Board of Directors

Brandywine Pastoral Institute, as a nonprofit organization, has always had a full board of about 12 to 15 professional people from a variety of backgrounds serving this counseling center. Many were particularly loyal and served for a number of terms. We relied on their ideas, wisdom, and expertise to help BPI remain an important asset to the community. We will always be grateful to the many people who served over these past 30 years. Recently we downsized the Board and the number of meetings held each year. Currently, our Board Chair, Steve Steinwedel, continues to work with us. He also continues to manage our educational arm, The Community for Integrative Learning, and recruits excellent speakers for workshops and programs usually held in Wilmington. We are deeply appreciative of his continued presence, guidance, and expertise.


Steve is a former Adjunct Professor in Community Counseling at Wilmington College and Counselor at Delaware Technical and Community College. He is currently Chief Operations Officer for Leader's Insight, LLC a leadership consulting firm started by his wife Janet in 2005. He also leads workshops and retreats integrating the practices of poetry, dreamwork and meditation to help facilitate greater self awareness and understanding.
