The Enneagram and The Spiritual Life

A night to discover more about how you were uniquely designed and how to use that knowledge as a tool for spiritual growth.

In this 2 hour workshop we will take a look at the basics of the enneagram (a personality typing system) to gain a robust and honest look at the way God has uniquely designed you. We will help set you on a path to discover your enneagram type and how that small piece of information will help give you both understanding of and compassion for yourself and others. Finally, we will look at the biblical foundations of the Enneagram and how it can be used as a tool for spiritual growth.

Garret Shelsta


Garret has been involved in Jesus centered faith communities for the last 17 years. His areas of interest are vast, and his time management skills are negligible. This mix of skills has had the effect of giving him a “C+” understanding in fields ranging from theology, philosophy, pop-culture, music, sociology, economics, human development, technology and politics. All this means that Garret has strong opinions about things he has a surface level understanding about thus making exciting dinner conversation. He has been leveraging the wisdom of the enneagram in leadership development and discipleship for the last 3 years and has seen God’s spirit not only use it transform him and his marriage but countless numbers of young adults in Whatcom County. He has B.A. degree in Biblical Studies from Azusa Pacific University and currently spends a majority of his professional time as the Pastor of Ekklesia, the college and young adults ministry of Christ the King Church in Bellingham, WA.

Garret is married to Aubrey and together they have 4 amazing littles.

Get ready to dig in to the deep and real – we talk body image, perfectionism, family dysfunction, and so much more. At our classes, workshops and retreats, we like to skip the surface-level parts and get right to the heart of what matters to us as women, whether we’re discovering our purpose, facing past wounds, or developing our leadership skills.

You’re going to want to come to a class, workshop, or retreat with a teachable spirit, a hunger to learn, your favorite notebook, and a pen with looots of ink so you can jot down all the revelations, action items, and realizations you have as you listen to our expert teachers and chat with other like-minded women.

We will be taking necessary health and safety precautions for this in-person gathering. Collide encourages guests to wear masks when not seated and eating or drinking. We will thoroughly sanitize the venue and set up the space with socially distanced seating. Thank you for respecting the various comfort levels of other guests as guidelines and recommendations continue to evolve.
