My introduction to the contemplative life was through a ministry called JourneyMates, in 2009. The Lord has led me on a deeply transformational spiritual journey which resulted in a sense of calling to spiritual direction. I consider it a joy and a humbling gift to be able to walk with people as we listen, notice and discern where the Lord is at work. I was blessed to be able to go through the Selah spiritual direction training together with my wife, Terri. I continue to work with JourneyMates and to meet with people for spiritual direction.

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.
