Rev. Sarah Q. Hargrave
Staff Minister

t 415.383.1763

Rev. Sarah Q. Hargrave is a rare combination of ordained minister, entrepreneur, and former corporate executive. Her solid background includes 22 years' experience in the corporate world, plus extensive training in spirituality, psychology, mind-body health, and organizational transformation.

As Staff Minister at the Golden Gate Center for Spiritual Living, Rev. Sarah is a ministerial counselor, practitioner and teacher who assists individuals from a wide variety of spiritual paths to understand and use spiritual principles and tools to increase success, health, prosperity, and satisfaction in life.

In a unique "ministry without walls," she provides seminars, workshops, keynote speeches, consulting, and private tutoring to individuals throughout the United States. She also conducts weddings, commitment ceremonies, memorials, funerals, and other custom-designed ceremonies.

A pioneer in the field of spirituality in work and business, she conducts seminars on this topic and runs monthly breakfasts in Marin (second Thursday), San Francisco (second Wednesday), and Palo Alto (third Wednesday). She also co-facilitates a monthly brown-bag lunch meeting, "Spirit at Work: A Continuing Conversation," at the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce. The book, Megatrends 2010: The Rise of Conscious Capitalism, by Patricia Aburdene, highlights this meeting in coverage of "seven trends that will transform how you live, work, and invest."

In her dynamic course, "Managing Your Mind for Success: Achieving Results Through Productive Thinking ," Rev. Sarah teaches her unique problem-solving and stress-reduction process, applicable to both individual and business challenges. In her popular course, "Money, Beliefs and You: The Relationship Between Your Mind and Your Wallet," she assists individuals to move past financial blocks and understand the essential link between their beliefs and their bottom line. Her empowering "Success Groups" assist people to discover and implement their own visions of success and teach them how to start their own "Full-Spectrum Master Mind" groups to support each others' success.

Rev. Sarah is a faculty member of the Wellness and Massage Training Institute in Woodridge, IL, and on the advisory board of New Perspectives Chaplaincy Services.

As President of Hargrave Consulting, she assists individuals and organizations to clarify and achieve their goals through Productive Thinking. She also partners with executives and meeting planners to make their meetings and conferences more interactive, participatory and productive. Custom-designed retreats and seminars are a specialty.

Rev. Sarah developed and facilitates Invent A Session®, an innovative process that taps the ideas, passion and energy of individual attendees, and allows attendees to custom-design any meeting or conference to meet their specialized needs—on the spot! Meeting planners benefit by increasing attendee satisfaction and decreasing complaints, as well as gaining useful informaiton about attendees' needs and interests for use in planning future programs and publications.

Programs she has designed and facilitated include:

  • A special track for an international gathering of over 1,500 business school deans, executives, and heads of corporate education and training programs from 77 countries. Participants came together to capture and disseminate innovative and creative responses of management educators to key social, political and economic trends.
  • A two-day program for bank presidents, senior officers and directors.
  • An afternoon program for the Institute of Management Consultants.
  • A meeting for the Northern California Society of Association Executives.
  • A special retreat to promote cooperation and enhance teamwork for the planned giving staff of California Polytechnic Institute as they approached their Centennial Campaign.
  • A planning retreat for the Board of Directors of The Sea Ranch.

As a former corporate executive, Sarah's corporate career included many years with Sears, Roebuck & Co. As Corporate Director of Marketing/Public Affairs in the Chicago headquarters, she worked with Dean Witter, Coldwell Banker, AllState, Discover Card, the Sears Financial Network, and the Sears Merchandise Group.
