Kristen has a deep love for people and for the Lord. She spent several years in full-time ministry with Young Life, and many more as a volunteer. For quite some time she has felt an invitation from the Lord to slow down, recognizing that this invitation is continual and graciously extended by the Lord, even when ignored. She desires to help others learn to slow down and meet the Holy Spirit right where He is, where we sometimes have trouble seeing and hearing Him due to the constant chatter in and outside our busy minds.

Mitzi Mak

Selah-West Faculty

Mitzi started her professional life as a high school social studies teacher. She and her husband Jerry then served cross-culturally for ten+ years, living abroad first in India and then Kurdistan, N. Iraq. In addition to being a Spiritual Director, she now serves as a Formation and Care pastor in her local church in Houston, TX. She has graduated from LTI’s Selah Spiritual Direction training as well as LTI’s Emmaus Formational Leadership Program.

Mitzi enjoys engaging conversation, reading fiction, doing jigsaw/crossword puzzles, ocean gazing and exploring the world with Jerry through food and travel.

God has two main callings in Mitzi’s life: to care for those who care for others and to be a guide in helping others have a healthy relationship with the Trinity – recognizing God’s loving presence and activity in their lives and how to faithfully respond.

Selah was a transformative experience for me – allowing the contemplative within to emerge and to beautifully co-exist with my extraverted personality.
