The purpose of the School of Spiritual Growth and Inner Healing is to establish Christ as the central relationship in our lives. We commit ourselves to Him in the deepest union, the closest companionship, and deepest service.

The program helps us to recognize and effectively deal with any blockages, wounded relationships or internal paralysis in our lives so that we may enter into the full gift of ourselves to God and to one another.

During this course we allow the Lord to form bonds of Christian community at the deepest levels of friendship, mutual support, healing and the strengthening of all areas of the Body of Christ.

A firm foundation will be substantiated to those who eventually desire to minister to others as a Spiritual Director.
