Spiritual Direction Training
Listening People to Life: Training in Spiritual Direction
The non-degree Training in Spiritual Direction program fills a unique need in our region by providing specialized training to individuals who “listen people to life” on their spiritual journeys. Upon satisfactory completion of the Training in Spiritual Direction program, students will receive an official certificate of completion. The program is divided into six course units that are spread out over the course of two years. Class sessions are held on Monday evenings between September and May. Throughout the learning process, students are surrounded by a qualified and experienced resource team. The certificate of completion program is ideal for: lay ministers, mentors, chaplains, spiritual caregivers (paid or volunteer), campus ministers, pastors, human resource directors, teachers, counselors, student development personnel, camp directors and coordinators, and retreat center directors. Students considering seminary in the future should speak with an admissions counselor before enrolling.
