Krissi Vandagriff - EnneagramEnneagram 


Krissi Vandagriff, MSW from Baylor University, was first introduced to the Enneagram in 2012 under the direction of Suzanne Stabile from Life in the Trinity Ministries. Since that time, she has continued to deepen her personal understanding and application of the Enneagram. She has taught the Enneagram on several occasions in small group sessions, leading participants to more fully understand themselves, how they view the world, and how they respond to life in times of joy and success as well as in times of stress and sorrow.

The Enneagram is a tool that can lead people to more deeply understand themselves and how they relate to others, to God, and to the world around them . The Enneagram was recently featured in the annual Q Conference in Nashville. 

Through the exploration of nine personality types, the Enneagram can be used to encourage not only personal spiritual growth in your congregation but can also foster deeper, stronger inter-personal relationships within the community of faith. Whether you are seeking a deeper understanding of your own inner workings or a clearer understanding of the diverse ways in which others perceive the world, this seminar is for you.

"A Wonderful Community Builder"

 "The enneagram class in our church was a wonderful community-builder. We received fascinating and enlightening information about ourselves as individuals, and then learned how our basic "ways of seeing the world" interact dynamically with those around us.  We were drawn into deeply engaging dialogue with others--sharing our deepest selves in an atmosphere of grace and acceptance.   It was truly  a remarkable time of personal growth and learning to appreciate those whose views and motivations differed drastically from our own.  Our class forged deep relational connections that lasted long after the class ended.  I look forward to the next one. "  --  Robert A Kidd, Director of Spiritual Care and Values Integration, Houston Methodist Hospital System



"The Enneagram has been life-changing in the way I think about myself and interact with others. Once you know your personality type you will understand yourself infinitely better. Once you know your spouse's, friend's, or coworker's personality type, you will better understand why they think and act the way they do. I use the Enneagram in personal and professional relationships. It will open your eyes to the world and people in a new way."   --  Matt Boyle, Pastor (most recently in UBA, pastor of Ecclesia Clear Lake; now pastoring in Colorado)
