Spiritual Formation For Kingdom Action

Spiritual Director’s Profile

Yonce Shelton

Bethesda, MD

Offering both spiritual direction and counseling, Yonce helps individuals and communities with calling, discernment, and transition. All the ways in which he does so flow from a posture of spiritual direction. Yonce’s calling to help with the inward journey came after a decade focusing on the outward journey via politics, faith-based advocacy, and bridge-building with diverse political and theological stakeholders. He now helps individuals discerning calling in ministry, nonprofit work and more, and has a heart for helping leaders find meaning in professional pursuits – and all of life. In addition, he works with intentional communities to structure life together around values, commitments, and rhythms. Yonce has also provided leadership in two churches, serving one as pastor during a time of transition. He is a Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor and a spiritual director having received his training Monastery of the Risen Christ, San Luis Obispo, CA. He holds masters degrees in Theological Studies (social ethics focus) and Pastoral Counseling. Yonce welcomes a range of approaches, questions, and insights that contribute to understanding, doing, and being prayer. He believes the spiritual life is about honoring experiences, gifts, and desires – and being available to new ones.
