What is Desert Direction?
Desert Direction is a spiritual formation ministry in the Christian tradition, valuing the text of the Bible, centered on the Trinity, and emphasizing a contemplative approach. Spiritual formation is grounded in the ideas that we are always being formed by something and that God is always present in our lives. Therefore, learning to be attentive to His presence enables us to be formed by Him which is the greatest desires of our hearts.
Desert Direction is a ministry designed to come along side people to help awaken desire, adjust perspectives, and live attentively in deepening intimacy with God as Father, Son, & Spirit.
The desert is representative of letting go. It is in the desert that we learn to rely on Him alone. It is in the desert that we learn to become content in Him. It is in the desert that we come face to face with ourselves and Him. So, it is into the desert that He leads us so that He might speak to our hearts.
