Adele and Doug Calhoun will be presenting “Our Spiritual Transformation Journey: Exploring the Enneagram” at the Nurture 2020 conference at Lipscomb April 17-18, 2020. Their most recent book, “Spiritual Rhythms for the Enneagram,” aims to help individuals grow in greater awareness and lead them to spiritual and relational transformation.
Adele Calhoun has worked as a missionary, InterVarsity staff member, wife, mother, college professor, author, and much more. Her passion is for people to move beyond religion to a connection with Jesus that unites both their heads and their hearts in service and love of others. Adele is a graduate of the University of Colorado (B.S.) and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (M.A.). Adele is adjunct faculty for Selah (a spiritual direction training program). She co-authored “Opening Our Hearts and Home” with Karen Mains. Among the many other books she’s written are “The Spiritual Disciplines Handbook: Practices That Transform Us,” Revised Edition (2015); “True You: Overcoming Self-Doubt and Using Your Voice” (co-authored with Tracey D. Bianchi); and “Invitations From God: Accepting God’s Offer to Rest, Weep, Forgive, Wait, Remember and More,” all from IVP.

Adele is a certified Enneagram trainer and enjoys presenting workshops and seminars together with Doug. She is also adjunct faculty to PAX Center for Christian Spiritual Formation as well as Vision New England, and she has been to the Transforming Center.

Doug Calhoun brings over 45 years of ministry experience working with people and seeking their transformation in Christ. This internal focus combines with his missional desire that God’s glory fill the whole earth. Doug’s ministry began when he worked with university students on InterVarsity staff and then as an IFES staff member. In the church arena, he has served in a wide range of roles. As a pastor, he has traveled to five continents resourcing national churches, leading mission teams, serving on boards, and forming or strengthening mission partnerships. Doug loves to teach, mentor and guide others in their walk with God. He is a spiritual director and Enneagram teacher; he also presents workshops and seminars with his wife, Adele.

Doug is a graduate of Miami University (B.A.) and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (M.Div. and D.Min. in Christian Spirituality). He currently chairs the board of the Del Camino Connection; has been adjunct faculty to the Transforming Center and a founding member of the Transforming Churches Network; and is adjunct faculty for PAX Center for Christian Spiritual Formation and Vision New England.
