Academy for Spiritual Formation
Applications are still being accepted for the two-year Academy for Spiritual Formation which begins August 18 at the Mercy Center in Burlingame, California (near San Francisco airport). Scholarship assistance is also available and the deadline is May 30 for accepted enrollees.
This two-year journey into the heart, mind, soul and will of Christ has been offered to clergy and lay participants since 1983. It is one of the most highly regarded programs of its kind, providing a balanced approach to spiritual formation with worship, lectures, silence, covenant groups, and spiritual disciplines. Participants gather eight times for five days every calendar quarter—a total of 40 days in retreat. Racial-ethnic participants are encouraged to apply.
