The Glory of God is people who are fully alive.

Meet Michael

Michael M RoseWith 30+ years of experience providing spiritual care and support to numerous individuals and groups, I am often described as a thoughtful mystic, an accidental activist, and intuitively empathetic. I am passionate about helping folks connect with the God-who-is-love in healthy, thoughtful, and life-giving ways, helping them to experience this love in personally transforming ways.

I hold a Master of Ministry - Spiritual Formation (2011) and a Master of Arts - Theology and Culture (2024). I authored the book "Becoming Love: Avoiding Common Forms of Christian Insanity." I contributed to the book Partnering with God: Exploring Collaboration in Open and Relational Theology (Sacresage Press), along with hundreds of faith-inspired articles, several of which have been published and referenced by various blogs, leadership and spiritual care websites.
