Event Details

In this first Colloquium we will unpack various definitions of Spiritual Formation, identifying the key elements they hold in common with one another. We will explore ways in which the term Spiritual Formation is being used today, and how it's distinct from its complementary terms such as discipleship, education, direction, and counseling. We will also consider ways in which Spiritual Formation ministries are blossoming and flourishing in local church and other ministry settings. Each participant will be given opportunity to reflect on specific applications for their unique settings.

Lunch will be provided. MUST REGISTER IN ADVANCE (no walk-ins, sorry).  Maximum registration for each Colloquium is limited to 30 participants. Please email with any special dietary requests.
