Sitting with others as they sit with the Lord is such a gift. To be alongside people as they experience God’s presence with them and respond to his invitations to them is a sacred calling. Learning how loved we are by our Triune God is a lifelong journey for all of us. I’m passionate about helping others' capacity to receive God’s love and be transformed by it grow.

I’ve worked with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA since 1987 and love this generation of students. I love exploring national parks with my husband, aunt-ing, reading, nature, laughter, time with family and friends.

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.
