Profile: Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ! My name is Jeff Brady, and I'm honored to come alongside and be a spiritual companion as you explore your relationship with God, self, and others. I have been in part and full-time ministry for 15+ years and am an ordained minister in The Wesleyan Church. I studied psychology (B.S.) and Christian ministry (MDiv) at Indiana Wesleyan University and Wesley Seminary, respectively. In the last year, however, my wife and I have embarked on a new journey of ministry and understanding our relationship to the community we live in – we are now planting a network of house churches (Commoners House Church) in Marion, IN. The goal for this new direction is to cut through all the noise and the extras that have come to describe "churches" in our Western, capitalistic society. We want to pare Church down to its key essentials – Jesus Christ, love for God and neighbor, and helping all we come into contact with in ways they say they need. This mindset and method of ministry has grown out of the interior work God has been doing in me for the past decade or so. After committing a sin of adultery in 2010 and nearly losing my family and losing my ministerial position and place in seminary, I have been on a journey of restoration and rediscovery since then as well as the journey of rebuilding that my wife and I have embarked upon together. Over the course of that time I've shared in that journey of deconstruction and reconstruction that so many have experienced, and walking deeper into the love of God has been a deepening source of gracious rescue. As a spiritual director, my main aim is to help you get in touch, find immediate and regular familiarity, and more deeply communicate and grow in confidence with God. I began receiving spiritual direction from our local priest in 2012 and was invited to participate in a number of Ignatian and other soul companioning retreats before eventually being asked to lead. God's guidance began revealing a fresh direction in my own ministry life towards the pursuit of becoming a spiritual director. I began a formal certification process in a program at Portland Seminary and have now offered one-on-one, couples, and small group spiritual direction within and beyond a church ministry setting for over six years now. I look forward to the opportunity to companion you as you look for God and discern the direction that has already been whispered to you by the Infinite.
