Victoria Loorz, MDiv CSD
Victoria Loorz, MDiv, first interacted with the re-integration of spirit and nature shortly after graduation from Fuller Seminary, when she wrote a toolkit for World Vision sent to 50,000 evangelical churches entitled “Let the Earth Be Glad.”
A Spiritual Director, certified by Stillpoint in Pasadena CA, and pastor in a series of independent churches, Victoria has been involved in leading spiritual formation retreats, interactive labyrinths, contemplative workshops and courses for over 25 years. Her focus has been searching for ways to invite people deeper into their true identities and there discover a more intimate experience of God.
That path became clear when she began wilderness soulwork through Animas Valley Institute, which awakened the audacious call to ReWild the church. She launched Ojai Church of the Wild in 2015 to introduce her congregants to spiritual practices that re-connect them to the sacred embedded in all things. Shortly afterwards, co-launched and convenes the Wild Church Network.
Victoria raised two brilliant, compassionate young adults who are determined to change the world.
