The Alleluia School of
Spiritual Direction

There is a hunger among Christians to go deeper in their journey with God.

The Alleluia School of Spiritual Direction emphasizes personal spiritual transformation over the simple transfer of information, developing a strong life of prayer along with the skills necessary to accompany others on their journey toward greater intimacy with God.

Our students complete three unique two-week sessions, spaced 12 months apart; so that in 26 months they will have taken all three components of the Curriculum: Prayer, Healing and Growth.

“Being in the Spiritual Direction School was really pivotal in the development of my relationship with the Lord. It was an intense immersion in the school of the Holy Spirit and gave me the confidence I needed to offer the skills I had learned to walk with others in their own spiritual journey.”
Jill Dooley, Student

“The Alleluia School of Spiritual Direction was the most significant period of transformation in my whole life. I was focusing on my sins and failures, and living with wounded and broken emotions. I now know that I am loved unconditionally just as I am.  I am filled with gratitude every day.”
