Become a Spiritual Director

Above all, a spiritual director listens and helps an individual become aware of the spiritual relationship he or she has or wants with God. A director may help with discernment, spiritual practices, and methods of prayer. Prayer is part of the session and a director continues to hold his or her directee in prayer between sessions.

Expectations for Spiritual Directors:

  • Commit to meeting every one to two months with directees over the course of one year​.
  • Assist the directee to share personal and relational struggles in context of faith and discernment.
  • Recommend prayer, scripture, spiritual practices, or supplemental reading.
  • Thoughtful preparation for each session in accordance with the needs and characteristics of the directees.
