Resident Community

David and Naomi Wenger serve as co-directors of The Hermitage. In this role, they offer hospitality, spiritual direction, worship leadership, group facilitation and the permission of silence to the many retreat guests they serve.

They both attended Sursum Corda, a spiritual directors’ formation program of the Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina. Naomi received an MAR from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and an MATS from Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary. David is a Licensed Massage Therapist. They have four adult children.

The Wengers came to The Hermitage in 2001 when the founding directors, Gene and Mary Herr, retired.
