A Spiritual Journey with One Another


Stand at the crossroads and look;

Ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is,

and walk in it.

It is easier to find guides, someone to tell you what to do, than someone to be with you in a discerning, prayerful companionship as you work it out yourself. This is what spiritual direction is.

A chaplain's biggest gift is to be present and just listen.

May I Introduce Myself To You?

Rob Schettler, M.Div, BCC,
Certified Spiritual Director/Companion

Member of Evangelical Spiritual Directors Association
and adheres to the Code of Ethics with ESDA.

I have been with my bride for thirty-six years. We have a son, daughter, daughter-in-law, and two grandchildren. I have recently finished a four-month sabbatical, following twenty-four years as a chaplain and several years as a pastor. I was a hospice chaplain for sixteen years and served as chaplain/coordinator in a local hospital for eight years. I pastored several churches along my journey. God has been faithful to speak, lead, and encourage others and me through the many terrains of life.

Jesus has shepherded me across fields and to mountain tops, full of vistas and invitations for fifty-seven years. This adventurous journey continues. Sitting with others on their journey is one of life’s greatest joys. I enjoy hanging out with my family and friends, cycling, social gatherings, Henry my Bernedoodle, journaling, nature, and great books.
