Sue Burkett: about me

This page is a work in progress, as am I.

During Lent of 2012 I asked the Lord to reaffirm the call on my life.  This is what I heard:  the call on my life is to be a radical follower of Jesus, the venue and role I play is subject to change at any time.   My venue and role at the time was at a mega church in the mid west, where I was a pastor who oversaw the discipleship of newer followers of Jesus.  I was also part of a team of pastors who were charged with equipping the church in the ministry of the Holy Spirit.

In November 2014 I resigned from my role as a pastor.  The mega-church business model was killing my soul (and my writing!)  I’m currently looking for work to pay the bills while I pray about what’s next.  I’m exploring church planting as a possibility.  Meanwhile, I am available as a speaker through Deeper Roots Ministries, a Spiritual Direction and Spiritual Formation ministry founded by my husband Mike and I.  I teach on hearing God’s voice, praying for the sick, spiritual formation and its relationship to healing and other related topics.

I completed my training as a Spiritual Director through Christian Formation and Direction Ministries ( in October 2015.  I’m currently taking spiritual direction clients in the Central Ohio area.

In October 2015, Mike and I began meeting with a group of like-minded people to begin the process of planting a Blue Ocean Faith Community (  Blue Ocean Faith Columbus is now meeting as a church: details at Blue Ocean Faith Columbus !
