About John Chandler
Consortio Dei is the spiritual direction practice of John Chandler. I offer spiritual direction from a Christian perspective with an emphasis on working with spiritual leaders in churches and faith based orgs.
My work with spiritual leaders is rooted in my own ministry and non-profit experience. Over 25 years, I served in diverse roles and settings...
...from intern to lead pastor...
...from leading teams in a large church to working bi-vocationally in a new church plant...
...both as a board member and a full-time employee in a non-profit...
My heart is to walk alongside spiritual leaders in their journey, offering direction through my experience and understanding of the unique pressures they face.
The Consortio Dei podcast is a companion to my practice. With my heart to walk alongside other leaders as they partner with God, the podcast serves as a public conversation for shared learning and formation.
I live on the desert edge of the Phoenix area with my wife, our three teenage/young adult children, and our rambunctious puppy.
Please contact me for a free discovery session if you would like to explore working together.
