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 2020 through June 2021, on the first Monday of each month, 1-5:15 pm. Tuition is $700 per year.  HORIZONS will be offered via Zoom online until circumstances allow us to resume meeting at the Center.


This year's class is currently in session. Please watch for details regarding upcoming sessions.
