Hosted by the CBOQ Formation Team 

The CBOQ Formation team’s vision to cultivate a culture of spiritual formation at the CBOQ.  The Formation team regularly gathers together for prayer, planning, mutual learning, and discernment.  The team has been instrumental in forming and shaping the recent Restoration Retreats for Pastors and Spouses.  Under the leadership of Paul Lam, CBOQ Church Life and Leadership Associate, team members include Jim Bagley, Lisa Brewitt, Diane McBeth, and Wayne Melnechuk. 


Ruth has been a student, practitioner, and thought leader in the area of Christian spirituality and formation for over 20 years. When she founded the Transforming Center with a few like-minded souls in December of 2002 it was based purely on a shared desire to experience deeper levels of transformation in Christ’s presence so they could discern and do the will of God. What has happened since then surprises her every day! A seasoned spiritual director, teacher, and retreat leader, Ruth was trained at the Shalem Institute for Spiritual Formation and the Loyola University Chicago Institute for Pastoral Studies and holds a D.Min. from Northern Seminary. She has served on the pastoral staff of several churches and is the author of numerous books and resources on the spiritual life.
