Cohorts for Spiritual Formation

These short-term online cohorts are a helpful way to learn new habits and practices.

I have benefited myself from learning within a handful of online cohorts. As part of my spiritual direction practice, I'm excited to offer a similar experience for you to learn practices that will help you grow.

I’ve gotten something helpful out of every meeting we’ve had and [they] have been really great. They have been a huge answer to prayer and a catalyst for growth in the spiritual season that I am in. Thank you!!
