You were not meant to be alone out there ...

...so let us walk with you for a while.

It all began with an encounter with the living God on the darkest day in my life. The rest is history, as they say, a life lived with one intention alone: to serve Jesus and His Church. The road was not always easy, and we have seen many struggle and fall along the wayside. Things could have ended badly for us as well, but the Grace of God kept us on this voyage for a long time - 45 years to be exact.

 

We are at a phase in our lives called convergence, a place where you understand that everything that has happened and everything you have ever learned flows together like the strands of a cord. The focus is sharp and the intention is clear: 

 

We want to give away what we have to help you become a better pastor, leader, missionary, and servant of God! The only way we know how to do that is by walking by your side for a season and help you get deeper in God. We cannot do this through Theological Education or Life Coaching (as valuable as these tools are), but through a trusting and loving relationship.

ABOUT US

We are Cathy and Norbert Bauer, and we have walked this road before. We have lived in 7 nations and travelled to over 60.

24 years of missionary service in Southeast Asia let us experience the ups and downs of cross-cultural service, and while we were there we raised our 7 children. Our voyage was by grace, for we really were ill prepared for living and working in some of the darkest and poorest places of the world.

 

We survived and gained a wealth of experience in a variety of scenarios such as Discipleship Training, Church Planting, Pastoring, Relief Work, Leadership Development, and Spiritual Formation.

 

We would love to come alongside you, your church, or your sending agency and join you on your journey through mentoring, training, encouraging, praying, but mostly through a loving and living relationship.

In this phase we will assess together how much input and help you need and desire.

* travel cost and accommodation

By now you may ask, why are there no prices?

The answer is quite simple: You cannot put a price on friendship! We have received freely, and we are willing to give away what we have and know.

On the other hand, this is our livelihood, and we are offering a service that others are charging significant amounts of money for.

We decided to treat this on a case by case basis, and are willing to serve you for what you or your church can afford. Talk to us, and will work out the details together.

 
This is a 4-week online course, and the first one on the journey to become a spiritual mentor/director.
