Care Crawford firstname.lastname@example.org
Care Crawford, Director of the CFDM Affiliate in Southern California, has served as Associate Pastor at Bel Air Presbyterian Church for 30 years. She is a graduate of Princeton Theological Seminary, where she holds both Master of Divinity and Master of Theology degrees. At Bel Air Pres, Care oversees the Women’s Ministries, all the church-wide special events including church retreats and camps, and shepherds inquirers and candidates under care as they move toward ordained ministry. In addition, Care is active in the wider ministries of her denomination and in networks of spiritual direction. Care is a frequent speaker at retreats and events and leads training & equipping seminars with churches, Presbyteries, and other organizations in areas of pastoral care, grief and loss, and spiritual formation. She is a trained Spiritual Director through CFDM and has a passion for people to grow deeper in their relationship with Jesus Christ. In her involvement through CFDM, and in her passion for Christian formation & spiritual direction, Care feels she has “come home” to that place in ministry where she is most effective and where she most belongs. She continues in spiritual direction and supervision for her own growth and accountability. Care has facilitated a new two-year training for spiritual directors ever year for over ten years. She is married to Stephen Madaris and they live on the Westside of Los Angeles
