Nadine Gascho

Nadine GaschoNadine is a certified spiritual director through Soul Stream, Canada and has an MA in Spiritual Formation from Carey Theological College.  She is also a member of the Evangelical Spiritual Directors Association.

Nadine is married, a grandmother of nine, and has spent much of her life in missions. In this season, she continues to offer spiritual direction and life-coaching through video conferencing to individuals around the world.

As a lifelong learner, Nadine enjoys connecting with others through ethnic foods, books, and cozy coffee shops. Since having recently moved to Ontario, she is exploring the beauty of the countryside, while capturing it on camera.

For Nadine, spiritual direction focuses on deepening one’s relationship with God, while receiving His tender love. As a spiritual companion and fellow-pilgrim, her desire is to provide a safe space for individuals to share their story, while exploring the journey of the heart. With the focus on listening for how God is present, she looks to the leading of the Holy Spirit (as the true Spiritual Director).  Sharing openly, honestly, and with transparency becomes an opportunity to grow in the knowledge both of God and of oneself.  Nadine will not attempt to fix, heal, or give advice. Instead, she will continue to point individuals to the One who can and who, ultimately, transforms hearts.

Whether meeting in-person or through video conferencing, the session is an unhurried, contemplative space.  It may include practices such as prayer and Biblical meditation, paying attention to emotions and physical responses, while pausing to listen in silence.  In response to God’s invitations, there may be a key scripture to take home and ponder or a spiritual discipline to practice between sessions.

Regular meeting times generally are for one hour, once a month.
