Mimika Garesché, MA, STL

Ministry Consultant & Founder of the On Fire Discipleship Collaborative

Mimika’s track record of helping others achieve spiritual breakthroughs and the realization of new potential make her a sought-after spiritual guide and an invaluable member of the Preambula Group.

She founded the ‘On Fire’ Missionary Discipleship Collaborative precisely to meet a serious need in the Church. This six-month immersive group experience has passed the 20th group threshold. It has helped others awaken a deeper understanding of God and helped them to understand their own gifts so they can live as missionary disciples where God has put them.

In addition to extensive experience as a spiritual director and retreat leader for more than twenty years, she also founded A Path Toward Healing which helps individuals work through and heal wounds suffered as members of the Church.
