The Five Loaves is a ministry providing methods, resources and event opportunities for spiritual growth and renewal. We enable people of faith to open themselves to the gift of grace and to make meaning of their experience of God in everyday life.


Looking back, we see how our ministry was being formed long before we understood.  We were following the breadcrumbs that led to The Five Loaves before it had a name, or mission, or design. Our life experiences, educational pursuits, career choices and spiritual discernments have prepared us for this ministry together.
