Dare to draw near enough to feel the very pulse of God
Pulsus Dei exists to be a safe space to explore the depth of one's soul in order to grow in intimacy with Jesus. We are especially passionate about journeying with pastors and leaders who are struggling in ministry.
Terry Tarleton pastored for 25 years in the Vineyard. He understands the demands of pastoring, and he also learned to pastor "freely and lightly" by journeying deeper with Jesus. An experienced spiritual director, he has a passion for accompanying pastors and leaders on their own journey with Jesus.
Terry has an MA in Theology from Liberty Theological Seminary.
Terry and Janice have been married since 1981 and have four grown children and two grandchildren.
Janice Tarleton is passionate about transformation; helping followers of Jesus grow in self-awareness, authenticity, and intimate relationship with God.
She has served as a pastor’s wife in large and small contexts and church planting for 25 years. A graduate of – and teacher for – Sustainable Faith’s School of Spiritual Direction and Supervision courses, Janice is also trained in various forms of inner healing prayer and has facilitated hundreds of sessions since 2011. She delights in accompanying individuals and small groups through the 18th and 19th annotations of The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius.
Married to her high school sweetheart since 1981, they have four grown children and two grandchildren.
Going deeper with God
Spiritual Direction is simply one person accompanying another on his or her spiritual journey. We have trained spiritual directors who are passionate about assisting others as they journey with Jesus. Sessions may be in person or virtual.
We offer personalized retreats from one to five days based on specific need. Our home is on 4.5 beautiful and peaceful acres in rural Iowa, only 30 minutes from the Des Moines airport. Come and get away with Jesus.
INNER HEALING PRAYER
We practice Immanuel Healing Prayer as a way for individuals to receive healing from past wounds. This style of prayer is Christ-centered, allowing Jesus to bring his perspective to painful memories. Personal three-day intensive retreats are available.
