Between the Eight-Day Intensives
Following the first the Eight-Day Intensive, the participant enters a one-year period of guided study and development that includes spiritual companionship, and personal study. The primary focus is the participant’s personal spiritual development in the context of his or her own life and ministry. Following the second intensive, the participant continues to meet with other participants for spiritual companionship; develops their spiritual practices and awareness of God under the guidance of a spiritual director; and plans and fulfills a ministry engagement of their own design, in which they share with others something they have been learning through their experience in the program.
