The Reverend Margaret Morgan Maat, Minister of Leadership Development

Margaret’s life mission is to ignite transformational change within individuals, organizations and communities. She has over 20 years of experience as a group facilitator, leadership coach and organizational development consultant. Margaret earned a master’s degree in American Studies from Baylor University with an emphasis in American church history. Her deep desire is to create within church communities a safe space where each person can experience the Spirit’s affirmation that “we are the beloved children of God and our lives matter,” and her ministry includes spiritual direction, life coaching and rituals of affirmation and healing. As Douglas Steere has said, “Perhaps the greatest gift we can give another is to listen their soul into existence.” Margaret loves to include stories in her preaching (and sometimes incorporates original music as well). She has authored a book, “Listening to the Rhythms of the Soul: Reflections for Spiritual Seekers.” You can download her music and sermons from her website.

Margaret is happily married to Wes Maat, they have one daughter, Lily. They have been members of Kingwood Christian Church since July 2011.
