Spiritual Direction Training


There is a widespread interest in, as well as a great need for an evangelically sensitive model of spiritual direction. For over 15 years, we have been working in spiritual direction and slowly shaping such a model of spiritual direction. And building models and systems to train spiritual directors through distance learning.

The LCI program consists of three essential modules for training evangelicals for the ministry of spiritual direction. This program begins with a "residential" time of one week to launch the learning process with the first Spiritual Direction training module. You then move into a one year program that takes you through two more modules. These two modules include:

  • Monthly webinars on Spiritual Direction (including reading assignments and cohort dialogue)
  • Monthly spiritual formation work as you personally engage with the great biblical themes that shape our life with Christ.
  • Spiritual direction from an LCI trained director
  • Supervision of the ministry you do as a spiritual director
  • And mentoring for your learning journey.

This is a challenging and rewarding learning process that will empower you for fruitful ministry in spiritual direction.

A fourth module (optional) walks you through the journey of designing transformative learning environments for spiritual formation in your church, mission or other organization. We train you to be the "architect" of a new kind of learning community.

LCI gives a Certificate in Spiritual Direction upon successful completion of the first three modules.
