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 2019 through June 2020, on the first Monday of each month, 1-5:15 pm. During the second year, monthly sessions are held October 2020 through June 2021 on the first Mondays, 2:45-5:15 pm.   Tuition is $695 per year.  A certificate is awarded at the completion of the program.
