Grace Institute Program Overview

The Spiritual Formation Program of Grace Institute is designed to immerse participants in core Christian spiritual practices. It is an ELCA Lifelong Learning Partners (Continuing Education) program.

Our main goals are deeper personal spiritual formation and development of skills in leading small groups in spiritual practices.

Since the program does not train people to be spiritual directors, our focus is not on one-to-one listening, but on listening and leading in small groups.

The Spiritual Formation Program brings the same people together four times a year for two years. Participants sign up for all eight sessions.
