What is Desert Direction?

Desert Direction is the spiritual formation ministry of Dr. Ted Wueste. In the Christian tradition, Desert Direction values the text of the Bible, is centered on the Trinity, and emphasizes a contemplative approach. Spiritual formation is grounded in the ideas that we are always being formed by something and that God is always present in our lives. Therefore, learning to be attentive to His presence enables us to participate in His formation of our lives which is the greatest desires of our hearts.

Desert Direction is a ministry designed to come along side people to help awaken desire, adjust perspectives, and live attentively in deepening intimacy with God as Father, Son, & Spirit.

The desert represents letting go. It is in the desert that we learn to rely on Him alone. It is in the desert that we learn to become content in Him. It is in the desert that we come face to face with ourselves and Him. So, it is into the desert that He leads us so that He might speak to our hearts.
