SPIRITUAL DIRECTION COURSE

Is God calling you to a deeper season?
Do you long to listen more and speak less?
To discern more than decide?


Spiritual Direction is a course that invites all these things through reading, prayer, and a monthly small group event that builds skills so you can be instrumental in hearing God's voice in your own life and in the life of others.

For more information, visit www.centerformation.org, under Ministry of Spiritual Direction, to learn more about it.
