If you are looking for someone who will wholeheartedly listen to you without judgment and then speak into your life with great wisdom you have come to the right place.  The spiritual directors at The Agape Center are well-trained and deeply committed to the process of listening people to life. They love God and through God's love the staff is able to be fully present to the needs and desires of those who come to talk with them. I'd encourage you set up an appointment today.


The End of a
Great Day!

"Truly, I want to thank you and your team for the gift of quiet hours on Thursday!  Ours is a very raucous world!  As I sat down by the mill some of my early thoughts went to those days of my childhood on a dairy farm in Washington State.  In the summer literal hours would go by without even the sound of a car on the road at the end of our driveway.  I could hear the cows lowing.  I could hear the flies and the bees buzzing.  I could smell the vegetables cooking that had been on the vines and in the ground only hours before.  It was a wonderful life!  I remembered all that, and I thank You for the gift of quiet again.

I sit daily before Him.  Many times I say to Him, "I don't want anything.  I'm not here to ask You anything.  I just want to be with You!"  He's the best gift of all!  And I appreciate you and your team emphasizing that for us on Thursday!"
