Graduate Certificate in Spiritual Direction

Spiritual Direction Program
The Graduate Certificate in Spiritual Direction program prepares men and women both to serve as spiritual directors and to bring spiritual formation and direction skills to other ministry contexts. Spiritual direction is an ancient Christian practice in which a more mature believer is trained to listen and guide others into deeper relationship with the true Spiritual Director, the Holy Spirit. This ministry is immersed in prayer, discernment, and Christ’s ongoing, grace-filled invitations to growth in faith, hope, and love… and is particularly focused on being formed in the image of Christ.

All of these courses transfer directly into our Masters in Spiritual Formation and Direction, if you desire more training.

This is a 2 year, 12 credit program. To see the curriculum, click here.
