Rita Nussli

Associate Staff

Rita served as the Executive Director of New Horizons Ministries in Seattle WA for 22 years before joining the SoulFormation team. Under her leadership New Horizons became recognized as a model of what multicultural ministry to homeless and street involved youth can become. Over the years Rita’s calling was to lead the development of an effective organization that grew to 24 paid staff and 200 volunteers with a subsequent passion for the spiritual development of those leaders. God called her to a deep place of intimacy with Himself and taught her how to lead others to that same place.

Rita is an ordained pastor in the Free Methodist denomination. She has a Master of Social Work from the University of Washington as well as continuing theological education through Fuller Theological Seminary. Rita provides spiritual direction and mentoring to Christian leaders and teaches at seminars, retreats and conferences. Rita is married to Ron.  They have one son and 2 grandchildren.
