Is Grace Institute for you?

The questions below can help you discern if Grace Institute for Spiritual Formation is right for you at this time.  These are the kinds of questions we have been asking and listening to in the shaping and planning of Grace Institute Program IX.  

If you have questions or would like more information, please email [email protected] or call us at 563-387-1040. 

  • Are you sensing a pull to go deeper in your relationship with God?
  • Do you hunger to explore other ways to pray?
  • Are you sensing a pull to give more fully of yourself to service, but aren't sure how to make meaningful choices?
  • Do you feel that you're at a crossroads with your faith, that something is stirring deeper searching?
  • Do you feel ready to share your faith journey with a small group over a two year period, learning to listen to the Spirit together?
  • Are you carrying sorrows, griefs, suffering that needs your honest, life-giving spiritual care in a setting where this hard work can be honored?
  • Do you want to experience vibrant, engaging worship in the company of a group you come to know and trust?
  • Are you serving others who have expressed a longing to go deeper spiritually?  Are you wondering how the fruits of contemplative practice with the Grace Institute community could facilitate your ministry and leadership with others?  
  • Are you searching for a learning opportunity that invites you into joyful community shaped by the Spirit's call to trust, mutual service and transformation?   
  • Are you seeking ways to make deeper connections with faith, prayer, justice and service? 
  • Are you drawn toward an opportunity for growing, listening and learning over two years rather than a stand alone workshop or event?
