Poiema Soul Care helps you partner with God in creative goodness.


For we are his workmanship (poiema), created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
— Ephesians 2:10

Through spiritual direction, workshops, retreatsresources, and more, our goal is to help you see your life as an unfolding invitation to bring yourself—your talents, gifts, desires, and, yes, limitations—to bear on the world around you.

Your life is meant to be a masterpiece bringing beauty and goodness into the world. Like any skilled artist, God wants his craftmanship seen, enjoyed, delighted in. But unlike human workers, God isn't content simply to create—he creates creators.

Let's listen together for the creative goodness you offer the world.


Meet Ben Barczi

Welcome! As the founder of Poiema Soul Care, it's my privilege to journey alongside people discovering what God made them uniquely able to bring into the world.

I'm a pastor, spiritual director, writer and teacher, and avid coffee drinker. I've been guiding individuals in their spiritual formation for over a decade. I started Poiema Soul Care because I love creating spaces where we can listen for God together.

Statement of inclusivity

Our firm belief is that God treasures and is at work in every life, without exception. Therefore we enjoy working with people without discriminating for any reason—race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of our activities or operations.

While our own background is grounded in the Christian tradition, it is a privilege to walk alongside you no matter where you are in your spiritual journey.
