Dr. Sandra Broadus, Executive Director Emmaus Formation Centre
Sandra is committed to building up the laity of the Christian Church. After completing an undergraduate degree at U of T, she continued with an MDiv. at Tyndale Seminary, after which she began teaching Spiritual Formation and Spiritual Direction at Tyndale, lasting 7 years. These areas became central to Sandra’s call and ministry, which led to her Doctoral Degree: Leadership and Spiritual Formation, at George Fox Seminary (Oregon).
“Spiritual formation is that which connects our head knowledge of God to our heart knowledge of God. Help from another through the spiritual direction relationship can bring the head and heart closer than ever.”

He is currently the education director and core teacher for Emmaus Formation Centre and a consultant under Formation Insights. Paul is ordained in the Evangelical Covenant Church, trained as a spiritual director, and has a PhD in Educational Studies from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Deerfield, Illinois.
