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.
