Center for Christian Spirituality

Center for Christian Spirituality

Spiritus Sancti


DO YOU FEEL CALLED BY GOD TO OFFER 
SPIRITUAL GUIDANCE TO OTHERS?

DO YOU DESIRE TO ENHANCE YOUR OWN
SPIRITUALITY & PRACTICE OF PRAYER? 

The Center for Christian Spirituality (CCS) may be a place for you to explore the ways God is acting in your life.

Established in 1976, the CCS educates and forms leaders to offer ministries of spiritual guidance. Drawing upon the rich resources of an accredited seminary, the CCS offers degrees in both spiritual direction and the spiritual guidance of children. The CCS also invites you simply to take a course or come for special programs and events.

WHAT IS SPIRITUAL DIRECTION?

The CCS understands spiritual direction as any ministry that nurtures the spiritual lives of the people of God. Such ministries include spiritual direction, group spiritual guidance, the teaching of prayer practices, liturgy design, preaching, retreat and quiet day leadership, and prophetic leadership grounded in prayer. CCS courses explore many facets of Christian spirituality and offer students both an academic foundation and experiential learning for their future ministries.

 

WHO ARE CCS STUDENTS?

Students come for spiritual enrichment, deeper understanding and experience of their faith, discernment of God’s guidance, sabbatical study, and education and formation for new spiritual guidance ministries in the church and the world. Students might be parish lay leaders, parish clergy, chaplains, artists and performers, business leaders, teachers, homemakers, or employees of non-profit organizations. The CCS prepares leaders for ministries of spiritual guidance in a variety of settings: congregations, religious communities, schools, health chaplaincies, and vocational and religious counseling centers.

 

CCS ACADEMIC PROGRAMS

Through the CCS, the Seminary offers several degree and certificate programs to equip students for academic study and Christian ministry in spirituality, including:

  • Master of Arts in Spiritual Direction (45 credits)
  • Master of Sacred Theology in Spiritual Direction (24 credits)
  • Certificate in Spiritual Direction (18 credits)
  • Certificate in the Spiritual Guidance of Children (18 credits)

These programs integrate theological study with practicum opportunities for experiential learning. The certificate programs can also be incorporated into the Master of Divinity degree for those preparing for ordination who discern a call to spiritual direction or spiritual guidance of children within their vocations. For more information on these academic offerings, please see the GTS Academic Catalog and the Course Offerings & Registrar page.

 

SPIRITUAL DIRECTION MINISTRIES

In addition to training students to study and practice spiritual direction, the CCS seeks to deepen the spiritual formation of both members of the GTS community and people outside the Seminary who want to receive Christian spiritual direction.

Throughout the academic year, the CCS sponsors a spiritual direction ministry for GTS students, faculty, staff, and residents to meet with experienced spiritual directors in order to discern God's presence and leading in their lives. To learn more about the spiritual directors and how to meet with one of them during the 2014-2015 academic year, please see the spiritual direction instruction page, as well as the spiritual direction calendar.

The CCS also provides referrals to spiritual directors for people outside the GTS community. If you are interested in getting connected with a spiritual director, please contact the CCS at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

 

CCS SPONSORED Events

With the hope of nurturing the spiritual lives of a diverse audience, the CCS offers a variety of events and programs throughout the academic year that are open to the entire seminary community and the general public. The offerings include weekend workshops, guest luncheon speakers, spiritual direction and prayer groups, drum circles, and quiet days. A major annual event is the Kay Butler Gill Lecture in Christian Spirituality. Past lecturers have included Roberta Bondi, Tilden Edwards, Margaret Guenther, Alan Jones, Sandra Schneiders, Martin Smith, Janet Ruffing, Robin Jensen, John Philip Newell, and Fr. James Martin, SJ.
