At Grafted Life, we believe that spiritual direction is an important ministry to deepen our awareness of and engagement with God. Many believers are hungry to have someone come alongside them and help them discern God’s activity for the purpose of their continued spiritual growth.
We established the Evangelical Spiritual Directors Association (ESDA) to support Christian spiritual directors in their work, promote the ministry of spiritual direction in the church and connect believers with skilled spiritual directors.
ESDA’s wide network of spiritual directors share 3 key traits:
- Agreement with our doctrinal statement
- Successful completion of a formal spiritual direction training program
- Concurrence with our code of ethics in their spiritual direction work
Additionally, we invite pastors, leaders, and spiritual directors-in-training to join the community as Educational Companions, supporting the ministry of spiritual direction through education and outreach.
