Horizons Spiritual Direction Training Program
Horizons is our two-year training program in spiritual direction. For nearly thirty years, the Spiritual Renewal Center has been training men and women for the vitally important ministry of spiritual direction. Have you sensed that God might be calling you to this work? Consider applying for our two-year HORIZONS Foundational Program for the Training of Spiritual Directors. Horizons is a practicum-based program for people wanting to develop their gifts for this work. Monthly sessions focus on the principles and practices of spiritual direction, alongside close supervision of direction practice.
Staff includes Jim Krisher, Sr. Marise May, Kathy Papa, Lana Riley, and Rev. John Rose. Applicants must have substantial knowledge in theology, scripture, and spirituality, and a minimum of one year’s experience receiving spiritual direction.
The first year of HORIZONS meets at the Center October 2021 through June 2022, on the first Monday of each month, 1-5:15 pm. During the second year (also October through June on first Mondays), monthly sessions are 2:45-5:15 pm. Tuition is $700 per year. Next fall’s cohort is forming; contact Center Director Jim Krisher by email at for more details or an application. Distance learning may be possible depending on interest.
