Rita Nussli, Director and Investor


Rita Nusslicurrently serves as an Associate Director with SoulFormation whose mission it is to nurture the spiritual health of leaders who are committed to a wide variety of Christian organizations where Jesus is lifted up.

She served as the Executive Director of New Horizons Ministries in Seattle, WA for over 20 years before joining the SoulFormation team. Under her leadership New Horizons became recognized as a model of what multicultural ministry to homeless and street involved youth can become. Over the years Rita’s calling led her beyond the development of an effective organization that grew to 20 paid staff and 200 volunteers and into a passion for the spiritual development of those leaders. God called her to a deep place of intimacy with himself and taught her how to lead other leaders to that same place.

Rita is an ordained pastor in the Free Methodist denomination. She has a Masters of Social Work from the University of Washington as well as continuing theological education through Fuller Theological Seminary. Rita’s ministry strengths are in one-to-one mentoring of leaders as well as speaking at seminars, retreats and conferences. Rita is married to Ron and they have one son and 2 grandchildren.
