Perkins Offers Certification in Spiritual Direction

Date Posted: 6/25/2019


SMU's Perkins School of Theology is offering a certification in spiritual direction. Their spiritual direction 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.
 
The ​cohort is scheduled to begin August 23. Applications for this cohort are due by August 1, and details of how to apply can be found at: https://www.smu.edu/Perkins/PublicPrograms/CSD/SpiritualDirection.
