Hello friends. For the past couple of years, I have continuously been asked for advice in the areas of theology, ministry, marriage, writing, building a social media platform, spiritual abuse, gender discrimination, and pretty much all things life.
I wish I could give everyone advice at no cost (as I did for the first 18 months of blogging), but too many folks are asking for my time and expertise now. I am humbled and honored that anyone would want my advice, and I want to meet the demand, so I have kept the cost as low as possible.
I am a trained minister who holds an AA in Practical Theology, a BS in Church Ministries, and an MA in Christian Doctrine and History. I have been blessed to work one on one with people of all ages for years. I am often told that I am “wise beyond my years” and truly love helping people and ministries move forward.
My approach is kind, genuine, non-judgmental, gentle and honest. You are safe with me.
Confidentiality is always a guarantee. Please note, however, if clients share with me that a child or an adult’s life is being threatened by another person or by themselves, I am obligated by law to report this (including child abuse, child neglect, life threatening abuse of an adult by another adult, or suicide risk).
Meetings will be 45 minutes long, which can be done in one of two ways (your preference):
- Online face to face (via Skype).
- Phone Conversation (USA numbers only).
Cost Per Individual Session: $35 for one 45-minute session (I cannot do refunds, but you can reschedule your meeting with me if you give me a 24 hour notice).
One Year Mentoring Program: If you are looking for an ongoing mentor, my mentoring program may be exactly what you have been searching for.
Many people take care of their bodies by exercising and eating healthy, but forget to take care of their minds, emotions, and inner-spirit. This is an opportunity to work towards wholeness in all areas of life with a woman minister who truly cares about you and wants nothing but the very best for your life.
As your mentor, I am committed to the following:
- Helping you grow in your spiritual life, which will certainly help you grow in all areas of life.
- Encouraging you through difficult life-circumstances and/or negative emotions that always show up in this thing called “life.”
- Helping you grow in your self-confidence and security in Christ.
- Helping you grow in your personal and professional relationships.
- Helping you grow in your scriptural understanding from a Christian egalitarian (equality of women and men in Christ) worldview.
- Helping you gain accountability from a non-judgmental sister in Christ.
- Helping you develop a trusted relationship with a female minister.
- Providing a listening ear and offering constructive advice when needed.
I meet with those I am mentoring once a month for a one hour session on Skype, phone, or in person (Washington, PA area only for in person meetings) for 12 consecutive months.
The cost for my mentoring program is $400 total. You can pay all up front, or we can discuss a payment plan contract to break it down and make it more affordable for you. Not only do you save $20 by purchasing 12 sessions at once, you are also given 180 extra minutes for free.
Together, you and I will come up with a consistent time to meet each month that is convenient for you (example:// every first Saturday of the month at 11 a.m.).
To schedule an appointment, receive instructions on moving forward with this service, or to ask any further questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

“I am thankful to have come across Jory’s path. I felt so comfortable sharing my story with her. She was kind, warm, and accepting during our time together. I felt no judgement. Rather, I felt supported and loved by a strong, Christian woman. Thank you for using the gifts God has given you to help counsel and love others (Jennifer: Working Married Woman & Mother in Her Early 40s).”
“I had a great experience going to Jory for support and advice. I was going through an extremely stressful time, questioning everything I believed and not knowing how to move forward in several areas of life. She was able to offer a fresh perspective on different aspects of my situation, and helped me realize what things I had the power to change and what things to simply let go. I would definitely recommend hiring Jory if you’re struggling and need encouragement. In addition to being very approachable and non-judgmental, she is also very affordable, which I appreciated (Anna: Married Woman in Her Late 20s).”
“I was fortunate to come across Jory’s ministry during a turbulent period in my life. Jory offers thought-provoking ideas and propelled me to look at the world through the lens of love. Besides that, her Christian advice service was the starting block in reclaiming myself as a woman and the start in my journey of leaving an abusive marriage (Shelly: Single Fashion Designer in Her Late 20s).”
“I have followed Pastor Jory’s ministry for the last three years and have gained so many amazing insights into God’s love and character through her work. Female leadership in the church is essential to the redeeming work of Christ, and Pastor Jory is a prime example of fearless devotion to God’s calling. Talking with her was enlightening and encouraging, and our conversation has given me newfound perspective and courage in how I can support my sisters in Christ as they lead and follow their own calling (Ethan: Single Screen Writer & Musician in his Late Twenties).”
“I decided to reach out to Jory during an excruciating state of inner (mental) turmoil that was actually making me physically sick. (That is: existence as a woman in today’s church). Her guidance and support was absolutely invaluable! She has discernment, grace, knowledge and wisdom to see, think, and understand outside of the box of “religion,” (that is: traditionally or socially-accepted “facts” about God) while remaining inside the realms of God’s truth. I encourage and urge anybody questioning if they should, to speak with her! Jory is following God’s calling on her life to help you in your walk with Jesus; why wouldn’t you utilize that (Keirsten: Single Nutrition Attendant at a Hospital in her Early Twenties)?”
“I have been working to build my social media following for a few years now, but it has been slow going. In the past year I have significantly increased my content output, but I was stuck on turning that into real followers and subscribers. Jory was able to share her experience with building a social media platform, and she had some great suggestions on how to tighten up my branding and really ‘wow’ people with a polished website. She also shared her “tricks of the trade” for maximizing followers on Twitter. After my session with Jory, I had some great ideas to develop and some practical to-do’s. Thanks Jory (Kristen: Wife, Mom, Christian Counselor, Author and Speaker in her Late Thirties)!”
“I had a great time chatting with Jory, we related in so many ways, and I felt like she truly cared about me and my journey to wellness and re-engagement with the church. During a very turbulent time in my life, I know she is available just to listen to me and pray for me. There is nothing as special as women connecting, she understood my passion for social justice and equality for women. She has great suggestions and is very non-judgmental. I can’t wait to speak to her again! (Amanda: Single Woman, Attorney, in her Mid-Twenties).”
“I’m in the process of starting a ministry in which I’m trying to get people in traditional Christian communities to listen to the stories of those the church has marginalized. Having read some of Pastor Jory’s writings on patriarchy and women in ministry, I thought her perspective could be extremely helpful. I was not disappointed! Not only did she answer all my questions in a thoughtful and engaging manner, but she also affirmed the importance and legitimacy of my idea–something I’ve been experiencing doubts about. After our conversation, she even sent a follow up email listing out some other things I hadn’t considered. All in all, meeting with Pastor Jory was well worth the expense and, if I run into any more issues, I’ll definitely be reaching out to her again. You probably should too! (Doug: Married Man, Data Analyst, in his Early Thirties).”
