Michael M. Rose

With 28 years of experience providing spiritual care and support to countless individuals and groups, Michael is passionate about helping folks connect with the God-who-loves in healthy, thoughtful and life-giving ways; helping them to experience this love in personally transforming ways.
 A thoughtful mystic, an accidental activist, and soul friend to many, Michael helps people connect to life in more profound ways,  by assisting them towards greater wholeness and deeper living; to discover purpose, create meaning, and recognize and respond to the sacred in all of life.  

Michael holds a Master Degree in Ministry from St. Stephen’s University and has authored “Becoming Love: Avoiding Common Forms of Christian Insanity" along with hundreds of faith-inspired articles, many of which have been published and referenced by various blogs, leadership, and spiritual care websites.

Michael has planted two church communities, The Rock (drop-in centre church) and Amadeo in Taber, Alberta.   Amadeo is a 12-year-old experiment in decentralized, organic, inclusive, web-like faith community.

His experience in social service ministry ranges from healthcare chaplaincy, grief and loss specialist, to developing a drop-in centre for youth and adults, working with people with addictions, outreach activities to the financially challenged, young people at risk and the over-churched (spiritually abused).
