Stevenson School for Ministry

The Stevenson School for Ministry believes that discernment is deeply important for spiritual growth. Through discernment, we explore the range of vocations (diakonia, priesthood, lay ministry) in which we as the Body of Christ can engage. Discernment helps us learn to articulate the places where God is active in our lives through a process of listening, reflecting, and responding in circles of community. And, actively engaging in discernment helps us to identify our gifts for ministry while discovering new learning opportunities to serve God and our neighbor. The Stevenson School for Ministry is dedicated to the lifelong learning and discernment processes of all Episcopalians in the Diocese of Central Pennsylvania and beyond. We seek to make theological education available to all, because we believe it to be essential to furthering the mission and ministry of the Church.

Spiritual Practices for Today provides an experiential introduction to classical Christian spiritual disciplines that nurture intimacy with God. Becoming familiar with some of
Christianity’s rich spiritual traditions, and through personal experimentation with various classical prayer-forms and disciplines, students will be better equipped to develop a prayerful Rule of Life. Because significant components of this course are experiential, a willingness to personally enter into classical spiritual prayer-forms and practices—both individual and communal.
