Marijke Strong is a pastor, writer, coach, workshop leader and spiritual director. One of her goals in life is to facilitate the kind of change that creates peace. She’s passionate about helping people work toward deeper personal awareness, corporate renewal, and community reconciliation.
Since 2016, Marijke has worked as the executive of the Regional Synod of Canada (RCA), supporting and overseeing the health of RCA churches across Canada. Her work involves listening, casting vision, building community, mediating differences, providing resources, coaching leaders, provoking awareness, encouraging emotional and spiritual health, and guiding groups through adaptive change.
When she’s not doing those things, Marijke spends her time outdoors, and experimental cooking, hosting potlucks, learning how to skateboard, making art, reading, and talking about ideas with friends.
