Spiritual Direction

A spiritual director is a guide who helps you discern the voice and action of God in your life. As a faith companion, they help you nurture a continuing hunger for intimacy with God. Spiritual Directors care deeply for people, their story, and their pursuit of God and Christlikeness. During spiritual direction sessions, you will together seek the Holy Spirit in matters such as:

  • Who am I uniquely in God? What is my calling?
  • Where is God when I am hurting or afraid? What is God doing in my life?
  • What is truly important to me and why?
  • Why do I still struggle with guilt and shame?
  • How can I cultivate a deeper relationship with Jesus and others?

Together we will seek God in your questions and provide tools for discerning and prayer. We would love to help you find a spiritual director from our trusted list of providers.

MA/TS Biblical & Theological Studies

Instructor: Emanuel Naydenov, PhD

Course Description:  This course focuses on the gospel, the economy of salvation, the incarnation of the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The course begins by treating the human condition as now fallen, and sin as the backdrop of the gospel. Attention then turns to the work of Christ, particularly the atonement and accomplishment of redemption as the content of the gospel. The course then considers the application and consummation of redemption by examining the work of the Holy Spirit, the nature, mission, and destiny of the church as the gathered people of God as the climax of the gospel. The course concludes with a consideration of how the gospel story ends, for believers and unbelievers in the glory of God’s being all in all in the new heaven and the new earth. Prerequisite: ST 5201
