Explore history, connections with the larger Biblical story, additional themes and ways to apply the Bible to our daily lives. There’s always time for conversation around tables. You’ll gain a deeper knowledge of scripture, learn how to read it profitably on your own and build deeper relationships with others. How awesome is that? There’s something for everyone, and everyone is welcome – from Bible scholars to Bible newbies. You just need to bring a Bible and an open mind.

“We are all spiritually hungry. We all need someone to walk with us. To journey with us. To give us courage, to give us incentive, to give us inspiration. And that’s what a spiritual director is. That’s what we do.” Re. Dr. Carol Vaccariello
A Spiritual Director is a companion who walks with you on your spiritual journey; serves as a witness to the voice and discernment of God’s guidance in your life; offers compassionate listening as you explore questions, concerns, and feelings; is helpful during life transitions, spiritual crisis, or if you are desiring to grow deeper in your faith.
Spiritual direction is often offered as a one-to-one or group experience in private sessions with spiritual mentors who have most likely completed extensive formation for the ministry and service of spiritual direction.
