Apply for Certification in Spiritual Direction at Perkins

Date Posted: 3/13/2019

The Office of External Programs at Perkins School of Theology is currently accepting new applications for the Certification in Spiritual Direction program. 

The CSD program seeks to equip individuals who feel called to serve as spiritual directors for others. Students complete a series of 8 courses over three years and attend regular meetings with their own spiritual directors. Throughout the program, students are equipped to listen, pray, and ask questions in a fashion that encourages directees to look for the movement of the Holy Spirit in their lives. They learn to ask the kind of questions that nurture the growth of wisdom, using tools and values that have been sharpened over the last two millennia.

Applications for the next cohort are due by April 1. The online application form and further details are available at
