Spiritual Direction Training Program (SDTP)                                                 Back



Spiritual Direction is a classical practice throughout church history. When one looks at the history of spirituality, one finds spiritual direction being practiced by Christians throughout the ages - from the early church, the desert fathers and mothers, Christians in the Middle Ages, up to the present time. It is a very valuable practice and ministry that has somehow been forgotten by many church traditions. Spiritual direction can play a very significant role in our Christian journey.
