MIKE BUMGARNER

DIRECTIONS LIFE-COACH

Rev. Bumgarner has lived and ministered in the Norman community for 30 years.  He has served on a church staff for 19 years and is currently a chaplain at Norman Regional Hospital.  He is a Board Certified Chaplain through the Association of Professional Chaplains.  Mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness is the driving force of his work.  Mike became interested in coaching because it is a process encouraging a client, a couple, a group, to take action in their own lives.  Mike often refers to therapy as the "archeology" of healthy living, while coaching can been seen as the "architecture."  Mike is member of the International Coaching Federation.
