United States

I was raised in a Christian church with a deep understanding of scripture and a strong ethic for serving in ministry. But throughout adulthood, I’ve had a growing awareness of the work of the Holy Spirit and a deep need for the soul nourishment that comes only from God. This thirst led me to spiritual direction—a place of gracious, spacious community.

I am also an editor and writer—but I’m a reader first. I love cooking and swimming. I live in Cincinnati, Ohio, with my husband, who is a minister to incarcerated people, and my son, who is adorable.

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.
