While spiritual development is a concern for all Christians, spiritual maturity and a well-grounded spirituality is especially important for those who have been called to Christian leadership. Author Michael Gemignani provides specific guidance for pastors to develop their spirituality through classic spiritual disciplines such as contemplative prayer, meditation, Bible study, and more. Spiritual Formation for Pastors explores general spirituality, clergy spirituality, and the spirituality of the individual clergyman or woman. Gemignani will take pastors on a journey to develop their own spirituality based on their calling, interests, and ministry gifts before guiding them to a higher level of spiritual maturity that is unique to those who are called to lead.
Michael Gemignani, MS, PhD, JD, is the associate rector at St. Michael's Episcopal Church in Lamarque, Texas, and has been an ordained Episcopal priest for more than 30 years. He is also a long-time spiritual director with a special interest in, and experience with, healing ministry.
