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.
