Spiritual Directors

Spiritual direction is a time-honored practice of meeting with a person who can offer you guidance as you navigate your relationship with God. A spiritual director will listen as you share your story, ask questions to help you think more deeply, and suggest things to help you in your spiritual life.

This list of spiritual directors was generated by the Women's Ministry office in the Diocese of Jefferson City. You can click on the regions below to open the tab of spiritual directors in each area. In each tab we have included contact information and a short biography of each spiritual director for you so that you might learn a bit about these women and reach out to them for direction.

We will continue to update this list throughout the year, so feel free to share this resource with others or check back again in the future!

Spiritual Companions

Spiritual companionship is a ministry of accompaniment. A spiritual companion walks with you, sharing in your journey with Christ. They are not a therapist, but rather a listener who can be helpful as you open yourself to the Lord.

The women in this section attended a spiritual companionship training program here in the diocese. Click on your region to learn more about them, see their availability, and contact information.
