The Institute's Programs

The Institute for Christian Spirituality seeks to "stir into flame" excellent ministry by making a series of vital connections that will call, train and sustain pastoral leaders. Drawing upon a network of seminary, parish and diocesan resources, the Institute will provide systematic formation to those already in ministry and those considering it, particularly young adults. This is accomplished through four distinct but mutually supportive "Making Connections" Initiatives.

  1. Center for Workplace Spirituality (CWS)
  2. Great Spiritual Books (GSB)
  3. Center for Prayerfully Speaking (CPS)
  4. Seminary's Theological Education for Parish Services (STEPS)
