As a part of the Senior Faculty for this training program, it is a joy to get to share this opportunity with others. Starting in the Boston area 10 years ago, Selah has graduated over 100 people trained in Spiritual Direction. The program’s distinctives are three fold: the training is Trinitarian, Biblical, and Contemplative. In addition, the training is done over the course of 5 residencies with monthly interaction with a supervisor. With cohorts now in Arizona as well as Europe, in addition to New England, there are lots of opportunities to jump in. Click here for more information, dates, cost, etc.

Life with God is a biblically-based, interactive spiritual formation curriculum designed to deepen a believer’s relationship with God. It is not your typical Bible study. Through teaching podcasts, heart-probing personal projects and weekly small group meetings, participants are immersed in the opportunity to receive God’s love, grow in their love for God and practice “loving” within the context of a committed community group.

The Pursuing Spiritual Transformation series of 6 small group studies is a basic series that is reflective of spiritual formation themes and exercises. Great for groups that may not be familiar with spiritual formation (a gentle introduction). Click here.
