Application Process

Our current Class 5 of the Charis Spiritual Director Training Program began in August of 2017 and applications are no longer being accepted for Class 5.  They will complete training and graduate in June of 2020. 

We will begin accepting applications for Class 6 in the fall of 2019 and will begin classes with an opening retreat in August of 2020.  Please contact Becky Oates, Charis Program Director EMAIL OR call 713-562-8637 to inquire about the possibilities of applying for Class 6.

We recommend anyone who is considering application to our training in spiritual direction begin sitting every 4-6 weeks with a trained spiritual director to experience spiritual direction for themselves, which will help them in the discernment process.  Please contact Rev. Cindy Serio, Coordinator of The Gathered Community of Spiritual Directors EMAIL OR call 832-330-3973 to find a covenant spiritual director.
