Whether through spiritual direction or facilitating contemplative forms of prayer for individuals and groups, Lance thrives in helping people become more aware of God, themselves, and the divine-human relationship. Lance spent nearly twenty years in full-time pastoral ministry before launching his own practice in spiritual direction. Besides offering one-with-one and group training through his own practice, he currently serves as a course facilitator with the Institute for Christian Spirituality in Nashville, TN, and he is the Director for Spiritual Integration with the Samaritan Counseling Center of East Texas.
Lance is completing his Doctor of Ministry degree in Missional and Spiritual Formation through Lipscomb University. His project thesis involved the creation, implementation and evaluation of an eight-week program entitled, “Transforming Community: Formation and Training in Group Spiritual Direction.”
Lance has been married to his wonderful wife Daphne since 1999, and they have three beautiful children. He enjoys reading, exercise, vacations on the beach, spending time with family, and living contemplatively.
