What is spiritual direction?

Spiritual direction offers a safe place to explore questions and concerns about your life with God.  A Christian spiritual director is a trained listener who will accompany you along your spiritual journey while helping you to notice God’s presence and activity along the way, as well as your personal reactions and responses.  Grounded in biblical truth, spiritual direction is a ministry that helps you grow in prayer and live your calling as a follower of Christ.  Every meeting is confidential, and the spiritual director will help guide the dialogue through attentive listening and thoughtful questions.

How do I know if I am in need of spiritual direction?

You may consider seeking out spiritual direction if you have questions or issues related to your spiritual life or if you are having difficulty sensing God’s presence in your life.  Other common issues addressed in spiritual direction include discerning vocational direction or navigating a major life change.

What is the difference between counseling and spiritual direction?

People unfamiliar with spiritual direction can sometimes confuse it with other Christian helping ministries.  Spiritual direction is similar to biblical and pastoral counseling in that it is biblically grounded and involves helping a person to live the Christian life more fully.  Professional mental health counseling is licensed through the state of Florida and is intended to help a person walk through personal and interpersonal issues.

How often do I meet for spiritual direction and how long does it last?

Sessions generally occur once or twice a month and last for one hour.

How much does spiritual direction cost?
