The Spiritual Direction Supervision (SDS) certification program is designed to equip seasoned spiritual directors to serve as professional spiritual direction supervisors. Our program offers training from experienced Christ-centered spiritual direction supervisors.
Our spiritual formation curriculum is biblically grounded and Christ-centered and our understanding of spiritual formation involves the intersection of Scripture, theology, psychology, and social-cultural factors. The focus of our curriculum is to build on a student’s awareness, empathy, and compassion skills that are essential for effective spiritual direction supervision.
