Formation Program

The Ministry Institute participants share a common meal regularly and have opportunities for prayer, worship and social activities together. The formation program sponsors conferences and workshops to augment University classes. Possibilities abound for training and experience: hospice and grieving ministries, retreat work and spiritual direction, parish, and other ministries.

Opportunities for spiritual direction, leadership formation, prayer experiences, and common worship are provided. In a community atmosphere of mutual care and challenge, ministerial identity can grow, personal spirituality deepens, skills develop, all founded on solid theology.

Designed for contemporary ministry, the formation program integrates the spiritual, affective, and professional dimensions with a commitment to academic excellence.
