“This program has been such a deepening, meaningful journey.  I feel equipped to engage in a spiritual direction practice and confident of the tools and insights I received through this training.  An unexpected blessing has been how enriching this training has been to my own personal spiritual growth – I feel a deeper understanding and intimacy with Jesus and have experienced his presence in my life in a new way.   The readings, discussions, interactions with peers and training residencies have all been so very enriching.  I am very grateful to have had this experience.”

Many ask the question – “What is Spiritual Direction?”   It is the ability to walk with others in their faith with trust.

To journey with another in noticing how God is present in their lives in a very sacred ministry.   Is God’s Holy Spirit calling you to travel in faith with another?

Come and Explore His call to you.
