I am so grateful for this beloved community. We are so blessed!"
Rev. Barbara Wuest
Rev. Barbara Wuest graduated from Western Oregon University in 1982 with a teaching degree in Mathematics & Physical Education, along with a minor in Psychology. After working as a teacher for 3 years, she changed focus to work in a computer company in Beaverton.
1989 was the “new beginning” for Barbara. Her father had just died, she was going through a divorce becoming a single parent of a 4-year old, and then an amazing God moment occurred! “It is amazing how there was a door open for me, that I never saw until I decided to begin walking again on this Spiritual path.” Walking through this door, Barbara began taking numerous classes at her Spiritual church, becoming more and more comfortable with New Thought and how perfectly it fit into her life.
After two years of classes, Barbara went to a new spiritual community to be in leadership on the board, and then created/gave Sunday sermons during the ministers’ vacations. Naturally this led Barbara into the desire to further her studies and in 2000/2001 she became a licensed and ordained minister.
Rev. Barb began volunteering at NTCSL in 2010 and was then hired as the assistant minister by the end of that year. In addition to her work at NTCSL, Rev. Barb is fortunate to have the opportunity to speak in a variety of churches in Oregon, mainly on the coast. “I love meeting people from many different denominations and sharing our stories of spiritual growth! I am truly blessed.”
In June 2016, Rev. Barb begin a new chapter in her life. She will be spreading hugs and joy everywhere she goes now!
“Joy is the way it is! I love to have fun, laugh and share the many things I have learned from my life experience AND I enjoy hearing about how others have come to their own spiritual awareness in their lives.
Come into my life and live JOY! Let’s laugh, cry and BE together. That’s what I truly want!”
