Enrollment & Application

If what you have read about our Interfaith Spiritual Direction Certificate Program speaks to your soul or sets your heart aflutter, we invite you to complete an Admissions Application.


Applicants must have engaged in Spiritual Direction for a minimum of 3 sessions before beginning coursework at The Chaplaincy Institute. You do not have to have these sessions completed before you apply for the program, but rather ideally before the first class that you attend. For a list of Spiritual Directors, click here>>
