ABOUT WIL HERNANDEZ:
Wil Hernandez was born and raised in the Philippines. A graduate of
Visual Communications (major in Advertising Design) at the University of
the Philippines, Wil came on full-time staff with an international,
interdenominational Christian organization right after college and
served under it for 18 years.
In 1995, he went to the U.S. with his wife Juliet and his two sons,
Jonathan and David, to pursue his Master of Theology (Th.M.) degree
majoring in Counseling Ministry in a seminary in Texas. Upon graduation
in 1999, the family moved to Southern California where Wil started his
doctorate program at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena. With
additional studies in Christian Spirituality at the University of Notre
Dame and Loyola Marymount University, he finished his Ph.D. degree in
Practical Theology with a special concentration in
spirituality/spiritual formation. Upon graduation, Wil joined The
Leadership Institute, a parachurch organization specializing in the
integration of spiritual formation with leadership development.
Wil holds a private practice in a professional office in Pasadena doing
counseling, life coaching, and spiritual direction (including running a
9-month Ignatian Spiritual Exercises for small groups following the 19th
annotation of St. Ignatius of Loyola). On the side, Wil periodically
teaches various courses focusing on the spirituality of Henri Nouwen
(both “live” and via online) at various Protestant and Catholic
institutions such as Fuller Theological Seminary, Azusa Pacific
University (CA), Loyola Marymount University (CA), Spring Arbor
University (MI), Oblate School of Theology (TX), Tyndale College and
Seminary (Canada) and Hope International University (CA).
In conjunction with The Nouwen Legacy, which he started under the
umbrella of The Leadership Institute, Wil regularly conducts retreats
and workshops for various churches and ecumenical groups all year round
across the U.S. and abroad focusing mostly, but not exclusively, on the
spirituality of Henri Nouwen. He has done several workshops on Nouwen at
the Los Angeles Religious Education Congress. He is a frequent workshop
presenter during the annual SOULFeast conference hosted by the Upper
Room Ministries and serves on the faculty of its Academy for Spiritual
Formation. Wil also lectures for the Institute for Adult Spiritual
Renewal (formerly Retreats International) at Loyola University in
Chicago. Every now and then, he gets invited to teach spiritual
direction courses at both Pecos Benedictine Monastery’s School of
Spiritual Direction (NM) and at the Center for Spiritual Development’s
Art of Spiritual Direction and The Source programs (Orange, CA). As an
active member of Spiritual Directors International (SDI), he serves on
the Editorial Panel of Presence Journal and regularly conducts Nouwen
workshops at SDI conferences.
At present, Wil occupies the E.A. and Bessie Andrews Chair in Spirtiual
Formation at Spring Arbor University in Michigan where he also directs
its Master of Arts in Spiritual Formation (MFSL) online program. He
remains as an affiliate staff of The Leadership Institute based in
For the past three years now, Wil has been a part of the San Fernando
Valley Oblates Group connected with Saint Andrew’s Benedictine Abbey in
Valyermo, California—the same monastery where he wrote the final
touches of his PhD dissertation work on Henri Nouwen in 2004. Together
with his wife Juliet, they worship at St. James Episcopal Church in
South Pasadena where he is actively involved in its parish ministries.
Wil is the author of two books on Nouwen (Henri Nouwen: A Spirituality
of Imperfection and Henri Nouwen and Soul Care: A Ministry of
Integration) and a third forthcoming one on which this guided retreat
will be based: Henri Nouwen and Spiritual Polarities: A Life of Tension
(all published by Paulist Press). His personal website is:
