Nicole McClurg, Spiritual Formation Director

Life. Freedom. Wholeness. These were words that kept ringing in my soul because I was hungry to experience them in my life. I thought the way to experience them was to know and do all the “right” things. With this as my goal and intention, I fully expected to experience God’s love and acceptance in greater abundance; to sense aliveness in my relationship with God. Instead, what I felt was shame and condemnation since I never could get it “right” or know enough about God to truly experience Him personally. I also found that I was weary. This weariness of soul turned out to be a gift because it led me to ask important questions like this one, “Is there more to God and this life of faith than what I am currently experiencing?”
Diving into this question launched an ongoing journey, a process of developing a deeper relational life-with-God, self, and others than I ever thought was possible. I embarked on this deeper journey toward God through the process of spiritual formation and the ministry of spiritual direction. What I discovered along the way is that there is more to life-with-God, there is real transformation available, there is freedom, and wholeness to experience in all our relationships. I found healing in my own identity and in my image of who God is and how he calls me to be in relationship with Him. I also discovered my passion and call to help others begin or renew this spiritually transformative journey in their own life.
With a master’s degree in Spiritual Formation and Leadership and as a certified Spiritual Director with Enneagram training, I am prepared to walk with you as you take the next step on your journey toward transformation in Christ so that you can experience more life, freedom, and wholeness.
I am delighted to share my life with my husband of over 20 years and two teenage boys. I love connecting with God and others through His Word, creation, life stories, worship and a good cup a coffee.
The journey of transformation is life-long and we all need others to walk with us. If you, your small group, or church staff desire to experience more life, freedom, and wholeness, I invite you to check out the services I offer and give me a call. I’d love to walk with you awhile!
