for you!
The Soul Shepherding Ministry of Woodbridge Church is about Spiritual formation. It’s embarking on a journey of transformation of the innermost being of the person. Every person is unique, with his or her own personality, needs, gifts and abilities, vocation and calling, which all points to a unique purpose in life. But sometimes, that purpose is not so clear depending upon which stage of life you are in. That is why spiritual direction is so crucial in navigating this faith journey. It may provide you with a clearer understanding of the stages of faith, barriers to growth, and how to progress in following Jesus as it currently applies to your situation, in ways that are relevant to you.
Soul Shepherding seeks to provide a personalized framework for spiritual direction, providing seekers of Christ with a heading towards a process of spiritual growth and maturity.
Meet our Spiritual Shepherd
Greetings! My name is Marina Ball and I have been a member of Woodbridge Community Church for over 40 years. I was a new Christian when I became a member and God allowed me to grow quickly and develop a passion for spiritual formation which is ways to know God better.
I retired from my career three years ago. As I was pondering what my new purpose would be, our pastoral staff suggested I get training in spiritual direction so that I could be a resource for our church family. I recently completed the two-year training program and am now a certified spiritual director, or as we call it here, a “Spiritual Shepherd.” As a spiritual shepherd, I will meet with people who want to go deeper in their relationship with God, together seeking the guidance of the Holy Spirit. I expect we will experience more personal wholeness as we integrate our spirituality into our everyday lives.
