Ex Officio - Facilitator of Fraser Valley LDN

Fleetwood CRC- Surrey, BC

Wilma is the Facilitator for the Fraser Valley LDN as well as providing curriculum and support to other BC LDNs. A high school English & Bible teacher by training, she became convinced during her studies at Regent College several years ago that theological education as a transformative spiritual practice belongs to the whole people of God for the sake of the world. Wilma is a spiritual director who loves the history of Christian spirituality and in her leading draws on contemplative practices of prayer and scripture reading  that we might encounter the living God.
