Born and raised in California’s Central Valley, Jay is retired from an active career in the almond industry and is currently working to ensure occupational safety at a manufacturing company. He has passion to see people develop an experiential knowing of God’s love, and then to live that out incarnationally. He became a Spiritual Director in 2008 after feeling God’s call to companion others on their journey of spiritual formation. Jay offers direction, both individually and in groups and has led retreats. Together with his wife Carol, he has had the privilege of serving church leaders in Nairobi, Kenya and Malaysia. Jay enjoys the beauty and grandeur of God’s creation and so loves backpacking and camping.
