Group Spiritual Direction

Noticing and embracing the presence of God is the essence of spiritual direction. Experiencing this in a group is life giving and life transforming. Group spiritual direction is a soul friendship where our soul speaks, listens, and receives.

group spiritual direction

Noticing and embracing the presence of God is the essence of spiritual direction. Experiencing this in a group is life giving and life transforming. Group spiritual direction is a soul friendship where our soul speaks, listens, and receives.

The purpose of spiritual direction groups is formation. Spiritual formation is a “process of being conformed to the image of Christ to bring glory to God, give us abundant life, and for the sake of others.”

The purposeful goal of group spiritual direction is to help participants become more aware of God in their lives. This leads to an awakening of the soul.

Group spiritual direction helps individuals grow in their faith, love others more fully and participate in the mission of the church more effectively.

There is something powerful that happens when the Holy Spirit meets the Holy Spirit within you and me, in a group. God promises to be with us, in us and around us.

"Where two or three gather in my name, there I am." ~Matthew 18:20

How does this work?

Group members commit to meet for a specified time and frequency, usually 1.5 hours per session,  6-10 sessions depending upon group size.

Each participant is asked to read Seeking God Together, by Alice Fryling prior to first meeting.  This allows for all members to have the same foundational information and guidelines for group spiritual direction.

In the ministry of spiritual direction, there is no right answers,
only clearer visions of deeper questions.
