Seeking the Spirit Within (StSW) Welcomes its new Director!

Written by: Pastor Brad E. Meyer

Seeking the Spirit Within, the Faith Formation Institute of the Nebraska Synod, welcomes its new director, David Pinkston.

David was raised in a farming town in Northern California. He moved to the Los Angeles area in ‘94 to attend LIFE Pacific University. He and his wife Brita married in ’96. They have three adult children. They’ve also pastored together at Pasadena Foursquare Church for over 25 years. His love for soul care led him to the ministry of Spiritual Direction with a specific niche in clergy care. He was trained and certified as a spiritual director through the School of Sustainable Faith. He then graduated from Portland Seminary at George Fox University in 2020 (MASF). He also went through training using the Enneagram through the Deep Coaching program. David is passionate about soul care, spiritual formation and leadership training, music and exploring their new home state of Nebraska!

StSW is diligently working on upcoming dates for its next cohort and other opportunities for spiritual growth. If you are attending the NE Synod Assembly, please stop by the StSW display table to meet David. Watch the NE Synod E-news for updates or go to for more information.
